After 4 years in Mexico the verdict is out: Maximo Bistro is by far the best restaurant experience in Mexico. No, you can't make reservations during the weekend and you'll have to wait at least 30 minutes to get a table. Yes, the style of the restaurant is unassuming, almost no decoration, no frills here. But this restaurant is all about the FOOD (luckily) and everything on the menu is really excellent, delicious and very fresh. The chef-owner and his lovely wife are always in the restaurant, a great team, good service but above all heavenly food.

The food here is excellent. Gourmet dishes and gourmet ingredients. Porcini mushrooms, buffalo cheese mozzarella, lamb, etc. everything was prepared with real quality. I strongly recommend it. It is a small place, you should have a reservation and get on time.

Too much waited, half an hour even though we had a reservation. The place nothing special, meat and fish very good, everything else without any great adjective. Waiters with bad manners and untrained.

This small, local restaurant sets the standard for fine cuisine in the city. The unassuming, simply decorated restaurant is the perfect setting for what have been some of the most memorable meals in Mexico City. A constantly changing, seasonal and locally-supplied menu has never failed on any of my visits. And after having lived here for over 10 years, this is still a personal fave and the top of my list of recommendations for visitors and locals alike!

Big hype about restaurant, but not as impressed...
Had to wait an hour to be seated. Fresh produce and good quality food, but was expecting more after several comments from foodies... Service was overwhelmed.
