Probably the 2nd best Polish restaurant in Mexico. Although staff was attentive, food took a long time to reach the table. Not all dishes were equally good... But the Tin Duck and the Steak Tartar are to die for! Also try the Suwrowka, which is a shot of chilled vodka in buffalo grass. Coffee's decent.

Good welcome. Nice waiters. The best "ice cold vodka"(literally packed in ice). Exceptional roasted duck with all the polish trimmings, nice surroundings. So my wife paid her compliment on one of the best lunches she ever had, and that is a real compliment!

Duck is house specialty: try roast duck, perhaps the best in Mexico City. Steak tartare is also extraordinary.

I was a guest to of my most favorite people in the world, and once upon a time, not long ago, they took us here for dinner. I don't know why, if it was the late hour, but we had the place to ourselves! The staff knew my friends who were warmly received. We sat at a beautiful table in... More

This place worths the visit. Nice, simple decorations, great service (friendly, attentive, fast, with a timing that wow!), tasty polish food with the right amount. It is different (polish food) and besides the other virtues it makes the place more interesting. It has a lot of customers.

I must admit that before going to specia I was absolutely ignorant in terms of polish food and Specia left me very pleasantly surprised. Advised by a returning customer friend of mine, we started out with a small glass of almost frozen vodka which was very good. He warned that his favorite on the menu was the house specialty, the...

Specia was an ideal place to spend a romantic evening meal. Despite it being Saturday we had the place to ourselves, at least inside, and the ambience and service were very conducive to our mood. The menu is large and if, like me, you aren't very well versed in Polish cuisine, contains a number of interesting options throughout, from the... More

Specia is one of my favorite restaurants in Mexico City. Although I always have the same dish ("Tin" duck, a polish style half-duck with roasted apples and red coleslaw), the food has always been of consistent quality. Service is very good and since it is small it feels very cozy. I highly recommend it for any occasion, but have a... More
