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

We took the menu and every option we chose was fantastic. Is quite expensive but worth going to try this special food made primarily with local and seasonal ingredients. The place is nothing special and it's for me a little dark. The service is good and they explain each of the courses.

Pricey but well worth it. Be prepared for very small portions but explosive flavors. One of the nice options for 'Alta cocina Mexicana' More suited for romantic evening than for business

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,...
