“Good value for high end cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

Biko is Basque inspired molecular gastronomy from the Gaston & Aristide group. Less than full probably due to the massive road construction just meters from the door, the interior was serene with abundant people watching. But that doesn't mean the food doesn't command attention. First up was Foie Gras mousse--if that's not your thing please pass your plate to me. Next, Mussels with ground Chicharon--yes, it sounds like it came from a bad basket on Chopped, but the chef survived this round. I'd get hungry recounting it all but I'd go back in a heartbeat and view it as a steal at about USD $75 for a 10-course pre-fixe.

“Michelin-to-be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Food every bit as good as that from your average one-star in London. An exceptional Margarita, a great tasting menu for about £50 (US$80) and all of the expected Mexican ingredients you would want in a local restaurant. Worth that splurge...

“Excellent food but the service is not top quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We have eaten in Biko many times since their opening and even though it still is one great restaurant due to it's excellent cuisine, the service is currently not up to the standard expected from one of the best rated restaurants in the world. It is my impression that the cheff owners are not currently paying enough attention to the place.

“Extraordinary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

It is pricey but well worth it,
Everything is excellent, so it makes it difficult to choose,
The service is the absolute best.
It is an unfirgetable meal and experience hard to forget,
My opinion is that it is simply the best restaurant in Mexico CIty,

The meal was World Class. I could say the best food I've ever tried in any restaurant. The service was as good as the food. We also received personal attention from 2 of the 3 owner cheffs,Mikel and Bruno. Great overall experience, looking forward to come back soon.
