I had spotted Mexique years ago and finally had the occasion to go with my husband for our anniversary. It was a cold winter night and the restaurant had only a few tables with customers.
We had a ceviche and quesadilla negra as appetizers, then Mole verde (with monkfish) and Pato al tamarindo as main dishes. Everything was absolutely delicious, and also beautifully presented without being absurdly fancy. Service was impeccable and very friendly.
The restaurant may suffer from its location, away from trendy neighborhoods, but it is in our opinion a plus, people should check away from the crowded places where it is too often impossible to talk or listen to anyone, much less to savor really good dishes!
The decor is modern but with warm colors, very welcoming. Also, the music selection was of incredibly high quality (Yves Montand, Madeleine Peyroux...). We will come back!

Awesome ambiance. Carlos Gaytan knows how to develop great depth of flavors. Savory, spicy, sweet, all there without one ingredient overpowering the others. Prepare your palate for a very rewarding culinary experience. If you’re thinking about it, stop thinking and go. You will not be disappointed.

Mexique was WONDERFUL! We had a lovely time and the service was impeccable. The chef/owner was there greeting diners and was personally checking each dish as it left the kitchen window. I HIGHLY recommend Mexique...absolutely superb!
