Whether for lunch or dinner this place is amazing with a terrace that has a view to Lincoln Park in Polanco, one of the nicest areas in Mexico City. The soft shell tacos are unbelievable as well as the grilled octopus. Their Gin with berries is a great cocktail to relax while having an unbelievable dinner. And the best of... More

Incredible food and out of this world service, plus gorgeous decor. They really went out of their way to make it a special experience for my mom and I. Thank you to Ivan, Ismael, Javier, and all the staff. Recommendation: try the avocado wave and the Thai Bruja al Cedro.

My husband and I went for dinner last night. First the venue is quite something lots of restaurants along the street. We had to try the octopus which like everyone says is simply melt in your mouth. We also split the sea bass in a most wonderful sauce. Shared a bottle of wine and a cocktail each. Price was very... More

We had booked online at another nearby restaurant only to find in the afternoon that it was actually closed. Not happy, given that we had travelled from Australia and it was New Year’s Eve, Finding a nice place in Mexico City at such late notice was a challenge to say the least. This is where the lovely Francesca stepped in... More

I really don't think you can go wrong at Mar del Zur, an attractive restaurant with a good people-watching terrace, located in the beautiful Domit house in Polanco. The staff are very friendly and relaxed while not sacrificing efficiency and professionalism. They know and understand the menu and recommend with intelligence. After several visits it's hard to isolate a favourite... More

Amazingly fresh fish specialities. Super friendly staff that made my birthday celebration extra special as soon as they found out. We turned up there with no reservation but accommodated us with a really good table and helped with food recommendations.

Enrique helped us with efficiency and kindness, so excellent service, food was very good. I am not a personal fan of their music, to me it does not match the food, and I would recommend much better chairs, but this details were compensated by service and food Do give it a try!

If you want different and very good seafood. Rico made great suggestions and treated us very well. Apps and main courses were items you do not see at all other restaurants. Only complaint is that the neighbouring restaurant had their stereo too high.

Do yourselves a favor and request this waiter. Ricos suggestions were all spot on beginning with my martini based with passion fruit and a hint of Chile...could have ordered many of those... my husband has onion and garlic intolerance and again Ricos suggestions for him were perfect. The tuna paiko was one of the most unique dishes we have had... More
