“Nice place, nice environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

I start with a delicious Mezcal. We tried the duck tacos which are fantastic. The crispy octopus worths a lot, but ask for a sauce, because without it is a little dry. We try also tuna but couscous came cold. The fish in a bread is too good. They made their own bread and is also very good. Dessert is not a fantastic thing, I tried a lemon tart but is not special. Waiters are very kind. My expresso coffee was very light and warm and when I tell them they bring me another very well made.

“Nice, elegant and kitsch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is located in the Roma Neighborhood, which is going through a rebirth process. Ambience is great, you can see some politicians or local media stars hanging around in a really intimate environment. Service: 3 out of 5, even though the staff is friendly they are obsessed with taking your dishes away, which may be really annoying (it was friday 1 am and the place was still full). Food, an interesting fusion of very very French with extreme Mexican produces dishes full of flavor and magic. From the bar you can pic crazy drinks such as the Taco al Pastor Martini made out of vodka, pineapple and cilantro... It's worth a try...

“High expectations are met”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Only goodness can be created with the fusion of the world's best heritage cuisines. Make sure you try the outstanding cocktails made with the freshest ingredients and don't be afraid by the combination with chilies as they are very well balanced. I personally recommend the roasted tomato soup with goat cheese and the perfectly seared tuna with cilantro pesto a dry fruits couscous. The entrecôte is also flawlessly cooked, tender and tasty, plus its served with a square of butter on top that melts while you work through the meat. Regarding dessert, the apple tart wast very humble, but the Belgian chocolate fondant with dulce de leche center and the lavender - chamomile tea was a splendid ending to the meal. All in all, food, drinks, service, atmosphere and décor create an enjoyable experience for any occasion.

“Worth Going for a Bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

This place is very convenient for those staying in the hotel sector of Polanco. It is located right across from the W Hotel and JW Marriott.
Before this restaurant, there was a popular Irish Pub. This place is certainly a step up. Someone put a lot of $$ in renovations.
The food is very good...I had the crab ravioli as an appetizer (perfect), and NY Strip with fries as a main course. The steak was ok...the fries a bit salty. Nevertheless I would go back.

“GREAT and easy "walk to" restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Our family met in Mexico City for the first time a few weeks ago. Our first meal was at Mexsi Bocu! Great because it was walking distance from our hotel! Not only is the name very unique but the food was great as well as the service and location! The wait staff were very friendly and recommended items on the menu that were their favorites! Loved the cosmopolitan feel! We will go back!
