¡La comida es deliciosa! Entiendo el tema de comercio justo, pero al final, sí creo que las porciones son pequeñas en relación con el precio. Es tan rico que uno quiere más. Lo mejor es que dije que iba por cumpleaños y nos regalaron una tarta de mandarina exquisita, como todo lo demás. La verdad es que vale la pena 100%

El menú degustación es una buena ocasión de descubrir la cocina del Chef que es muy original. Desgraciadamente la falta de luz hace que el lugar es muy oscuro y hace falta usar el iPhone para mirar al menú !

Refined, subtle yet distinctive flavors on every dish. For a guest visiting from out of the country, quite amazing value too! Service is polite, quick to respond yet not intrusive. A wonderful meal and a lovely experience in CDMX.

Easily one of the best meals I've ever had. The menu was incredibly inventive and contemporary. We went all out and ordered kanpachi, squash blossoms with crab and uni, buttered spaghetti with caviar, Wagyu beef, dessert cheese plate, chocolate mouse, and creme brulee. We ordered too much food but it was glorious.

The service was great. The restaurant had great dinner ambiance and lighting. Music was very good too. Vibe wasn't overall formal, which we liked.

I was visiting CDMX for the first time, and Maximo Bistro was on my list of must-go restaurants. My friend & I shared a bunch of plates to taste as much as we could, and everything was delicious. I could have eaten the spread that came with our fresh bread with a spoon. The aguachile, stuffed squash blossoms (crab), and hamachi crudo were all fresh and fantastic, but the white green beans with parmesan were a standout. As flavorful as a traditional pasta dish, but so much lighter. Our server only spoke a bit of English, but enough that combined with my friend's limited Spanish, it wasn't a big problem. Would love to go back on a future visit to CDMX.

It is a great place, excellent cuisine with great flavours. Unfortunately we were a large group so we were not allowed to pick from the menu. We had to eat whatever the chef decided. Waiters were rude as well.

We had an excellent meal and a great time here on our first night in Mexico City. The service was and always is excellent. They were so accommodating when we were very late for our reservation because of terrible traffic. When we called to let them know, they were understanding and friendly (the opposite of what would happen at home at a restaurant in NYC).

Me gusto mucho la comida, la seleccion del chef de los platillos de degustacion muy buena!!! Los meseros no tenian tanto conocimiento de la preparacion e ingredientes de cada platillo que lo interesante de las comidas por tiempos es precisamente eso que el mesero te enamore del platillo antes de probarlo.

We were running a little late, but couldn't reach the restaurant to let them know, and then they canceled the reservation (traffic in Mexico City is bad, so plan ahead). After a short wait a table opened up and the food ended up being great. Good spot for a fancy dinner or date.

Conozco este restaurante desde hace años y ha venido cayendo en calidad pero esta ultima vez la comida estuvo MUY mala y el servicio mediocre. El gerente no es capaz de sonreír y es pesado. No vale la pena por el precio. No pienso regresar ni recomendarlo. Sino todo lo contrario. Lástima. Era de mis restaurantes preferidos.

I visit this restaurant every time I am in CDMX on business. This restaurant is the whole reason I started eating sashimi. The kampachi app here is simply amazing! This past visit I also had the lechón which was prepared perfectly. Paired both with a lovely Albariño by the glass. A perfect dinner!

La combinación de ingredientes locales, sabores y técnicas de preparación hacen de cada platillo de Máximo Bistrot, una experiencia gastronómica. Tengo siete años de frecuentar el lugar y siempre salgo gratamente sorprendida. El cálido y preparado equipo de meseros completan la experiencia.
Si lo que te gusta es comer bien, no estarás decepcionado.
Definitivamente lo considero el mejor restaurante de la Ciudad de México!
Reserva con anticipación, un lugar como éste resulta muy concurrido.
"Bonne dégustation"
