Went in last night. The six course menu was nothing at all what I had expected. So many different flavors, combined exquisitely! The fish taco with Valladolid longaniza, beans and hoja santa just blew my mind, and as for the Baby corn with powdered chicatana ant, coffee, costeño chile mayonnaise, I wouldn't call a street snack, but a true delicacy....

Pujol was not ranked #1 restaurant in Mexico City by the Wall Street Journal for no reason. This place is beyond amazing. Don't even know how or where to begin to describe it. By far, the best culinary experience I've ever had. The ingredients used at this place blew my mind off. For example, escamoles (ant roe) and maguey worm... More

Pujol is proposing a six moments menu composed with different re-interpretations of traditional Mexican cooking. Not only the traditional Mexican dishes ( such as mole, tacos...) come in a modern and delicious version but also some ingredients deserve a special mention for their role and the images they bring to mind ( mayonesa de hormiga chicatana , sal de gusano,...

Often times words like inventive and imaginative are code words for interesting food but so far out that one either doesn't really enjoy it, or if one does, one leaves feeling hungry. Not so at Pujol with the gifted chef Enrique Olvera who so incredibly transforms classic Mexican cuisine and re-presents it in news ways. A tasting menu is offered... More

If you go to a gourmet restaurant like Pujol, you need to go there with an open mind. You should go there to try out something new and to be surprised. That is precisely what I am looking for: something new, something worth to remember. Of course not everybody will share one’s taste and preferences, but I was very pleased... More

It's hard to say I was disappointed in a meal that was so good. But this restaurant is one of the highest ranked in the world (by Pellegrino) and it wasn't even the best food I had in Mexico. Most of the dishes had a "thick" taste where individual ingredients couldn't be distinguished. One plate was simply two moles with... More

We'd heard from our friends that Pujol was a must-do while we were in Mexico City. There is nothing wrong with Pujol at all; we unfortunately found it over the top and not worth the money relative to the other great food available in Mexico City. Because it is a tasting menu, the courses are inventive but small (you're able... More

This restaurant was a recommendation of a friend. They serve a six corse degustation menu which was very well elaborated. The ambiance of the restaurant was very cosy. The down side was the service. Our waiter expected us to choose our plates before we ask for the bevarage. All the six plates came very fast. We spent just one hour... More

This would be our most expensive meal of our one week visit to Mexico, and I expected that. And I suspected that despite the popularity of the restaurant and the sterling reviews it has received, I would walk out of the establishment remembering the "experience" rather than the food itself. And that turned out to be the case. The restaurant... More
