Very charming, excellent food, great service. Reasonably priced. Ask for front table. You can easily convince yourself that you're in a Paris cafe. The main greeter and server speaks English. We had the onion soup, moules mariniere, and filet au poivre. All delicious, especially the sauce on the steak; my wife soaked up every drop with her frites. We will... More

I highly recommend Chez Loulou. It’s a place you can’t miss if you are in Mexico City and want to indulge with some amazing French food. It’s a small place but very pleasant, all the staff is very friendly. Don’t Miss it!!

When my wife and I arrived by taxi I was a bit unsure of my selection. Once seated upstairs overlooking the open stairway it was all WOW. Excellent moules & frites, great duck confit, nice wine list. Service from two young gentlemen, one from France, one from Quebec, was friendly and terrific. We live in Mexico and we will be... More

Such a great time, staff, service, price, a gorgeous salmon with lemon sauce.... Mmmmhhhh!!! It's a small place with a nice atmosphere and some of the best french food I've ever had. Easy to pass by without noticing it, amongst the many other huge restaurants in Polanco! And upstairs, there is perfect smoking area. I'm delighted I found it on... More

We had a wonderful meal and felt right at home. It´s all in the details, and Loulou has them mastered. The morning of the day of our reservation, Loulou herself called us to ask where did we want our table. It is such a small gesture, but it intrigued us and we were not disappointed when we arrived. I´m sure... More
