“Tasty, fancy and creative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Dulce Patria is tasty, fancy and creative restaurant in a cool area in Mexico City. Chef Martha Ortiz is charming and exotic. It is for special occasions, it's a shame because it should be also a neighborhood restaurant. The food is very good, the chef is very talented. The names of the plates are complex and sometimes not easy to understand.
The ceviche with the chamoy sorbet was good. What this place needs is more ambiance, it is dry. It doesn't make it at the end, there is always something that lacks here. There is a feeling of being outside the city, in the province, but not in a good way.

“Overrated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We had high hopes and left with a poor impression. The service was rushed, not at all what you want or expect in a fine dining establishment. While there is a sense is whimsy and fun on the menu and in the presentation, the food is just not good enough, inspired or revelatory. There are so many better meals to be had in Mexico City - both high and low cuisine. Enjoy those and skip this.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I went to Dulce Patria based on its reviews on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed!
We decided against the full tasting menu but the food was delicious (and small portions so you could try more courses). The Maitre D and the waiters were all very helpful and helped us to select the food and the wine to complement it.
A great experience, only marred by the woman on the next table, who complained about the "cheap" perfume my friend was wearing (which was far from cheap and not overpowering!). So my only negative comment would be that the tables are quite close together.
