Great burger. One of the best in the city. Really good service in a pleasant environment. Yes. The burgers at We Love Burgers and Hamburguesa Mataleón are pretty darn good too.
Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Restaurante casual . Hamburgers . Cost: . Burger Bar Joint offers unique burgers, beer and cocktails in a fun “retro” environment with American pop and light rock music. Five locations in CDMX.
Fisher’s has a big variety of fresh, quality seafood, prepared about any way you want it. Execution and service are very good. Can get busy, so arrive early.
Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Casual Dining . Hamburgers . Cost: . U.S. based steakhouse chain Capital Grille offers prime aged steaks, seafood and burgers. First-class service in a sophisticated ambience.
It’s puzzling why this restaurant doesn’t receive more praise than it does. It’s easily one of the ten best upscale dining experiences in Mexico City.
The restaurant has received nothing but good press. It was even featured on American chef Rick Bayless’s public television show in the USA, “Mexico, one Plate at a Time”.
This dining experience was so bad, in fact, that we’re adding Nicos to our list of overrated restaurants in Mexico City. It can proudly join Maximo Bistrot, and Biko on that list.
Chuchito Perez is one of the new breed of upscale Mexican gastropubs offering an interesting fusion of Mexican, Asian and European cuisine to accompany a full range of cocktails and beers.
Partners & Brothers specializes in making great gourmet burgers, but they have a menu full of popular finger foods, salads, etc. Now in 4 locations.
Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Casual Dining . Hamburgers . Cost: . We Love Burgers offer handcrafted gourmet burgers. Hot Dogs and all-day breakfast too, including a variety of egg dishes, chilaquiles, waffles and pancake
The service was good. And the prices are slightly less at Cancino than Café Toscano. And of course, you have to give it extra points for the plentitude of French bulldogs in the audience.
Capital Grille’s franchise location in Mexico City offers highest-quality steaks and seafood, albeit with a hefty price-tag. It’s “the” place in CDMX to entertain clients.
Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Gastropub . German . Cost: . Grüner Hof Biergarten is Mexico City's take on a German beer garden. A unique menu with food from all over the world. Fabulous open-air rooftop location.
Hey. They serve Eggs Benedict (sort of) and French Toast. That’s reason enough for a visit. Pleasant ambiance. Good service.
Good traditional breakfast menu in an otherwise ordinary restaurant. Reasonable prices. Worth a visit if your close but not a trip across town. The Huevos Encamisados are a good choice for breakfast.
Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Casual Dining . Eclectic . Cost: . Club Social is a great place for breakfast in Buenos Aires. But only on weekends. Eggs Benedict? They have it!
Fiebre de Malta with locations in Polanco and Cuauhtémoc (Río Lerma), offers the widest variety of beer in Mexico City, accompanied by good food and service. A beer lover’s paradise.
Hooters in Mexico City serves the same iconic hot wings and has the same trademark service as the 460 plus other locations worldwide. The entire package is good enough to land Hooters on our list of Top Picks for gastropubs in Mexico City. The chicken sandwich also made Top Picks status on our Best Sandwich in Mexico City list.
Pata Negra, with locations in La Condesa, Cuauhtémoc, Centro and Coyoacan, offers Spanish pixtos and tapas, and an impressive offering of beers and cocktails, making it a ComaBeba.com top-pick in the gastropub category in Mexico City.
Papa Bill’s. Mexico City’s most notable sports bar/restaurant. Shows both American and Latin sports on big screens. Menu is loaded with American and Mexican sports bar classics, from hot wings to tacos. Good food and service. The Polanco location is family friendly with a special area with supervision for the little ones. Great concept, well executed.
La Unica has a nice ambiance, good food and friendly, attentive service. It’s a great place to watch the trendy crowd come and go. A bit expensive though.
A pleasant terrace overlooking the park, flawless service and wide range of breakfast items on the menu, including eggs done every way imaginable, make Casa Portuguesa Ollie O’s favorite spot for brunch on a Sunday morning in Mexico City.
Eno lives up to its good reputation. Pleasant ambiance. Varied menu with reasonable price. Hard to beat the place for breakfast.
Rooftop terrace overlooking the excavation of the Templo Mayor with a limited menu of salads and sandwiches. The food and service are acceptable but the view can’t be beat. Equally good for cocktails.
Rooftop restaurant overlooking the excavation of the Templo Mayor. Excellent service. Great food. Tortillas and salsas made on the spot by Tia Maria.
Ojo de Agua mphasizes fresh ingredients, offering a variety of traditional Mexican breakfasts. Excellent chilaquiles including an egg. Good prices too.
Fontina Trattoria is not your stereotypical Italian restaurant. It’s tastefully decorated with good food and service in a family-friendly setting. All at the best prices in town. Pizza, pasta and more.
Hey! Brew Bar. It’s very sleek. It’s very cool. Very high tech. An informed and informative staff. Beautiful décor. They press it. They brew it. You name it. They do it.
Spin-off of popular market/restaurant, Delirio, with an “order and take it with you” format. Good coffee and accompaniments. Even better prices.
Toscano Cafe has a pleasant ambiance and a varied menu at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Emphasis is on Italian, including the Illy coffee.
Dosis cafe, centrally located in Roma Norte, has a pleasant ambiance in a big single-room lounge flooded with light. Good coffee, espresso or brewed.
Cute and contemporary. Coffee from small producer in Vera Cruz. Sit down or take it to go from both Cuauhtémoc and Condesa locations. Espresso or brewed. Take your pick. Limited food items. Pan dulce and a few sandwiches. Our favorite quick-fix café in Cuauhtémoc.
