We tried many dishes including extraordinary tuna tacos and grilled dorado with green sauce and grilled shrimp. I specified not hot and spicey and everything was still delicious and unusual and the corn tortillas made on the spot were the best we've had in the week we've been he so far. The only difficulty for us was that we stayed... More

At this moment Contramar, is just a good place to eat. The tuna fish tostadas are still the best dish in their menu. Drinks are quite expensive. Place is good, tables are simple and everything is clean. The not so good thing is their bathroom, smelly and not clean for a restaurant of their category. And you have to be... More

This is often difficult to get into because the are not open in the evenings. You can make it a late lunch or even go as late a 16:30 or 17:00 for an early dinner. There are many upscale locals here including business, couples, and families. Expect tables that are close together. Then just enjoy the fantastic seafood.

The tuna here is amazing, probably the best quality we have had anywhere, we ate here twice for lunch it is so good and had about 3 different tuna dishes, our favourite being the tuna tacos. Our first thought was that the food must suffer in such a big, busy restaurant, but not at all, this is a well oiled... More

I ordered the special & the popular tuna tostada. They all tasted fresh, but I've had tastier fish dishes in Puerto Escondido, so although I'd come back, I wouldn't make it a priority. Service was top notch, though. Very helpful, not snooty & patient.

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
