I came here for dinner here with a few colleagues. It was a very pleasant experience. For the first time, I tried the beef tongue and that was delicious. The only reason I did not give a five star rating is because - we called for a reservation earlier in the day and were told it was not required. When... More

It was pouring rain. Sitting in this restaurant and looking outside made us feel like we were in the rain forest. It's a casual atmosphere in a very beautiful setting. I had the best lamb that I have ever had in my life. It quite litterally melted in my mouth. My wife had the snapper and it was delicious. We... More

I really like Merotoro--service is excellent, the food is generally excellent (some dishes are better than other), not at all haughty (i.e. you won't find a tasting menu with precious renditions of Mexican dishes). AND the restaurant has a great buzz. Mexicans enjoying Mexico (Mexican Happiness). The entire front of the restaurant opens to a jungle in the middle of... More

I popped in to Merotoro for an early dinner after a long day of sight seeing. I was wearing walking shoes, colorful clothing, coconut shell jewelry and still had my sun visor on. No one gave me a second glance, even tho everyone else was in post-work attire. The host lead me to a window seat and gracefully handled my... More

I'll preface this review by saying: we are foodies from San Francisco- this is a restaurant for foodies. Merotoro was a recommendation from my friend who lives in Mexico City. It was the best meal we had in our 11-day trip across central Mexico and would say it's one of the best meals we've had in a while anywhere. The... More

Wonderful gastronomy inspired from Baja California. Great presentation, swift service and the freshest seafood available in town.

I went here for dinner and can only sing its praises. This isn't traditional Mexican food. Maybe modern Mexican would even be a stretch, but it's delicious and is rated in a guide as being one of the 50 best restaurants in Latin America. I can thoroughly recommend what roughly translates as the pig jaw with poached egg - don't... More

We liked this neighborhood restaurant which was recommended to us as one of the best restaurants in Mexico City. My wife & I had a four course dinner. The seafood soup was very good but it lacked seafood chunks. The scallop ceviche was good. The striped sea bass was also good by Mexico City standards and the desert was very... More

We went in for lunch on a Friday around 1:30, and didn't appear to many people there, however, we were informed that all the tables were reserved but one, thank goodness. After we sat down ordered and looked around the place was packed. We had the ceviche and the chicken, the ceviche we shared, and it was magnificent , the... More

Been here once, and will be the last one. The service is that bad that makes you wanna leave. There are plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood which have a better service.
