About
Once again featured on the San Pellegrino list of the "World's 50 Finest Restaurants"—and moving up thirteen spots to number 36—Pujol is Chef Enrique Olvera's extraordinary personal approach to Mexican cuisine, famed for reinvention and ongoing perfectionism, where tradition and contemporary gastronomy live side by side as expressed in culinary techniques both ancient and modern. Using both imagination and delicacy, Olvera recombines Mexico's nearly infinite ingredients and flavors, demonstrating an extraordinary food culture's potential in obsessive detail.

Please see my Quintonil review, which will help explain this review of Pujol. My spouse and I have eaten at Pujol several times, and the food is actually great....however the menu could use an update....it hasn't changed very much over the past four or five...years. I somehow feel that Pujol is resting on it's past reputation. The staff (not the servers) are a little bit "uppity", and even a bit rude....(not us, but I noticed this with other's). If you can have one meal while in Mexico City go to Quintonil, if you can have two; then by all means go to Pujol as well. They are both wonderful.... but as they say.... Usually the one that is in second place...try's harder....and jumps into first place!More

Continuos to be one of Mexico’s finest. Definitely top notch food. This time the menu was based on sea food. Some of the plates offered unique flavors with incredibly creative presentations. We paired the menu with a couple of Torres Alegre Zinfandel 2013 which matched...perfectly, especially at the end with the ancestral mole. Adequate safety measures from the personnel. A most have experience in Mexico.More

Overall it was a very good experience. Food is different and tasty, and they tey to accommodate restrictions or preferences. The tasting menu takes a couple of hours and at the end I felt it was too much for me, I could really enjoy the...desserts. I was definitely not a fan of the green ceviche but all the other plates were very tasty and offered an interesting combination of flavours. The suggested wines to pair were very good too. Definitely recommend this place.More

First and foremost the food was decent but not spectacular. The first few courses were better than the rest, but I have no complaints about it. The inside of the restaurant is also beautiful and stunning. However, the experience was horrendous because of the lack...of care that the restaurant had with regards to safety. I have never been in a restaurant during COVID, in both the US and Mexico, that packs so many people in such a small area, all within touching distance from one another. While all the employees had both masks and face shields, the clients are packed almost shoulder to shoulder. I have no doubt that if one person had COVID all of us would be infected. Typically I am not too worried about the virus but Pujol was so ridiculous with this that it absolutely destroyed the experience. I made a comment to both the waiter and the manager, and after a back and forth discussion during which they told us that they weren’t open seats because it was a full house, they finally moved us. They also gave us a few extra dishes and a quarter portion of free wine which was nice. They ended up charging us the full amount which was fine. That wasn’t the point. We didn’t sign up to pay $150+ just to complain and get an extra dish - we were there to enjoy the experience. If the owner of the restaurant is reading this, you should feel ashamed of yourself and for putting your customers at risk. It really is unethical for such a highly regarded and expensive restaurant. Build more barriers and space out the seats. Of all restaurants in the world you can probably afford to take a slight hit for the safety of others. If you are a potential client, I would be aware of this especially if you are in a high risk group and at the minimum ask for a seat outside or in the corner near the entrance / exit.More

When you are meant to be the best Mexican restaurant in the world the bar is set extremely high . The food is definitely different to your traditional Méxican fare . The food was good but to say it is the best would be a...stretch . Service was ok drinks take forever and the extremely sweet waitress kept apologizing for the incompetent bar tenders . Worth the visit but don’t set your hopes too high .More

This is considered to be one of the best restaurants in the world and you feel that in every course of the menu. Excellent food, friendly and professional service. At the end we were even offered to take a look in the kitchen.

An incredible experience of unbelievable food, drinks, and service in a stunning property. Mexico City is amazing because everything from street food to fine dining is delicious, but I'm so glad that we did not skip this experience. It was a magical night, and while...it is expensive, it felt well worth the price for the care the they take with everything that is served.More

Overrated vegetarian tasting menu, not worth the hype. To be honest I was hopping a lot more for the most trendy gastronomical restaurant in Mexico City. During my visit they were offering only one vegetarian menu. The dish are well executed, well balanced but a...smoke aubergine in my book do not deserve such a praise. Go visit but do not expect a 3 Michelin star experience. Closest of the alternative menu of a 1 star in London and at the same price. I guess Mexico City as better to offer.More

A modern space and deliciously modern food. I'm an omnivore by definition and this was probably the best plant-based meal I've ever had. I will definitely be back for taco tasting - it's absolutely worth a revisit!
