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.

I just had a piece of grilled dorado, a glass of wine, and some flan. The food was nothing remarkable, but the place was clean and the service was good. There was a table of incredibly loud drunks the night I ate there, but even the waiter agreed that they'd had a little too much.

This place has a nice patio with ok food and good service. The Hostess had attitude when we spoke English to her but one of the servers stepped in as soon as he noticed that she was giving us attitude. He ended up serving us and was nice and let us know about the specials.

I was always attracted by this restaurant in the Roma area. However, was reluctant to enter since I am not much into restaurants that have several branches across town with the fear that they loose the touch e.g. Primos has "siblings" which share the same type of food and spirit. However, I had a fantastic meal! I started up with a tomato and cheese salad which was quite tasty, kind of a mexican caprese salad version, followed by some "pinchos" of Spanish ham and a tuna tartare. Do not expect fancy dishes but rather simple but great food!

We went for dinner with my wife's cousins, because we thought the name was cute. Huge mistake, food was not terrible, but just so bland and tasteless that just isn't worth it. We ordered a cucumber martini and we got half a cucumber put through a blender with some vodka, huevos roots, fried eggs sunny side up on French fries with Serrano ham were watery, and it was the best plate! Service was good, to be honest, they were all attentive and compliant, but it just wasn't enough to salvage the night. You're better off avoiding it if you like food.
