If you are a foodie, or just adventurous I would eat at Pujol. The dining room is dark and elegant, and relatively quiet, even when full. The spirits and wine offerings were sophisticated and delicious. Have a mescal or tequila aperatif. The sangrito accompaniments were delicious as well. We had delicious Mexican wines as well. The dinner was a six... More

Pujol was better than we thought it would or could be. Dinner was a six course meal. Three of the courses give you a choice of four items. Everything was excellent. The service was excellent and not intrusive, the presentation was beautiful. Pujol truly deserves to be recognized as one of the finest restaurants in the entire world.

I came to Mexico city for Pujol. No other reason. I wanted to be inspired. I wanted the food to make me feel something. I was looking for surprises. Pujol delivered. Every dish was a story and a spectacle. The mole dish at the end made me cry. The complex simplicity was dumbfounding. I would move in if I could.... More

Reviews and accolades for Pujol have been around for a while and it lives up to the hype. Service is impeccable and food is delicious. Courses are nicely paced and all come with an informative description. The agua fresca when I arrived in the rain was a nice touch as well.

Pujol, more than a restaurant, is a culinary experience¡ The different flavours, tastes, smells, aromas, and texture of food that they offer you at Pujol´s is an experience that you have to undertake. Expensive, but it is worth every mexiacan peso they charge you. By the way, the tequilas and mescals are superb¡

We went for my girlfriend's birthday and we had a magnificent night. I think that the price is not even that high compared to many other fancy restaurants that you find anywhere in Europe for example. The food is way better than I imagined. The whole experience is great. The sommelier was a very nice young man that behaved simple... More

Prepare yourself for this procession of amazing, flavorful food extravaganza. My favorites were the smoked, baby corn in the pumpkin pot, the 1,011 day old mole and the soft barbacoa taco. The ant eggs were a special treat. Fantastic dinning experience; do not pass this one up.
