It's Great Fresh Seafood! It's prepared perfectly, the selection is superb, The service is impeccable and regardless of what you order, it's absolutely fabulous. If this restaurant was open 24 hours it would be packed because it is that good. When I visit Mexico city I will always dine at Contramar.

After reading some good reviews not only here we decided to spend afternoon in Contramar. Unfortunately the restarant is open only till 6.30pm and 8pm on weekends(what is pretty interesting in such a vibrant city). So we arrived earlier. Everything was almost full. Service was prompt and very friendly and the food amazing. Here you can really try the mexican... More

Great seafood, clearly a hot spot in the city. We had lunch there twice. Exceptionally good seafood, on par with major world restaurants. Excellent seviche, sea urchin toasts. the deserts are out of this world ( worth going there, independent of the great fish there! ) The location in Zona Rosa is good. Bustling place, hot, smart crowd. Better show... More

Fresh seafood, excellent service. The pescado Contramar & atun are mouthwatering. Hectic atmosphere but they never rush you. One of my favorite restaurants in DF! Call in advance for reservations or be prepared for a long wait.

Great fresh fish and seafood, the tostados are particularly delicious (hard to choose between crab and tuna as to which is best - order both!). Lovely buzzy atmosphere without being too over the top. Service is excellent (we had a total of 5 children with us, three of them under 3 and the waiters were extremely helpful and efficient). Get... More

Valet parking made things easy when we arrived. Even though it was packed, the wait was only 15 minutes. Food is excellent. My #1 favorite dish was the tuna tostada. The Aguachiles are also delicious, and the Dorado was very nicely done. Even the chips and salsa were great. Wait staff are friendly and attentive. Seems like all of the... More

I was there for lunch recently mid-week. The place was packed to the rafters. The maitre'd got us in without reservations and fairly swiftly by actually carrying an additional table into the room and setting it...big points there. Service was so fast that we didn't really have time to savor the food. The food came out fast and plates were... More

We went for lunch. The seafood was terrific and the service was really attentive. We at the jacket fish for entree and of course had the tuna taco for starter. Both were amazing. The drinks list is comprehensive too.
