This little french place continues to have a great menu and very friendly service. It started very small many years ago but quality hasn't varied. Try the home made terrine.

I have lived years in Mexico city and each time I return to CDMX I love to have diner at Arlequin. Thomas the owner will welcome you, his staff is very courteous. The place has been recently remodeled and makes you feel comfortable. The wine list is decent and well priced. There is a menu du jour with the plats du jour, I like the terrine, the escargots, quenelles and the dessert menu is also very attractive I recently tried the clafoutis but you should also try the mousse au chocolat or the crème brûlée ! Bon appétit!

We have been going to"Arlequin" over the years. We like the unexpensive food, unpretentious and tasty, always regular in the quality, the ambiance is nice although a bit cold in the winter. We have tried more than once every dishes. The service is average, sometimes great sometimes very slow. The bread is excellent and they have an intersting choice of beer. The only default that I found in that restaurant is that the menu have stayed unchanged for at least 7 years... that is a shame! We would go more often otherwise but we grew tired over the years...

Lovely ambience with soft cool jazz and hipster dudes. Not a tourist restaurant. Had good French food.

Escargots, onion soup and a duck confit so delicious it would be praised at the top French restaurants of the city, at less than half the price.

The food is excellent, the prices are low and the ambient is relaxed. An excellent place, the only place, for a delicious and unpretentious french meal.