In Juárez, adjoining a shared workplace / virtual office called Espacio Naua, is a small café with minimalist decor producing cupfuls of Buna blend coffee in a comfortable environment. We alternate our attempts at satisfying our caffeine urges between Naua and Ojo de Agua a couple of blocks away.
Quintonil uses indigenous ingredients in unique ways to create what we call Mexican gourmet cuisine. Great ambiance, service and execution.
Fancy enough to rank as a formal dining. Casual enough to make you feel comfortable. Flawless execution and service. Traditional gourmet technique with the slightest dash of Mexican influence utilizing local ingredients. A bit pricey but nothing to balk at. A Top-5 in CDMX.
Amaya is a more casual version of chef Jair Tellez’s Meretoro in Condesa. Ambiance is pleasant. Service was good. But unlike the flawless execution on our recent visit to Merotoro, there were multiple errors in execution on the entree course we were served at Amaya.
Gourmet market with restaurant serving unique breakfast items, sandwiches, salads, finger foods, entrees, pastries and desserts, all at reasonable prices. Unique gourmet menu in a casual setting. Highly recommended any time of the day.
A menu developed by famed Spanish chef José Andrés. A unique and quirky, but sophisticated, decor. J by José Andrés has it all. Try the faux Spanish olives or the deconstructed Spanish omelet. Or any of the more traditional Spanish dishes raised to gourmet status by this talented kitchen.
Beautifully designed and decorated. Outstanding service. Japanese cuisine elevated to gourmet status by famed chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Sea Bass in Dry Miso was outstanding. Sashima was less impressive.
Garden setting. Very unique. Fabulous food and very reasonable prices. Can’t say enough good about this place. This is a hidden gem. Do not miss it. Great for lunch or dinner.
A lip-smacking, mouth-watering delicious, sandwich. Hands down, our favorite in all of Mexico City.
A first-rate little restaurant with heart, soul, and good food specializing in food accompanied by raclette, a melted Swiss cheese. Chilaquiles with eggs and molletes for breakfast, sandwiches and salads.
I’m not sure I can even say I’ve really ever had great Italian food. Perhaps until tonight. I wasn’t in Brooklyn, New York. Nor in Milan. Oddly enough, the best Italian food I’ve had in my rather storied life is in Mexico City.
The decor is not quite right, but not as gaudy as Dulce Patria. Service staff seemed a bit confused and flustered. That didn’t really affect service after the first course however. The food was surprisingly good.
Despite the very average meal and the gaudy décor, the service was very good. The prices were reasonable. As harsh as this review sounds, the restaurant is not sub-par. It’s just nothing special, despite what you would read online, in newspapers, and magazines.
It’s as cute as a button inside. Has a few tables out on the sidewalk to enjoy that beautiful Mexico City weather. They do the coffee right. 100% Oaxocan beans, with a mild roast but plenty of rich of flavor.
Not as trendy and hip as nearby Hey! Brew Bar. Variety of coffee blends. Informative staff. Good venue for coffee aficionados and coffee novices alike. They provide extensive information about the coffee you’re ordering and a handy little chart to help those that are neither baristas nor coffee aficionados figure out what the difference is between a macchiato, a cappuccino and a latte.
Maison Kayser, the international French Bakery and Restaurant chain, serves a wide variety of menu items including many breakfast items, sandwiches, crepes and French classics for lunch and dinner like Coq au Vin and Beef Bourguignon. Wanting something other than chilaquiles or huevos Rancheros for breakfast. It’s your lucky day.
Cáfe that only sells coffee in paper cups. But they have 12 varieties of coffee using beans from all over the world. Ambiance and service are lacking.
Highly praised restaurant in Polanco offering eclectic gourmet cuisine with Basque influence. A la carte menu or seven course tasting menu for about US$60. A disappointment. One dish was nearly inedible. Monotonous decor and overpriced. We added this one to our list of most overrated restaurants in Mexico City.
Elegant décor and near flawless execution of a sophisticated menu utilizing unique locale ingredients. Raíz earns one of the highest overall scores yet in our assessment of Latin American restaurants, exceeding nearby notorious restaurant, Pujol, in our assessement.
A comfortable ambiance, good service, and a creative menu put Carlota at the top of the list for upscale casual dining.
Fonda Fina is comfy and cool. Nice enough for a special occasion. Casual enough for just any old time. A gourmet touch to traditional Mexican cuisine.
Gourmet quality food in a casual setting. Always busy and buzzing. Almost as good for people watching as it is for dining.
Not flashy. Not trendy. Just well executed and creative Mexican food at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Consistent quality and service make El Cardenal the place you “go back to” in Mexico City.
No need to spill that street taco on your Gucci loafers. Take it indoors to a fast casual dining room setting. Tacos, hauraches and other Mexican street fare with a variety of fresh condiments to pile on top. A meal for under US$5. A super value.
Fresh, local and unique ingredients, a fusion of Italian and Mexican influence, prepared and served in an an unassuming restaurant, is the calling card of Chef Elena Regadas. Don’t let the humble surroundings deceive you. Rosetta is top of the list for lunch or dinner in Mexico City’s Roma Norte.
Rio Lerma in Cuauhtémoc has no shortage of restaurants. Some are chain restaurants like Fiebra de Malta and others are your typical, “I’ve got a recipe, I think I’ll open a restaurant” sort of establishment. Some good. Some bad.
Modern but warm and inviting ambiance. Great execution of modern Mexican fusion. First class service. One of Coma Beba’s Top 5 in Mexico City.
