“Quite charming!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

This is, without doubt, one of the nicest locales in Mexico City. The veranda is the highlight, as well as excellent service and wine choices.
The menu has plenty of options, mixing different flavors. My choice wasn't extraordinary, fish fillet with avocado leaves and oil, but the appetizers were very tasty.

“Great starters, mains a bit bland…”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Really enjoyed the environment, and the service was great. Lots of good interior ideas. Starters were really good, we had the mixed tostadas. Mains were a bit bland. My friend had the fish baked in bread, which actually was fish. Baked in bread. Couldn't complain about that, but it did come out a bit bland. I had the crab ravioli, which was overpoweringly salty.
Deserts was creme brûlée, in three flavours. But actually I couldn't distinguish between them other than by colour because it was just sugar, more sugar, and lots of sugar flavours.
Good service and environment, okay price, just wished the food was a fraction better.

This place is very very good for a nice romantic dinner. Lovely place and great food. The attention is great. Nice option to go to a new place in the core of the Roma.

“My best memory of Mexico City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

I had the raw tuna tostadas, beef tenderloin and lava cake with ice cream, accompanied by a chateau timberlay merlot. This could possibly have been the best meal I have ever had - as a complete meal. The ambiance was also perfect - french bistro decor in the heart of mexico. The name says it all.

“Mexican bistro with fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

In the heart of the Condesa with a sophisticated atmosphere. Tried the duck the stake and then the roasted tomatoe soup - all very good! Came during the day but would likely be back for dinner, maybe in the outdside patio if it nice weather.
