Once again featured on the San Pellegrino list of the "World's 50 Finest Restaurants"—and moving up thirteen spots to number 36—Pujol is Chef Enrique Olvera's extraordinary personal approach to Mexican cuisine, famed for reinvention and ongoing perfectionism, where tradition and contemporary gastronomy live side by side as expressed in culinary techniques both ancient and modern. Using both imagination and delicacy, Olvera recombines Mexico's nearly infinite ingredients and flavors, demonstrating an extraordinary food culture's potential in obsessive detail.

Delightful dinner

I've been to this place several times and never get tired of it. Even if some people disagree on the portions of the food or the prices is totally worth it. Enrique Puyol takes Mexican food to another level. In love with their bread!

We went into Pujol with high expectation given it's recent upgrade on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list and it did not disappoint. It was the best formal meal that we ate in Mexico on this trip and probably the best that I have eaten in Mexico after 10+ trips over the past three years. The space is fairly small,... More

We decided to try this place as it was voted something ridiculous like #16th best in the world by Forbes magazine. We arrived for our 9:30pm and were forced to stand for fifteen minutes whilst our table was being prepared (the two chairs in the waiting area were already occupied). When we were finally served, the food was decent and... More

We went here with another couple to celebrate a special occasion. It was a very neat experience! I liked the dark, comfy atmosphere inside the restaurant and even though all the tables were filled in the small space, it still felt very private. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing and they did really with explaining each dish and... More

4 of us had reservations for lunch. We tried to get reservations for dinner but were unable to because of the demand. The restaurant is small and unassuming, not even a name on the outside. We sat at a large round table at the back of the restaurant. The menu is a tasting menu only (same at lunch as for... More

One single menu for one single price for lunch or dinner, so it's an easy choice. While expensive, certainly worth it. Simply put, one of the best restaurants in the world for me. YES! It's in Mexico City and make sure you book your reservation with plenty of time, at least a week and if possible, a bit more. Kudos... More

I had the privilege of visiting Pujol in June 2015. The restaurant space is simple and unassuming. The food is the star at all times. We went on a Monday night and it was packed. The restaurant was loud, people were in a celebratory mood or having business meetings. It was not a quiet/private dining experience like other top restaurants.... More

Compared to the other delicious restaurants in the city the food was night mind blowing. It was exactly as described in reviews. To my shocking surprise the octopus was chewy. The staff weren't interested in taking it back but more concerned in getting through the tasting menu. Don't be sad if you don't get a reservation here.

Experience dining that makes time disappear. Turn up with curiosity, close friends and no evening plans. We have, more than once, had lunches that roll well into the evening, and the set up for dinner reservations. Great selection in drinks- the chefs personal participation in every detail is notable.
