There are few times in which you come out of a place and wonder about the great experience you just had. By far, this has been one of such cases. It is surprising how creativity and the use of common ingredients found in many markets in Mexico can be mixed/combined in a way that delicious and incredible plates come to... More

I have been to Paxia twice in 3 months. Each time was a unique experience! The chef's creativity is second to none, and I love their artisan beer collection. The service and atmosphere is relaxing and comforting, and is a place anyone can come to enjoy a unique experience. Thank you!

The chef of this restaurant is said to be a very young man who is quite gifted and who other higher-end restaurant chefs often copy. His dishes and his use of unique ingredients is indeed commendable! However, many of the dishes fall short and fail to impress. There are rumors (from another chef) that his backers may have put some... More

One of my favorites in my own town. Chef is always changing menu, bringing new experiences and surprises. Each course is a delight, always has been. Food is signature Mexican Cuisine do not expect the tacos from Taco Bell or enchiladas from a street cart. It isn't a sunny light up place in a middle of a garden with a... More

A really good mix between traditional and modern cuisine. They have two options, a 5-dish a-la-carte menu where you can select from 5 different options per dish or an 8-dish menu where you will have a taste of the chefs best dishes. Great option during a visit to San Angel.

We came here but only for drinks. We wanted a tequilla tasting so we indulged in the flights of tequilla they had. They had that divided by anejo, reposado, and older tequillas. They had a delicious assortment. Never go back to Patron!

A very dark dining room with two levels. Menu a bit too adventurous. Desert bar in the dining room came up with good deserts. Good wine selection. May go back .service was good.

I went back to Paxia and it is getting better and better. I had the "Menu desgutacion", and it was simply extraordinary. Every dish was a surprise and a pleasure. I especially liked the bone marrow, the "pavo with mole" (which includes an awesome surprise which was one of the strangest culinary experiences), and the "sorullo" dessert. Really unique, original... More

We decided to go to this restaurant even though we new that the size of the meals where tiny, but when we where there we realized that the portions are ridiculously tiny, and super expensive. The fish taco entree was really good but it was the size of half a taco!!! Ok, we thought maybe because its the entree. When... More
