The restaurant has a nice garden in an ancient house in the south of the city. The information on the menu is interesting, but the food does not meet the standards of the descriptions on it. We were disappointed at the taste of the chosen dishes, expecting higher quality, according to pricing. The staff was very friendly, but service slow.

Went back after almost a year and the Maitre'd still recognised us ! Kudos as he sees hundreds per day! No changes to decor so still one of the most comfortable and pleasant settings. Menu hardly changed(a few new options would be good) but as well prepared and delightful as always.Service also excellent.

Had a wonderful lunch at Bistro 83. To begin we had warm Brie cheese as an appetizer. Followed by a squid risotto to die for and last a cajeta dessert. The service was excellent too.

I was there with my husband, we always ask for the artichokes, we love it. This time we try the onion soup, not super good, but was well. The view to the inner garden is nice.

We enjoyed sitting outside, under cover, (we visited during the rainy season) overlooking the garden. Very nice view, I enjoyed the beef tacos. The server was attentive and friendly.

Nice restaurant for couples or business meeting. A very nice view to an internal garden. They have a list of wines. Food delivery is a little bit slow so ask for an entree and enjoy the wine.

As mentioned, the food is awesome the tuna, carpaccio, octopus and rissotto are incredible. The place is awesome and the wine menu includes wide variety of wines specially Mexican from mid range and a bit higher. My downside was the service, awful slow, ask for three recommended beers and after 20 minutes they told us that they ran out of... More

Very nice trendy restaurant, located in one of the most picturesque zones of south Mexico City, in San Angel, a few steps away from Bazar Del Sabado. The architecture is quite nice and the place is cozy, it has two areas, one inside and one terrace where everyone wants to be. On the night we visited rain came down pouring,... More
