“Cantina and Bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Name is very catchy and the place is very charming. We were in a big group so we reserved the second floor . They had an open air terrace with a retractable roof. The food was ok starting with the appetizers of Tostados. For main course I had grilled chicken on a bed of mashed potatoes and vegetables but it was a little bit undercooked. For desserts, try the choclate lava with vanilla ice cream or the custards.

“an interesting combination of cusines in a quaint atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

The menu in this small restaurant is very interesting. The combination of french and mexican results in some unusual and delicious combinations. We started with a combination plate of Tostados and also mezcal martinis that were very tasty!
Main course selections are varied and beautifully served with complimentary sauces.
The decorations in the restaurant are unusual with a tin ceiling, unique window frame wall hangings and hanging plants.
The service is attentive and friendly.
Overall a unique and enjoyable experience - well beyond the ordinary.

“Nice place, nice environment”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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...
