Service was great, and the food was quite good. We had a party of five and had made reservations. The atmosphere is modern and friendly.

We went on a Thursday night. Food was decent. The music was so loud and honestly unbearable. Will not return without earplugs.

I loved every minute I was there. The food is awesome! We went to Porfirio's to celebrate my father's birthday, and it was a very great time. You have to make reservation, so I recommend you to use the OpenTable service. We ordered some guacamole with chapulines (Mexican traditional dish), and the grilled octopus. It's one of the most beautiful... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us. We walked in after a whole day spent at the pyramids without making a reservation. There was a waiting list of over 1 hour. We decided to wait in the small but comfortable lobby. There was not even room to sit at the bar. After we were seated down, the restaurant was crowded... More

This has been my 4th time at this restaurant. They have let me down all four!! Although the place is nicely set and a nice terrace. Away to much noice, crowded spaces between tables, wrong place for restrooms ( you have to literally jump between seats). Service is really bad. Waiters are too cocky, if they think you are not...

Really good place for dinner in a business environment. The Mexican food is great for foregeins. I really recommend the carnitas of tuna.

Polanco is the place to see and be seen, and this restaurant is no exception! Porfirio's serves an interesting combination of street food, but in a fancy restaurant. Presentation is kitschy and fun, and it's a popular spot for birthdays and other celebrations.

The octopus and lobster is a must! But the best thing is the service ... David is an absolutely good person!
