Best food, outstanding service
Not sure about recommending this place.
The food was fresh and good— the service was so rushed that by 6:30PM, with a reservation at 6:oops we were, basically finished with our meal. There last reservation for a Tuesday is 6:30pm, guess the staff wanted to go home.
Extremely efficient and friendly service, but it’s intense and you feel a bit like you’re on an assembly line—like they’re just trying to turn over tables.
Amazingly attentive energetic service, spectacular and exciting food. A must do experience in Mexico City
This was by far one of my favorite restaurants in CDMX! My husband and I went for lunch and it was packed but not annoying. The food was so fresh and everything we ordered was very tasty. Loved the Tuna Tostadas and the house salsa that is served right when you arrive. The contramar ceviche was also amazing and the house speciality fish with adobo rub and parsley. I would totally recommend!
Our sever Edwin created an amazing experience for us. On point recommendations, humor and of course great service. Contramar is one of my favorite restaurants in the world!
Our favorite restaurant in Mexico City! In fact, we had to come back twice before we left! The service is impeccable, there is not a single complaint I could make regarding the staff. Everybody is so helpful, informed, and accommodating in every way possible. You feel as though you're a personal guest in their home. And the food is the best I've ever had. Between the two of us, we probably ordered between 5-7 dishes each time we went because everything on the menu is so amazing. There's not a single thing that I did not like or would not order again. Each experience was one-in-a-million and we will definitely return each time we visit Mexico City.
Al final despues de cobrar, siento que ya les urgia que desocupara la mesa, fue incomodo
Pues malo que acepten reservas de 6pm y cierren cocina a las 6:30
Amo el lugar, para mí es uno de los mejores restaurantes de México!
I had heard rave reviews so stopped for a quick lunch.
It was sublime! The fish was extremely fresh. The tuna tostadas tasted as if the tuna was sashimi quality. The sea scallops were equally as good. Probably would have ordered more for dinner.
Sat outside so it was not noisy. The whole restaurant was bustling and the service was excellent! Bravo!
Food was good, but the environment was so loud and fast paced that it was almost stressful. It was crazy how fast they wanted your order, brought your food and cleared everything! Everyone who worked there was sweating and just running around. The food however, was quite good.
It was an amazing experience! Everyone needs to give it a try!
Fun, happening spot. The trout tostada are over the top delicious.
I love this place! Greatest Seafood in the World!
Everything was amazing and delicious! Great service!
El servicio de Jorge y Mario espectacular!!!! Siempre pendientes y súper profesionales. El lugar súper lleno y la comida y bebidas salen súper rápido y todo muy bien presentado y excelente sabor!
Everything was extremely tasty and the staff was super friendly and attentive.
For all the hype as a Mexico City destination restaurant, this was sadly disappointing. We thought the Stone Crab dish used frozen fish, when it was represented as otherwise even though they brought samples to the table. The giant prawns and crab were served with a bland mayonnaise, and nothing else. The ahi tostada was tasty. Desserts were good. Other diner comments about rushed service were unfortunately true--you can be in and out well within an hour. That would be a good thing if it was a business lunch where food was not the focus. We followed the recommendations from our waiter. The upside is that we had more time to explore other venues.
Fastest dinner ever. But taste was perfect.
Carnitas de pescado and tuna tostada were amaze. Not so much the ceviche and octopus galleda
Súper !! Excelente servicio.
They serve the food far too quickly, and force you out of there as soon as they can. We had about 4 waiters try to take our plates away at the end, because they didn’t seem to want to let us stay to savour and enjoy. Food was good, but the experience was lacking, and quite frankly, we all felt a bit sick afterwards from being forced to eat so quickly.
Great restaurant with amazing food. I recommend getting a reservation if you're going Thursday-Sunday.
We ordered the tuna tostadas, the contramar fish, and dessert. The fish came with extremely soft and delicious corn tortillas, which REALLY complimented the fish. I was really sad that they ran out of the fig tart, but I tried the lemon brulee tart and that blew my mind too. I wish I had more time in CDMX to go back. Highly recommend.
A CDMX must!
Excelente comida. Un gran ambiente y buen servicio.
Love super love
Unfortunately I think this is one of the places where the hype is better than the experience. While an incredibly lively and fun environment, we thought the food was just okay, particularly for the pricing. The tuna tostada was excellent, but wasn't totally impressed by the pastas or shrimp soup that we had. I think perhaps if we had gone for a more seafood-based dish (i.e. whole fish) we might have been more wowed, but overall was more meh.
Amazing food. Staff pressure to eat and leave quickly combine with tight quarters and HIGH noise level reduce from 5 to 4 stars
Comida en ocasión de celebrar el cumpleaños de mi esposa, la atención extraordinaria desde que nos indican la mesa, la explicación del menú y de los especiales de la casa, servicio atento y rápido , y nos hace sentir sin presión y contentos, la comida exquisita, los precios razonables . Lo recomiendo para ir más veces aprovechando cualquier ocasión
The best overall dining experience in Mexico City so far. The staff is friendly, accommodating for those like myself with limited Spanish language. Every item we had was delicious. We immediately made another reservation after our first meal. It’s a very busy establishment. Reservations are highly recommended as the wait can be 3 or more hours. Despite how busy it always is, Contramar operates as a well oiled abs very efficient machine.
A lot of hype, so I had high expectations, but unfortunately not met. Tuna tostadas - good, fish ceviche special - passable, aguachile - bland (didn’t taste the seafood sweetness), whole grilled fish - executed well with flavourful sauces, fig tart - good, mezcal margarita - good. Our waiter was pretty transactional. Lots of staff running around made it a slightly stressful meal. Bill with a couple bottles of water came to $109 w/o tax or tip.
Loved our meal, dessert and wine. Cannot wait to go back.
Excelente! La comida lo mejor y el servicio siempre de 10
Great food and great service. I loved the desserts
I guess overrated is the best way to describe Contramar? We went at 6PM on a Tuesday, it wasn't busy. We tried a couple of sharing plates, the tuna tostadas that people rave about and some fish sopes. The tostadas were fine, nice fresh tuna with a little oil and parsley (if I remember right). Nothing mind blowing, very simple. The sopes were under seasoned, which for me is always a problem at normal run-of-the-mill restaurants with masa based dishes here in Mexico.
They rushed us through our meal, claiming the kitchen was closing at 7 (which it looked like it did). Our plan was to try the two plates and see if we were hungry and order more, but they were pushing us to order more before finishing the other plates, so we passed.
$62 for two small plates and two drinks. Definitely not worth it in experience or taste.
Everything about this place is great. Order the tostadas. Order the whole fish. Order the fig tart. Regret nothing!
Excelente comida, actitud y servicio! El mejor lugar.
