Maximo is absolutely the best!!! Apparently the chef used to work at Puyol and left to start MAXIMO. Well, I can definitely tell you that Maximo is a level above Puyol - although I do like Puyol a lot. Start with the Burata, try the...More

The Mushroom risotto takes 10' but was delish as was the Raviolo. The Filet and short ribs were melt in your mouth excellent. We had the Mil hojas for dessert and it was rather plain and uneventful after such a great and flavorful meal. The...More

The food was absolutely delicious, flavourful with multiple distinctive tastes in each bite. Stuffed zucchini blossoms were fried to perfection, and the risotto was perfect!

The food was excellent but the portions are VERY small for the price (one of the most expensive restaurants in mexico city). I wish they would at least adjust the portions a little because it's a bit of a shame in my opinion. The service...More

Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch
