Food is ok. Nothing to write home about. Its past prestige has helped it set an expensive menu... This is a has-been place in a still trendy location. I hadn't visited in a long time and was disappointed, I assure you, food is good but you should get better value for the price tag.

Celebrating my son´s birthday. A duck-lover. Plum soup a little too sweet for me but good. The duck was perfect. The skin crispy, moist meat, perfectly deboned. Could stop enjoying it. The place is a guarantee for good roasted duck. A little pricy but well worth it. An order of duck may be enough for 2 is your not very... More

Although there are many delicious items in the menu, like lamb ribs or polish style soups, it is evident that many people came for Pato Tin (Tin Duck) . For me is the best roasted duck that I have tried and it is not expensive because it is enough for two. At the end you may try Blintze for dessert.... More

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.
