I enjoyed El Bajio. I was in town for work and staying at a hotel nearby and came here twice during my visit. I liked almost everything I had, minus the cactus salad, but that's only my personal taste, not because it was bad. The only other thing I didn't like was the chips that they bring you when you...

If you're looking for reliable restaurant where they have good food but not amazing food, and this is your place. I have the mole with chicken and it was very delicious. The tortilla soup was also delicious. The only thing I did t like about this restaurant is that it's in an American style mall. Ugh!

If you are looking for a traditional meal with the quality that Polanco promises, you have found the place. Enjoy many traditional plates along with ambience, great service and within walking distance of most hotels.

We popped in because it looked very clean and authentic. We had hot chocolate, a muffin, pastries stuffed with cheese and pork ribs in a tomato based sauce with some tortillas. The quality was excellent and the price was more than reasonable.

Four of us ate dinner at El Bajio because of their reputation for authentic Mexican food. It's well earned. Three had the same beef dish and were very happy. Good drink menu. Very attentive servers. Nice atmosphere and clean bathrooms!

If you want a good Mexican food options in the Campos Eliseos area of Polanco El Bajio is a good choice. The food is good and sufficient and service is very good.

In a GREAT area and near many hotels. Food was delicious and had a modern Mexican twist. Didn't try the deserts but the drinks were great!

This is purely Mexican restaurant with no choice of any not so Mexican plate. I had a regular chicken breast with vegetables and it was pretty tasteless. This place is supposed to be top but the inside is just like any other restaurant. What bothered me the most is that the staff was not really nice.

I went with a group of ten people after work and we had a great time at El Bajio. Although this was the only restaurant I had time to go to during my brief stay (for work) in Mexico City, many people recommended it as a place to go where we could all dress casually and enjoy a good meal.... More

At El Bajío we try to make art and culture being noticed and enjoyed by eating the magnificence of traditional Mexican cuisine. We provide a space in which the most diverse dishes of the traditional Mexican cuisine coexist, starting with the delicacies of Carmen "Titita’s" homeland of Veracruz such as the anise gorditas, the filet of fish Veracruz-style and the papantecos tamales, as well as typical dishes of northern Mexico, including the pride of the house: carnitas Michoacán-style, as well as other delicacies from Yucatán, Puebla and Oaxaca, to mention a few others.
