My husband and I had dinner at Contramar at 5:30 p.m. on a Friday recently. Although they honored our reservation very nicely, when we arrived a half hour early, it was total chaos there. I will never go back on a Friday evening; every thirty-something in the city was celebrating the end of the workweek, and the noise level was painfully high. The service was also a lot less impressive than the first time I was there. We ordered oysters, a salad and 2 different plates of tacos. The oysters came, followed by one of the plates of tacos, then nothing else, until finally (20 min. later?) the server showed up, asked if we wanted anything else, and seemed surprised to learn that we had ordered 2 other things. (It wasn't a language issue; my Spanish is pretty good.) The 2 taco dishes were ones he was urging us to try, and they were at best just okay. The oysters were nothing more than just okay, either. And I thought $100USD was a lot to pay, considering that neither the quality nor the quantity of the food was stellar. Maybe I'll give them another try; but not sure, considering that there are now so many other good seafood places in Mexico City.
