“Lovely seafood with outdoor seating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Really tasty seafood in a great setting with nice outdoor seating area. The 'caldo' hot shrimp soup was very tasty as an appetizer, as was the fish balls in a mild curry sauce

“We joined the "fashionable" crowd for the freshest seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

We visited Contramar for lunch/comida, and thoroughly enjoyed the people-watching, as we sampled the freshest seafood carefully prepared in styles that are Mexican or European. We had our favorite again, a white fish which is filleted, and served with 1/2 red chipotle sauce, and 1/2 green parsley and garlic sauce. It is gorgeous, delicious and memorable! The menu is extensive, with a good wine list, and the atmosphere is electric with the white-jacketed wait-staff almost running with the food orders coming from the open kitchen.

“EXPERIENCE WHAT IT IS TO "LUNCH" IN MEXICO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

Mexicans are celebrated for their sprawling lunches. Sprawling in duration and attendance. There is nothing quite like the Mexican tradition of a four hour lunch with family and friends.

And, there is no better place to enjoy this rollicking time than at Contramar. Home to the best and most creative seafood in Mexico City, it is also host to the city's beautiful set. And, if you're a tourist, Contramar gives you a great window onto the lifestyle and energy of this bustling city.

But, everything fades away once you've experience the tuna tostada, the green and red whole fish and a sip of tequila with the sangria back. The flavors could not be more Mexican, fresher, simpler or more original. And, once you emerge from the haze of the exquisite culinary treat, you can reengage with the energy of the room and the sights of where Mexico is headed.

Run. Don't walk. And… if you're a smaller party, sitting outside is a treat, too!

“Best in Mexico City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

Absolutely loved this place. The food really is amazing, pricy but amazing. I can't wait to go back. The only negative aspect is that it is closed in the evenings!
