My husband and I have had tasting menus all over the world and we were really looking forward to visiting Pujol this past weekend -- what a let down! We actually left the restaurant three courses in, something that we have never ever done in our lives -- courses four (sorbet) and five, dessert were simply not worth the effort.... More

The service was very friendly and professional. In addition to a very nice wine list, they offered a wonderful selection of Tequila and Mezcal. Each dish was authentic, inventive, and delicious. It simply could not have been better.

This is the best Restaurant in Mexico City, Period. This is a dining experience like you'll never have anywhere else. Chef Enrique Olvera's interpretation of Mexico's flavors is something you don't want to miss. Advise: Get a reservation in advance before your visit. And if you can afford it try the degustation menu. Wine selection is wonderful

With its high rating, expected a special meal and was not disappointed. Only a tasting menu was available with limited choices. Food was highly creative and of a very high standard. Loved the taco with suckling lamb. Kale chicharron was great. Main dish was less stunning. Service was very good throughout. Expensive but not over the top.

This is truly a world class dining experience! I will always remember this meal. We were a large party w/ a vegetarian that they happily accommodated & his food was outstanding! The presentations of each course were dramatic. The dishes were innovative & contemporary. Loved every course & worth every peso! This is the type of food I would expect... More

We visited Pujol in May of this year because it was close to our hotel and it was well recommended on Trip advisor. We were lucky to get a seat at such short notice.We got the degustation menu which was helpful because we don't speak spanish although our waiter explained what everything was in English. There some very interesting dishes... More

I have read the terrible comments and think that it is all "Balderdash". This restaurant is scrumptious starting with the best 'gorditas' and ending with some amazing 'mole'. This restaurant is excellent!!! I would recommend to order the 'aguas' which a short from heavenly.

Picked Pujol to celebrate our anniversary and considering a dozen other restaurants we sampled in Mexico in two weeks, it was a great choice. The food was creative and expertly served. The staff was attentive from the start to the end. All in all, it was a fabulous experience at a reasonable price point in its class.

The Best Restaurant Experience I have ever had...Wow! What a fantastic restaurant! The cuisine and entire experience were fantastic! The courses keep coming, one more exotic than the next...ants, enormous ant eggs!...I forget the others as my mind was blown by the insects! Some tasty, some not so much...but an unforgettable meal! Something you must do, if you're in Mexico... More
