Description: At El Bajío we try to make art and culture being noticed and enjoyed by eating the magnificence of traditional Mexican cuisine. We provide a space in which the most diverse dishes of the traditional Mexican cuisine coexist, starting with the delicacies of Carmen "Titita’s" homeland of Veracruz such as the anise gorditas, the filet of fish Veracruz-style and the papantecos tamales, as well as typical dishes of northern Mexico, including the pride of the house: carnitas Michoacán-style, as well as other delicacies from Yucatán, Puebla and Oaxaca, to mention a few others.

Went there for a quick and late business lunch, an authentic Mexican experience without the Mariachi. :-)
Excellent tacos, wonderful service, always available but not stressful.
The kind of place in which I will come back again. Seriously advised either for the business traveler and for the tourist.

Lunch for two people, no wine, about 600MXN

We ate their 3 times within our 6 day trip, it was so good. Great carnitas, mole, and amazing service.

The worst and most expensive food I have got during a weeklong trip to Mexico. Food was very bland, we ordered lamb barbacoa and duck leg in mole sauce and were served three minutes afterwards - apparently it was pre-cooked and reheated. The lamb did not taste like lamb and duck did not taste like duck - both meats had the same unrecognizable bland taste of a bad chain restaurant food. What a disappointment! Don't ever go there if you consider yourself a foodie.

Later on on this trip we had lamb barbacoa at a market stall in Tlacolula - what a difference! Four times taste at one quarter of the price.

Service was OK, although I did not like the manner in which our young waiter was aggressively soliciting tips.

Delicious food, the kind of place you can have many unforgettable meals at, each different. Also very comfortable for a solo woman traveller. Cosy, attentive without being overbearing. And amazing food from so many regions in Mexico. Very delicious, pleasing to the eyes and comfortable to be in.

This place is great. The last place I wanted to eat at while visiting Mexico for the first time was a chain, but after a very lengthy trip to Mexico City, I only had the strength to eat at El Bajio, located off the lobby of the Sheraton Santa Fe.

I am extremely happy that I made this decision. Despite being a small chain of restaurants in Mexico City, the food was quite good. There is nothing pretentious or elevated at this restaurant. El Bajio serves perfectly executed traditional Mexican cuisine.

The menu tells you what to order... their famous barbacoa, arrachera and carnitas. Even the dessert (not traditional Mexican) and coffee was quite good.

The atmosphere is nothing special. It is not well-decorated nor is it poorly decorated. Everything just fine.

As with the atmosphere, the service is nothing spectacular nor is there anything wrong with it. It's just not a high-end restaurant.

Go to El Bajio for no-risk, excellently executed traditional Mexican food.
