Neighborhood: San Angel
Description: Mexico City’s first and best creperie, established in 1974. Cluny is located in the heart of the historical quarter of San Angel in the south of Mexico City and housed in a grand building which was the former residence of one of the area’s wealthiest families, built in 1901 and now listed as one of the city’s historical landmarks. This location, together with an elegantly appointed décor is what gives Cluny a very romantic, cozy and inviting atmosphere, as our tables are set amongst stone & brick arches and vaulted ceilings.Over its 35+ years of existence, Cluny has increased its number of tables from 14 to 80+, now taking up almost the entire ground floor of the former residence. This expansion has also been reflected on our menu, which now not only offers traditional crepes, but also innovative and delicious seafood dishes, grilled meats, one of the city’s most famous salad bars, traditional French dishes, bread and ice creams made by our chef, and a beautiful Belle Epoque style wine bar which opened in 2003.

Cluny has something unique: they capture the French vibe and serve it on every dish. Overall, it was a very pleasurable experience. If I had to highlight something, their wine selection would be it. Incredible bang for the buck. Also, amazing salad bar, really.

“A delicious blend of French cuisine and local touch.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

I was delighted with the outside sitting area. It reminded me of a French cafe. I had the "atun indonesio" (Indonesian tuna) as an appetizer and that went great. The atmosphere was nice, the food a notch above its price range and the waiter was kind. No regret after waiting 10 minutes for a table. Also, try one of their many beers!

“Great place for a crêpe and a glass of wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Excellent restaurant sandwiched between a few other eateries in an alley of restaurants. We've had terrific seafood crêpes here. The interior feels a bit more upscale and warm than most restaurants in Mexico.

“Great crepes. That's it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

If you want good crepes, you want to go to Cluny. Don't bother searching for something else in the menu, that would be a waste. You can have salty and sweet crepes, with some wine and have a great meal in a very, very nice place, in a very nice neighborhood. This is a perfect place for a romantic celebration.

“Excellent french restaurant in Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Excellent food, the crepes were delicious, and believe it or not, their hamburgers are extraordinary too! Although a bit expensive, it is totally worth it for an elegant dinner to celebrate a special occasion!
