From the moment we sat down, we were pressured to order our food and not given a chance to explore the menu. While we were still eating our appetizers, they brought our entrees! Really? I asked the waiter what the rush was? My fish was over cooked, the shrimp and tuna were not exceptional. We were given, as sides, white rice and fried potatoes. I just can’t understand why people praise this restaurant. The menu is heavily in fish that is difficult to digest: shell fish, octopus , shrimp, and few choices in white flaky fish. This is not a gourmet fish restaurant.There are so many great, exceptional restaurants in Mexico I’d rather go to

It's the best seafood in Mexico City for reason. The focus is solely on bringing out the best flavors of what was caught that day.

Excellent food, excellent service, freshest fish and seafood. A must visit when in Mexcio City. Our servers included Jorge, who has been a part of the Contramar family over 19 years.

We didn't love our time at Contramar. It was extremely noisy (we went on a thursday night) and very touristy. Just wasn't a good vibe, plenty of restaurants in mexico city that's better. I've heard that it wasn't like this a few years ago. Unfortunate because the food is delicious.

After watching the Netflix special and knowing of my upcoming business trip I took it upon myself to make reservations two weeks before our arrival. The food was absolutely delicious. Our waiter and his assistant were very attentive and made great recommendations. I will definitely eat there in my business trip in the future.

This was maybe the best fish I’ve ever had! I got the house special grilled fish, and I don’t know why anyone would get anything else! We had tuna and octopus tostadas to start, and it was great having one of each. The cocktails were amazing, and the service was warm and attentive. It is a beautiful space, but rather big and open, so probably not the right choice for a cozy and romantic meal. So do that somewhere else, and come to Contramar for the energy and, of course, the grilled fish!

Very overrated restaurant. Most of our dishes were over cooked. More of a place to be seen than good food. Great service. Mussels were not edible. Tuna pastor dry. Very disappointing.

Delicious, fresh food at a reasonable price (especially if you're from the US), amazing service that was friendly and prompt, with a great sense of humor to boot. Restaurant was packed even for an early reservation on a Wednesday, so be prepared for crowds/some amount of noise, as the dining room is very open.

Did not live up to its hype. The service was quite good. But the food was disappointing. The tacos "al pastor" made with tuna, were salty but otherwise flavorless. The fettucine pomodoro was eztremely overcooked pasta in what tasted like a canned tomato sauce. It was chef-boy-ar-dee for adults. Somone suggested maybe pasta should not be ordered at a fresh seafood place. Thats jive. If its on the menu it should be good. Nothing we had was outstanding enough to support the buzz about the place. Sorry chef.
