There are so many restaurants in the city is but Contramar is among the best ones when it comes to really fresh seafood there are two of them the one in Durango always crowded and the other one in Polanco lesser crowded. It is difficult to recommend any particular dish but from Cebiche to a grilled fish is trully delicious! service is fast, good...price I'll say is just about fair!

This is definitely one of the best restaurants in mexico for seafood and fish, everything is fresh, tasty and delicious.
The place is nice, nothing fancy, always crowded, the service is great.
You must have a reservation if not you can wait for a long time but it's worth it.

I´ve been here for about six times in the last four years. The last year I only went once because I got tired of the waiting line routine.
If you go for lunch during weekends, be prepared to wait at least half and hour for a table. The decoration is simple but the informal atmosphere has something that is attractive to people, I really dont understand why it is always crowded, maybe because local artists like to gather here and people want to see and maybe meet them at the bar.
The tostadas with atún is my favourite dish, the menu is average, don´t expect to get any gourmet dish. The prices and service are average as well. They don´t serve dinner.

The music is nice, but a little lowd if you want to have a good conversation.
Not a place to go with children.
If you are a tourist and are short of time, think twice if you want to spend your time here. México is a city with an endless list of interesting places to visit.

this place is one of my favorites, there's always a line, so be sure to make a reservation at least a week in advance. Friday is THE DAY, you can bump into actors, politicians, socialites....ther'e no dinner, since all the lunch tables stay until 10pm or 11pm, their closing hour.
try the tuna tostadas, soft shell crab tacos, or really anything in the menu! be sure to tell your waiter to hold a piece of strawberry meringue cake, because it desapears fast

Getting a table might imply a short wait. Food's so good people don't want to rush through the meal! Fresh seafood, the service is fantastic and highly recommended.
