“That's an excellent place to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

I've been to Au Pied de Cochon several times in 2011 including the New Year's Eve. I love this place and it's open 24h a day. The restaurant is very well decorated and service is great. They are very famous for serving delicious shellfish but I'm allergic to it so I never tried. My favorite dishes are: onion soup, tomato soup, cod fish and chocolate souffle.

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Not as good as the Paris one, is the top French restaurant in Mexico City. Great service with excellent food and and out-of-this-world wine list. Very professional personel will assist you on what to pick from their great menu. Mainly business men and politicians on weekdays, on weekends is more family-friendly, but I have gone several times with my 2 y.o. on any day and always felt welcome.
It is not a place for the budget traveller, but it worths every penny...
Don't miss the Onion Soup, Escargots, Fresh seafood and meats.

“Good gourmet option in Polanco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

Good French style restaurant in Mexico (Polanco), with an extremely attentive service and very good food. However, being in Mexico I do prefer Mexican food.
