Description: El bistro francés se tropicaliza en esta esquina de la Condesa. La torta ahogada de pato y el steak con papas a la francesa de Primos son ya un clásico. Es el auténtico restaurante de barrio con una clientela fiel y ambiente relajado.A decir del chef Roberto Craig, luego de estudiar Administración en México y cocina en Barcelona, abrió en esta ciudad, en 2007 junto con Federico Rigoletti, el restaurante Primos, donde sirven cocina internacional, definida por sus creadores como "cocina de barrio".El negocio empezó muy bien; poco a poco fue teniendo más seguidores en la esquina de Mazatlán y Michoacán, Primos empezó con un menú sencillo y novedoso que incluía tapas, sándwiches y crostinis, además de ensaladas, hamburguesas y otros platos que se complementaron con un surtido bar y una buena oferta de vinos a precios razonables.

“Avoid this place!”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

I went to this restaurant last week, although the food is ok it became a terrible experience.
The valet parking charges you a hefty fee and when I refused to tip the guy he scrachted my car with a key! The day after I called the manager dor them to take responsibility and he said they would however, from that day on he simply hide.
This is one of those places in which they make you that you as a customer are just an annoying source of money. Just avoid this place.

“I enjoy the casual environment...”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

This is a nice place to go on on a Saturday afternoon. I like the serrano-aspargus salad, ham-cheese quiche and the hot-dog. Service is good and they have a vallet service. Overall, price is fair. I'd recommend it to people who wanna enjoy a casual meal out.

“Expensive”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

The ratio between what you pay and the quality of the food is too big... Avoid this place, don't fall for the cute sidewalk tables...

“Bad place for a meal”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

I have been here several times in the last two years, and everytime I leave I swear it is the last time ever return.. well today it is the last time I ever go here. The food is ok, grossly overpriced, the service inside the restaurant is whatever, and my experience with their valet was horrific! They are corrupt, lazy, and void of any ethics! Just a VERY Bad place to go enjoy a meal! Avoid!

“Over priced, bad & corrupt valet service”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

I have gone here several times, and everytime I go I tell myself it is the last time I ever go ... well this time it is it. The food is ok and well over priced. The service in the restaurant is ok, nothing noteworthy; BUT the valet service is bad! They try to swinddle you out of washing, waxing or fixing items on your car but use strange street cleaners of questionable ethics. Just a bad place to enjoy a meal.
