Good menu and excellent food. Offers value for money with great service. Worth hunting out as slightly off the main track.

Corner French bistro in the best sense (of Russian "bistro"...."quick"). Attentive waitress, no unnecessary waiting. There when you wanted them. Limited menu, but wide range of dishes. Excellent bread basket.... careful! Tried a great spinach tarte and then the lamb dish (reminiscent of a curry). Even more reasonable prices than French restaurants in the South of the city and just... More

My girl and i enjoyed a late streetside dinner, were well attended to, and enjoyed the meal. However I was a little disappointed that this was not the cheap hole-in-the-wall I had hoped for. Mains are MX$150-190, entrées MX$55-90. I'll be back, but only for wine and dessert.

I've been a few times to Bistro Arlequin with friends who enjoy specific dishes and the authentic setting... Including the poor french-like service. The food can be good (medallions in Grand Marnier sauce, although adapted to well done mexican standards which would horrify any frenchie), it can also be bad (medallions in "bourgignonne" sauce), prices are strangely reasonable, but the...

We sat outside and the place was very neighborly; however the wine by the glass was poor and dishes not very spceial; we heard from our local neighbors this was regarded as a fair restaurant and that about describes it. The location in Polanca is good but for a bistro, the waiers were very average and the food similar while... More
