A word from Paxia - Daniel Ovadia
Con una visión contemporánea, cuidada y orgullosa buscamos enaltecer la cocina mexicana, esforzándonos por lograr experiencias integrales de alto nivel y plenamente gustosas. Creemos en la cocina mexicana y queremos representar lo mejor de ella en el mundo, siempre pensando en dar algo más y en estar en un nivel superior a lo común, con arrojo, respeto y rebasando expectativas.
Gozamos trabajar cada día con la idea de ser diferentes y mejores, de llevar a nuestro comensal a relajarse y convivir con sus platillos, de honorar la cultura gastronómica de México ofreciendo tacos y aguas frescas en un restaurante de manteles largos. Nos atrevemos a romper paradigmas, nos adelantamos, nos copian, queremos establecer parámetros, imponer gustos y tendencias. Ésta es Nuestra Cocina Mexicana.

    The service is excelent and the place is nice, but they really need to improve their recipes. Of the 4 dishes me and my friend shared, the ceviche was terrible I only had one bite. The fideo seco was ok, the fish in green chili sauce was so hot that I couldn´t eat it all. The only dish which was really delicious was the amaranto shrimps with tamarindo sauce =)

    Un restaurante "al ojo del amo", atendido por sus dueños, en especial el anfitrión Jean Marco, lo que le da un toque único y un servicio de excelencia. No se pierdan los tallarines con salsa de aguacate. (No está en la carta, pero digan que se lo preparen).

    It is unusual for a restaurant in Mexico City to "take risks" and reinterpret Mexican cuisine in a modern way. That is exactly what Paxia owners have done, in a space that used to house a well-respected traditional Mexican restaurant previously. The courage and good taste should be recognized. The wine list, including mezcal & tequila is very decent; and the flavored water drinks are amazing. I would recommend this place in a second.

    This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Mexico City, Paxia is specialized in Oxaca's cousine with an author's touch(Oaxaca is a Mexican State at the south of the country), they have the best "Mezcal" (Mezacl is similar to tequila but made from the maguey which is a different cactus and is from Oaxaca).variety available in the country. The service is amazing and all the people from other contries love it. This is a very nice restaurant with an excellent service and food. When in Mexico City you should deffinitively try!

    Excellent food!, a lot of options from appetizers to main dish, excellent blend of traditional dishes with new cuisine. You must try the Gusanos de maguey and escamoles, both were delicious. Only little problem: There was no water in the restrooms, it is sincerely unacceptable for this type of fancy restaurant.

    Food is very good but a tat inconsistent. I've been a few times, and most of the times the food has been remarkable, but the last time it was not outstanding.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/30/2009
    Food was not properly seasoned. Extremely salty dishes were sent back, never got a replacement and were still charged for. Cocktails were not very appealing, anything with an "espuma" was soggy or the espuma just didn't even make it to the table. Too bad, we were really looking forward to this meal.

    Este es un buen concepto de restaurante con comida mexicana fusión, un agradable ambiente y un servicio mas que aceptable, los precios son razonables y la experiencia general es grata. Algunos platillos son algo pesados para cenar por lo que la opción de ir a este restaurante a medio día sería mejor.

    -If you want to try mexican cuisine and look for something different (haute- cuisine) Paixa is a nice place to go. Located in the South part of the City is a different place to go.
