At El Bajío we try to make art and culture being noticed and enjoyed by eating the magnificence of traditional Mexican cuisine. We provide a space in which the most diverse dishes of the traditional Mexican cuisine coexist, starting with the delicacies of Carmen "Titita’s" homeland of Veracruz such as the anise gorditas, the filet of fish Veracruz-style and the papantecos tamales, as well as typical dishes of northern Mexico, including the pride of the house: carnitas Michoacán-style, as well as other delicacies from Yucatán, Puebla and Oaxaca, to mention a few others.

Two couples thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant in the 222 mall. Everything was freshly made and presented in a lovely fashion. Service was prompt and the staff was quite helpful. For an easy delicious meal that is reasonable and accessible we highly recommend El Baio and it is located in a nice area for a stroll or some quick shopping.

This time we only went twice, once for lunch and once for breakfast. Fantastic food, great service. Clean restrooms. Good deals for breakfast. The only fault I've ever found was the lack of alchohol in the blended margaritas, so we drink other drinks now. I wish we had these at home! I'd want to buy a meal ticket!

El Bajio has every dish you would find at your Mexican grandmothers house, from fideo or bean soup to a steak with beans and rice. Basic Mexican food priced right and with a big selection. There are many location throughout Mexico City.

This place has some good Mexican food. The tortilla soup was delicious and non spicy, it was a chicken broth based soup rather than a tomato based. The dessert was good and the service was excellent.

The food was good but unfortunately what I remember the most are the waiters hovering by the table waiting to do... More

It's a nice restaurant in the heart of Fashionable Polanco near the main hotels where you can eat good authentic Mexican food at a very good price. Excellent for large groups.

I was there to have breakfast. I had to wait for another person who eventually never came. Meanwhile the waiters offer me many kinds of mexican typical bread and hot chocolate without ant charge. The only problem was that the service is a little bit slow.
