the maddest sommelier/barman I’ve ever met – he’s definitely been on the Mezcal! The place is a speakeasy, 16 seat bar counter hidden in the back of another restaurant – the 9 course tasting menu showcases the best of modern Mexican cooking and is a lot of fun.

Modern Spanish/Basque dishes in this stylish Bistro in Polanco are certainly worth a visit for a relaxing dinner – service is great!

San Angel Inn

I’m always a sucker for ‘old school’ and this place is certainly that – The place is huge with over 400 seats and set in an old Hacienda, full of Mexico City’s old money with table side service, a mix of European and Mexican Classics and a dessert trolley the size of a double-decker bus.

Hartwood

Just amazing – the daily changing, market-fresh menu offers some of the best food I’ve eaten – the gambas with pineapple mole were outstanding and the desserts must be ordered – ideally as many as possible – super cool, hip atmosphere with staff that are passionate, knowledgeable and genuinely caring – a must visit!

Gitano

Beautiful people, great drinks, kick-ass play-list and the food is pretty good too! If in the mood you can continue the party in the Jungle Room.

El Moro

been around for ages, the churros are freshly cooked in front of you, coated in plan or cinnamon sugar and handed to you while still piping hot – grab a bag to take away and head to the local food market to see real Mexican street food.

Quintonil

Ranked the 11th best restaurant in the world in 2018 and with good reason. Situated right smack in the middle of Mexico City. They serve modern Mexican food using traditional ingredients. Mexican fine dining at it's best. I would highly recommend their tasting menu. Good service, great ambience and even better food.
