“cosomilitan, unique (still) and a pleasure for eyes and tastebuds”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

as long as the cooks don't run out of ideas, this place (i'd recommend it more in the evenings than over lunch) will surprise you with nice arrangements, surprising combinations of foods and taste, all in a very pleasant, cosmopolitan environment

“Loved it !”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We had the tasting menu with accompanying wines last night and it was fantastic!. It started with the waiter's suggestion of a tamarind frozen marguarita, and each course and each wine was superb. The food was described to us in English and they even said if we didn't like anything they would change it. At 935 pesos, (1675 for the wine pairing) - about £50 this is great value, great food and great service

“No thanks!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We went to this restaurant as it was rated one of the most outstanding restaurants and honestly we don't know why, the service was awful, the food was not so good, it was really a great disappointment, and a loss of money, we will never go back

“Presumptuous but expensive $$$$$$$$$$”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Rated as one of the best restaurants in Mexico, but honestly Mexican food is so amazing and one of the few cultural foods in the world that is protected by UNESCO that I would not call this the best restaurant in Mexico City. The prices are ridiculous and the food very presumptuous. They call it "gastronomia molecular". And its easy to fall into the trap of thinking expensive and small is good. Honestly I wouldn't waste the money if you want to try really good real mexican food.

“DISAPOINTMENT IS NOT EVEN THE WORD”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This restaurant was suopused to be one of the best 50 restaurants in the world , number 36 , I dont know who or how gave this place to them but is defently one of the worse expiriences we've had
with a dinner on a place that pretends to be what is not , I had the tasting menu , and there was not an
item that left a nice memory or even a nice taste in my mouth , the quality of the food is not
close to match the prices and the creativity is very poor , the taste itself is completly average
my husband had 2 courses and one of them, had nothing much to enjoy , but his ribeye was so dry and chewy that he left half of it , to top it off the sauce was a joke , obviously the people that rates the restaurants is quite corrupted , or Mr Arzak made it happen some how , but he needs to go there and double teach his students,
all I can say is that I have eaten in 50 other places in Mexico city and the world , 50 times better for half the price , I should have listened to my friend who told me they were going down , I really regret waisting my time and money going there, when this was supoused to be one extraordinary expirience , SO PLEASE , DO NOT WAIST YOUR TIME AND MONEY AS I DID !!!!!!!!!, people in this industry needs to learn respect for their costumers .
