Ambiance great, welcome great and wait staff amazing. Were very lucky to get a table due to a cancellation. Our friend telephoned every day for 3 weeks before he got reservation. Taster menu was fantastic - would personally recommend vegetable mole, lamb tacos and sea bass which was "catch of the day". The street food starters were really tasty as... More

We came here on a 30th anniversary trip to Mexico City, and were attracted by the reviews. Foodies will love this place. It is a bit pricey, and almost worth it. We had the 6 course tasting menu. The first course consisted of 5 small appetizers - each just a taste, and all wonderful. I especially liked the squash soup... More

If you are looking at Pujol reviews, and still on the fence, you probably know it is widely regarded as one of the best restaurants in the world. So your main question is likely, Does Pujol live up to its reputation? Is it truly as great as everyone says? Yes. The food is unreal. Just go. You won't be sad... More

I came to Mexico City to eat, and was drawn here partly because of the amazing things I had heard about Pujol (Chef's Table, Bizarre Foods, Outside Magazine, etc. etc. etc.). After undergoing the (oft-mentioned) arduous experience of trying to get a reservation, I was finally successful in securing a reservation for my final night in the City. I'm now... More

After seeing a glowing portrait of Mexico City Chef Enrique Olvera of Pujol on NetFlix Chef's Table, we made a trip specifically to eat at his restaurant. While there were flashes of the brilliance during our three hour prix fixe meal, there were also extensive stretches of uninspired cooking which raised questions in our mind about his commitment to Pujol....

My favorites: Tostada de Langosta: avant-garde Mexican interpretation of a Lobster Cocktail Sea bass with potato and Lime mayonnaise Fish and flavors were perfect Mole Madrid, mole nuevo: Two sauces one being the old style, the other the...

Had a very pleasant dinner with my wife, the food was incredible and the ambiance is great. Prices for the food for locals I am assuming is high, but for a foreigner visiting from the US for that quality food was relatively low (about 200-250$ for both of us with drinks and 10-12 dishes) Was not easy to get a...

Our visit was to celebrate a friend's birthday and securing a reservation was an arduous email and phone call process over a period of six weeks when we were put off etc. etc. When the reservation finally materialized, just a few days of the date we had requested, it arrived with warnings of penalties of US$50 for each person who...

It was my first experience eating at a 3-Star restaurant and I was slightly disappointed. The food was very good BUT not excellent however I would put this down to my not having a sophisticated palette and therefor will not comment on this further. The service however was a little disappointing. The staff were bordering on rude at some points... More
