Phenomenal setting, meal and service. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Mexico City.
Beware though - our drinks averaged over $30 per glass of wine which we felt was inexplicably excessive.
Absolutely amazing service, food and ambiance.
Excellent service! For two people, the cost was $6,000MXN including the tasting menu and 3 drinks per person and tip. Food was unique and yummy; drinks excellent. Dessert was amazing. I would definitely recommend visiting Pujol at least once!
Pujol is quite the experience. All of the dishes are sublime and the service and atmosphere are unparalleled. Be prepared to break out the checkbook, though! with minimal alcohol, the tab was $280 USD. Again, quite the experience.
Flew to Mexico City with the main purpose of dining at Pujol and another accomplaimed restaurant. The creative cuisine did not disappoint though we enjoyed the main entrees of the tasting menu the least. The stylish room was simply decorated. We balked at accepting a table in the corner in the back of the restaurant as one of us would have been facing two walls. Instead we were given a perfect table near the bar with a view of the entire restaurant. The friendly service was exceptional! We would definitely return if we are in Mexico City again!
La comida y los tiempos entre un plato y el siguiente, son los principales ingredientes de una gran experiencia! Muy caro, pero vale la pena.
Went for a lunch date, service was attentive and good overall. Ambiance was pleasant enough. The food is where the problem is. Street snacks appetizer was alright at best, the sea bass (I believe) course was excellent, my main course of lamb was tasteless and boring, my girlfriend had the fish as a main course and was equally unimpressed. Dessert was nice but nothing special. While priced to be a "value" compared to some other fine dining options, the resulting product detracts from any value you can derive from the lower price. I do not recommend Pujol.
This was a great experience, the food was excellent, but honestly we had equally good meals in Mexico City for less than 1/3 the price. For less than 100 US dollars, two people can eat royally at many places in this city, with inventive and exciting chefs. In short, I'm glad I did it, but wouldn't do it again.
Menu started out very strong with smoked baby corn and a perfect amuse bouche of corn cake. The following courses were good, but nothing too memorable until the mole with hoja santa tortillas - simultaneously simple and complex and really beautiful. Service was generally attentive, but once we received the mole course we did not get a description of the course from a server. Granted, we are English speakers and understand that getting a description in English is asking extra - but we were disappointed to not get more info on what seemed like the most special item on the menu. After this course, we loved the chinese pomegranate palate cleanser. We received an incorrect dessert and no apology for the mistake. Once we received the correct dessert we loved them - grilled pineapple and the avocado macadamia options. Service soured after the dessert and we waited close to half an hour to get the check.
A few gems throughout the evening, but not sure if I would come back.
Open Table needs to have 10 stars for this experience.
I had watched the Netflix Chefs Table episode about two years ago and added this to my bucket list. It was beyond my wildest dreams.
