Great seafood

Fabulous seafood, trendy young crowd a bit loud for comfortable conversation. Still highly recommended. One more thing, get there early it's always hard to get a table.

Excellent restaurant, great seafood. Highly recommended. Had a late lunch, sat at table on the sidewalk outside, truly great service and wonderful food. Be sure to try the ceviche and the open faced tuna, very delicious. Not the cheapest place in Mexico City but some of the best food in town.

I stopped in for the tuna tostada and whole cooked fish and finished with sapote and a coffee cocktail. The meal was delicious and the atmosphere was very interesting to me as a foreigner, surrounded by the Mexico City bourgeois in their business suits and pearls. I will totally return to Contramar on my next visit to Mexico City.

I have known Contramar since 8 years ago. It is a benchmark in fresh delicious seafood. Actually three restaurant that specialize in seafood are in that corner of Plaza Cibeles. And Contramar is the best (and most expensive of them). What I love to get here and what is usually a house staple Huachinango by weight prepared as "Pescado Zarandeado"... More

I had arugula & shrimp salad that was fresh and normal portion. Then a Contramar tuna fillet, nothing outstanding but good. Finally a banana cake: delicious. Environment is comfortable and the service is excellent. There are other options in Mexico City to have same tastes with fair prices. You pay the "fashion" of eating at Roma neighborhood

The service was amazing, the food: outstanding, leave some room for dessert! Make sure to ask for the grilled fish and seafood for starter, the open fish with 2 salsas as a main to share and every single dessert is just worth it! It's a little pricey tough.

The menu is extensive, the service is top quality, the hustle and bustle of the restaurant makes it lively and delicious. It is the scene and the food that make it charming and memorable!
