Apart from the load beat music this dreadful restauant serves poor food combined with disorganized service that at times became a farce. Pushy sales pitch might appeal to the oligarchs with more money than taste but this is a fare cry from cusine.
Fish was dry, flavour confused and mushy. There are so many amazing places to eat in Polanco do waste your time here if you appreciate fine food.

Excellent place for meat lovers as Sylvestre does a great job with letting you choose your cut of meet, preparing it exactly how you like it and cutting it table side (see pictures). Also give you a range of options for steak knives or your very own machete

Good overall is very good, great bar too, recommend the Pisco sour, tequilla Bandera and the extensive wine list.

What an awesome place. The house it is located at was built for Mexican legend and actress María Félix. It has been transformed into a beautiful restaurant with several rooms all connected to create an elegant place. It’s two bars are made with large tree logs adding a unique touch. It has an elevator for those with limited mobility. We tried the Kobe beef. It was a delight. The place is pricy but it is worth every penny.

Argentinean taste, good steak and kind service. Environment and music were nice. I did not find a Dulce de Deche dessert but Maracuya cheese cake it is recommended.
