No había lechón y fue una gran lastima. Hay mucho eco adentro del restaurante y unos de la mesa junto reían y hablaban muy fuerte provocando que no pudiéramos hablar muy bien.

Servicio muy acelerado y no nos sentimos exclusivos.

Pedimos bastante variado y estuvo muy rico.

No podía creer lo delicioso que estaba todo. Cada plato era la mejor versión que había probado. ¡El ceviche aquí es mejor que el ceviche que tuve en Perú el mes pasado! El pan Frances fue uno de los mejores postres también. No es tan mexicano pero la comida es increíble

Soy de provincia fui a Máximo hace como 4 años y esperaba una evolución, pero fue lo contrario.Los precios exagerados para los platos, nada extraordinario. El lugar tiene muy pocas comodidades. Eduardo ya no esta ahí de chef. Había leído que iban muchos extranjeros y es verdad, en resumen me decepcionó.

En general todo bien. El único comentario es que consideramos que el precio del menú degustación con maridaje es un poco elevado considerando los tiempos y la calidad de algunos de los vinos. Uno de ellos (Gamay) tenía problema de TCA, no debieron servirlo así.

Could not fault the food. Everything was absolutely outstanding. The only disappointing part was being sat outside where there were only empty tables after have a reservation locked in for several weeks. We had to wait 45 minutes for a table inside the restaurant. For a restaurant of this level, it should be expected that guests want to sit inside to soak in the atmosphere and not on an empty side walk.

I chose the tasting menu with wine pairing and I can’t recommend it enough. Every bite was exquisite. The service was excellent and the staff were very knowledgeable about each dish. I also loved that the wine pairing included some Mexican wines I might not otherwise have tried.

Flavour and fine dining in a relaxed setting

I had been wanting to visit Maximo Bistrot for a long time and finally got around to doing it. The restaurant is laid back and international with a mixed crowd of tourists and middle class Mexicans

I had the taster menu and it did not disappoint, it states 4 courses on the menu but you end up with 6-7 different plates. I actually thought the first dish, sashimi, was the most complex in terms of flavours as there were layers upon layers of flavour and it was an explosion of deliciousness in your mouth! All courses were delicious but I particularly enjoyed the duck with sweet potato and the sea bass with cabbage and green coconut mole.

The sweet courses were a little simple and unambitious - I felt that the chef could have introduced more texture and flavour combinations than the tried and tested. A pineapple sorbet and chocolate tart with Baileys ice cream lacked the elevation of ingredients that you expect of top class restaurants. That’s not to say they didn’t taste good.

This restaurant is expensive and for a decent bottle of wine shared (450$) and the taster menu (1300$) together you are looking at 2,000$ MX including tip.

Overall, it was a fantastic dining experience and I personally prefer a more relaxed, cool atmosphere to a stuffy, overattentive one so it worked well for us for a special meal.

We were hurried in and out of the restaurant in under 45 minutes for dinner. The service was nice and the food was pretty good (but not outstanding), but absolutely nothing memorable about the experience or ambiance. Not good value, particularly in Mexico City, where there are many other excellent fine dining options for the same price or less. It was recommended by friends who presumably had a much better time, so our experience may have been an outlier, but we wouldn’t come back here.
