“Place to be seen, overpriced, overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

It is a fancy restaurant located in Hotel Presidente Intercontinental, and there are some delicious dishes. But at the end of the day, it's more of a place for the rich and powerful to rub shoulders. Food was delicious, but not mind blowing, especially for the price you are paying.

“Good, very Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Though it is a great place with great food, it is very expensive, and I dont know if its 100% worth it.

“Great social place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This restaurant is very good. A little bit pricey but the service is good, the food is great and this seems to be the "in" place on Thursdays and Fridays. Very social place.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Located inside the Intercontinental Presidente Hotel I was expecting better. The wine list was excellent though the prices were a bit steep. My group was a table of four, three of the four meals were average and one was dismal at best. Stick to the french food and you will be fine, one the people in my party ordered Ceviche and it was in Ketchup.... as if it were a shrimp cocktail...

I would recommend the salads and the French Onion Soup.

“An authentic Paris after-theater treat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

One of my top-10 picks in Mexico City, classy atmosphere, diverse French cousine with one of the best Ouyster bars in towm. Premium service and price consistent with food quality. Try the French oysters, Lobster bisque, ane fresh fishb filet - wine list is spectacular! Over 7,000 wine cellar options.
