We were here in February this year (2015) and we had the PATO TIN for the first and it was GREAT! So we decided to come back and have it again as our last Great meal here in Mexico City. We are both very happy we did! Fantastic service just like last time - Best in Mexico City!

Loved the Tin Duck. Crispy outside and juicy inside. Really enjoyed the chilled Polish vodka. Great prompt service. Could have more time between courses but it was a rainy wet night and not busy at all. Highly recommend.

A real find. The duck was delicious. The starters and other mains are solid, like excellent old-style European home cooking. I have been to Poland a few times and found the taste of the place spot on. The bar has everything you want. Above all, the service is attentive but not overbearing. Oh, it can be a romantic spot or... More

Food is ok. Nothing to write home about. Its past prestige has helped it set an expensive menu... This is a has-been place in a still trendy location. I hadn't visited in a long time and was disappointed, I assure you, food is good but you should get better value for the price tag.

Celebrating my son´s birthday. A duck-lover. Plum soup a little too sweet for me but good. The duck was perfect. The skin crispy, moist meat, perfectly deboned. Could stop enjoying it. The place is a guarantee for good roasted duck. A little pricy but well worth it. An order of duck may be enough for 2 is your not very... More

Although there are many delicious items in the menu, like lamb ribs or polish style soups, it is evident that many people came for Pato Tin (Tin Duck) . For me is the best roasted duck that I have tried and it is not expensive because it is enough for two. At the end you may try Blintze for dessert.... More

Probably the 2nd best Polish restaurant in Mexico. Although staff was attentive, food took a long time to reach the table. Not all dishes were equally good... But the Tin Duck and the Steak Tartar are to die for! Also try the Suwrowka, which is a shot of chilled vodka in buffalo grass. Coffee's decent.

Good welcome. Nice waiters. The best "ice cold vodka"(literally packed in ice). Exceptional roasted duck with all the polish trimmings, nice surroundings. So my wife paid her compliment on one of the best lunches she ever had, and that is a real compliment!
