As mentioned, the food is awesome the tuna, carpaccio, octopus and rissotto are incredible. The place is awesome and the wine menu includes wide variety of wines specially Mexican from mid range and a bit higher. My downside was the service, awful slow, ask for three recommended beers and after 20 minutes they told us that they ran out of... More

The architecture is quite nice and the place is cozy, it has two areas, one inside and one terrace where everyone wants to be. On the night we visited rain came down pouring,... More

A thing to do in Mexico City is go to the " Saturday Bazar " in San Angel. If you are there, I would go to have lunch in Bistro 83. Ample private parking, located in a small shopping center. They start serving lunch at 2.00 PM. Service was excellent and so was the food. Judy, my wife had a... More

I love the place. Just beside the Bazar Del Sabado which is a wonderful place to spend a Saturday admiring paintings and sculptures to buy as bargains directly from the artist. Food is excellent. Atmosphere superb.

With a very nice terrace, excellent food and great service; you will be in for a treat. The fish plate with citrics is superb and so its the chocolate dessert. Great food, service and consistency is what you will find in this restaurant every time.

First, the setting is gorgeous....San Angel is a lovely district in Mexico City with cobblestone streets. On Saturday mornings, many vendors sell art right outside the area where Bistro 83 is located. The restaurant faces away from the bustle of the vendors, overlooking a lovely garden. We sat on the patio framed with large stone columns. We shared two appetizers...the... More

This is a restaurant that focuses on excellent food all across the menu, not relying on one single specialty. Every dish that you order is excellent. For work reasons, I have had the opportunity to sample everything on the menu and the high level of quality is consistent all around. The service is highly professional (no price-oriented recommendations here) and... More

Staying in San Angel

Neighborhood Profile
San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant details displayed throughout its streets, antique residences and haciendas where famous actors like Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent families used to live and that have now been turned into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An array of cultural and artistic activities are organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays when the San Jacinto Plaza and surroundings really shine as artists gather to exhibit a variety of arts and crafts, from paintings to clothing.
