For our second night in Mexico City, dining at Dulce Patria was an exquisite experience. The service is exceptional, and the food preparations are each a unique, visual delight. They use forms, colors and foodstuffs to create an amazing repertoire of delightful forms and tastes,...both visually and olfactorily. The use of fruit and chocolate extracts to enhance the taste of various kinds of meats and vegetables is an unmatched skill here. The food was prepared in uniquely crafted and artistically decorated ways, and each serving is an individual work of art. Food colors, flower petals, leaves, chocolate, sauces, fruit purees and extracts are used to advantage in decorating with sight and taste, to create a whole, melding of flavors with the visual form. The creativity of the chefs is just breathtaking. Just look at he pictures on their website: I couldn’t do any justice to these with my own phone, so won’t be posting any. We started with the quesadilla multicolor, that we shared as an appetizer, and then had the Pozole Mariscos and Arrachera Nortena as our mains. Each dish was exquisitely crafted and just spectacularly presented… one is almost afraid to spoil the beauty by eating !! Overall, an exceptionally good experience, at $92 for the two of us, including tax and tips… this was a bit expensive for Mexico, for the two of us, but as an experience it was well worth the visit.More

One of the best if not the best meal we had in Mexico City. The place itself is very beautiful and the food equally so. Each dish was like eating a piece of art that thoughtfully designed and created. The food and drinks were delicious!...The service was superb. We came for my birthday and they gave us Moet and some cake and ice cream. The restaurant is located in a very safe and well-to-do part of town. We will definitely be returning on our next trip!More

The food and service at this Polanco restaurant are excellent. The downstairs or main floor room is quite crowded and busy, which can be a problem if you’re seated next to a large, boisterous party. There’s a focus on creative Mexican cuisine and every plate,...from the complimentary amuse-bouche to the appetizers and mains are artistically presented and photo worthy – they also taste great. Definitely plan to return on my next visit to CDMX.More

I’ve visited this place twice now. The first time, I was told a plate had no egg only to find out the second time it indeed had egg in it. Same happened with a plate that has pork in it. Basically, this place can’t be...trusted. A shame, considering the price range you would think they’d respect your dietary restrictions.More

The place is decorated with a sense of humor. Front of house and waitstaff are friendly, attentuve, accommodating. Cocktails were very good. Food was flavorful but the fish was a bit overcooked. I’ll remember it more for the experience than the food.

Great setting. Fabulous staff. Playfully presented dishes. Inventive cocktails. If only the food tasted as good as it looks. Go for the experience but manage your expectations about the taste of the food

After experiencing exceptional service everywhere in Las Alcobas, including Anatol, their more casual restaurant, we were truly surprised at the inattentive service we received at Dulce Patria. We sat for quite some time before getting any attention and it hardly improved later. I asked for...a wine list that included wine by the glass since my husband doesn't drink and it seemed to perplex the server. Finally another server came over and verbally offered a red or white. Unexpected to say the least in a restaurant of this caliber. The food was quite good but not even close to the best that we had during our 12 day visit to the city.More

Lovely restaurant. Professional service (we were four and our meal was served at the same time by four waiters). Dinner as excellent, each dish was a work of art. Would definitely return.

Delicious and trendy Mexican cuisine. All options have a tasty foody approach. A place to enjoy time with every course with a group of friends or coworkers.

Excellent twists on some classic Mexican cuisine with presentation and flavours taken to a high level . The staff are unpretentious and helpful eating you to enjoy the experience. Michel helped us navigate the menu andcwaxca credit to the restaurant. We shared each course which...the staff suggested we take in sequence . The pozole - a seafood and lobster lightly spiced stew was superb , the red snapper in a tomato based sauce beautifully cooked with some saffron rice in the side . Desserts were full of flavour and well balanced . A good wine list with value and broad choices . Overall very well crafted and presented good and pleasantly customer orientated staffMore

Hello, I have only been there once, however, I'm sure they can accommodate you. Food without cocktails should not be over 40-50usd/person. It's definitely worth it.. Enjoy!!
