Maximo was awesome and I would go back on the next trip! Our wait was quoted 45 minutes and they brought us into the bar upstairs where we had a great cocktail and waited. Dinner was delicious, wine selections great, service perfect. We loved it. Thank you!

The soup special on the day of my lunch at Maximo Bistrot Local was so good that I will likely be talking about it for years to come. My girlfriend and I had heard that this was on the must-eat list for our trip to DF, and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is discreet and elegant, a cozy ground... More

I have dined at Maximo Bistro several times(3 or 4) in the last few years. My latest visit was in January, for lunch. In all cases, I was a solo diner. I have discovered, over my visits, that I have better luck with lunch - both in service and in availability of popular dishes. Like other reviewers, I have arrived... More

This is a repeat restaurant for us whenever we visit Mexico City. This time it was on Mother's Day in Mexico and even though the restaurant was full, the service was outstanding and the food great. The evening started with a complementary glass of wine for my wife and we had two appetizers and two main plates. Then we shared... More

Here was our (me and my wife) experience at Maximo Bistro. It was a chilly night in early January. We arrived at 8:00 with a reservation. There were no tables available inside; they led us outside without asking whether that was ok with us. Outside tables are covered by an awning which reaches the ground and reduces wind exposure; the... More

The food here is so good. Very high quality ingredients, good portion sizes, and unique recipes. Everything was so fresh - the asparagus was the best I've ever had in my life. The cocktails are also delicious and unique. Everything is cheap by European and American standards, but very very reasonable. We paid about 600 pesos per person including the... More

Food is of excellent quality. Prices are on the low spectrum, which is a boon. A little bit noisy at peak hours.

If I could describe this experience in one word, than I would say just: wow. Everything we ate was delicious: octopus ceviche, lamb, organic chicken... and the desserts also were perfect, especially relleno mascarpone. Also, since they heard it is my birthday, they sent me a special cake with a candle. That gesture just made the whole dinner perfect.
