Everything was over the top deelish. And great value too! Loved it
My daughter and I were "herded" in (we had reservations). We talked to the manager (Zion Spanish) because the smoke alarm was emitting a beep every few minutes. As my daughter was in mid-sentence, he turned his back on us and walked away. The food was bland and unmemorable. Our of all of our meals in Mexico City, Contramar was our one disappointment.
Really good local food
Super fresh and tasty
Really enjoy it
Beyond amazing. Get the whole fish. One of the best meals we had in Mexico City, and likely one of the best meals I have had ever.
Tuna and uni tostadas! Busy restaurant, excellent service, found out there a sister restaurant in Polanco.
La calidad de los alimentos y del servicio son excelentes siempre que vamos a Contramar. Las mesas están muy pegadas pero en general es un ambiente muy agradable. Altamente recomendado.
The food is some of the best we’ve ever had. Love the grilled shrimp, red clam ceviche
Amazing food. Wonderful service comfortable room. Every dish was superb.
Outstanding. Could not have fresher or more varied seafood choices. Staff lovely and attentive
Once again, Contramar does not disappoint! From start to finish - ambience, service, price and quality, it can’t be beat. If you are planning a trip to Mexico City, Contramar should be on the top of your list.
Had a fantastic lunch at Contrimar. The service is exceptional and the food is some of the best in town. The clientele are sophisticated and seemed to be dining for special occasions, business, or just casual lunch. Would return next time in CDMX. Look out for the whole fish a là Contrimar.
Imprcable servicio, calidad de la comida y ambiente. La comida estuvo impresionante, así como las recomendaciones de Jonathan, quien no erró en darnos ideas sobre qué pedir.
This is our 2nd time.
A very busy restaurant.
No problem being seated at our reservation time.
The staff are very courteous, attentive and helpful.
The food as before was delicious.
We will be back.
This was my favorite meal in CDMX, hands-down. My favorite dish: the scallop aguachile.
Delicious. Delicious. Delicious. Excellent service and very moderately priced. Loved my lunch! Still think of their tuna tostadas. YUM!
Fabulous restaurant! Attentive and friendly staff, delicious and varied food and menu, warm and jovial atmosphere. We had an awesome time!
Good quality seafood, attentive service. Staff was able to converse in both English and Spanish.
Greeted and seated promptly.
Felt a bit rushed.
Top marks for the margarita.
Best seafood restaurant in the world. If you can only order two items, order the tostada de atún and the merengue con fresa. But don't just order two items. Come with a friend (or three) and share as many dishes as you can, then cap it off with a carajillo. Then you'll wonder why you'd ever leave Mexico City.
Perfect place: wonderful seafood and fantastic if loud atmosphere. Our server Jonathan was excellent, spoke perfect English and was extremely attentive. Peacado a la talla Contramar is phenomenal and I can’t imagine coming here without ordering it. I also highly recommend the btg sake which was a lovely surprise. Completely worth the money, would return anytime in the city, a must visit in CDMX.
Horrible, la comida es miniatura y sin sabor, precios muy elevados.
Was recommended by a number of people and exceeded all expectations. Our waiter was delightful and so helpful. Don’t look past the Tuna Tostados - delicious. Never one to go to a restaurant twice but trying to fit it in again during our one week in CDMX. Eat here, you will not regret it.
Amazing Food, really great option if you want great quality seafood. Tuna Tostada and the Contramar fish are divine.
This was one of my best meals in recent months. The service was attentive--in fact, impeccable. I can highly recommend the sunfish salad, which was not only delicious, but there was so much food it was like an entree itself! I also ordered the house special, the grilled comber, which came with two kinds of sauce--parsley, and chili. It was beautifully presented, tender, and once again, more than enough food. My only thought was that the menu could offer more vegetable accompaniments. Overall, a wonderful meal!
Fresh and delicious food . Amazing tuna tostadas
Our evening at Contramar was exceptional until about 2/3 of the way through. The menu is wonderful, the food is exceptional, and the service was outstanding, until suddenly, right behind us, several of the wait staff began putting all of the liquor bottles that were behind and on the bar into large garbage cans. We were totally confused about what was going on, and eventually asked. We were told that they were preparing for a carpenter to come later that evening to do some repair work on the bar. We tried to ignore what was going on, but since it was right behind our table, and continued on throughout the rest of our meal (after the bottles, came the glasses, chairs, etc.), it was impossible. By this time, our otherwise incredibly attentive waiter was no where to be seen. Eventually we spotted him eating his dinner in the kitchen. The change from the truly delightful service we had enjoyed up until that point was extremely unpleasant, and the disruption of the sudden onslaught of workers clearing out the area right behind us, led us to ask to be moved to another part of the restaurant, which by that time was almost empty. Though seemingly surprised by our request, we were accommodated. We finished our meal, and other than removing the brownie from the bill, and our waiter apologizing, no other attempt at redeeming what would have been a perfect evening was made. Contramar should have handled this situation totally differently than the shockingly insensitive and unprofessional way in which they did.
Great food and atmosphere
The dishes we ordered all looked great, including the red and green snapper. The fish was cooked perfectly, but we were slightly surprised by the lack of flavor provided by the red and green sauces.
The Seafood is amazing here. Loved the Tacos al Atun and the grilled fish with my favorite with the chipotle rub. Everything we ordered was amazing and it came out very fast.
Wonderful meal- everything was delicious, varied (if you like fish!) beautiful and the staff was very classy.
El lugar es bastante concurrido, siempre está lleno y hay lista de espera, todo gracias a su muy buena comida y excelente servicio.
Our best meal in Mexico City! The service was impeccable. The food was beyond delicious. All suggestions by the wait staff were fantastic.
Contramar has quickly become one of my must-eat locations when I visit Mexico City. Their tuna tostada is on my list of best food I've ever eaten. The first time I came, I just told the waiter to bring me the best food they have. I didn't even look at a menu, and he certainly delivered. The cocktails were perfect, and the service was outstanding. Their pastor taco was nice, but the seafood is really where they shine. Order just about anything with tuna or octopus, and you can't go wrong.
A must go if you are visiting CDMX
La calidad de la comida y la atención del personal no deja nada que desear
Todo lo que ordenamos muy bien preparado, con muy buen sazón y porciones normales, él servicio de primera rápido, atento y amable, lo único es que siempre está lleno lo que da una sensación de estar apretado y algo ruidos.
Great dining experience! Made reservations through Open Table and although the restaurant was full we were seated immediately. The server was friendly and helpful. We share an appetizer and the entree and both were delicious.
We always love to stop at Contramar when visiting D.F. Delicious food with great people.
