Great place for an early lunch - beat the afternoon rush. Go with the al pastor fish tacos and atún tostadas.

Very enjoyable experience for date night. They were very accommodating with changing my reservation because I was sick. Very profesional servers that are prompt with great recommendations in English and Spanish. We started off with huge delicious shrimp cocktail that were to good I couldn’t take a picture. For dinner we ordered their popular contramar fish brushed with a green sauce and red sauce that was French served by the server. Unfortunately we did not have room for dessert but are looking forward to it next time!!!!!

I'd recommend if you're into established white-tablecloth experiences. Service was excellent, and people watching was good, but we we're disappointed with our order for the price. We'll research and order better next time!

I don't like to be rushed at dinner - especially at a nice restaurant. The food was pretty good but the service was terrible. With all of the amazing restaurants to choose from in Mexico City you'd be wise to choose to spend your money elsewhere

Tenía muchas expectativas pues siempre está lleno. Sin embargo la comida fue ordinaria y nada sorprendente. Lo que me molestó, es que los meseros te están apresurando( por ejemplo me dejaron el plato de sopa sin haber terminado la entrada). Puedo decir que los mariscos son frescos.

Incredibly attentive staff that is welcoming and patient. Suggestive but not pushy and we never felt rushed. The restaurant is large and airy - full of both locals and tourists. It’s a lively spot to have lunch and I highly recommend visiting. I will definitely be coming back to try more of the menu.

It's a Mexico City classic - and the food is definitely good, but they continue to raise their prices and I don't think it's very good value for what it is. If you're visiting it's somewhere to say you've been, but living in Mexico City, there are so many other options.

A decent dining experience. Food was fresh and flavorful but not as amazing as I thought it was going to be from the reviews. Atmosphere was pleasant with nothing special or fancy about the tables, silverware or choice of plates. Wait staff were efficient, responsive and pleasant but not exceptional. Overall, I would grade our dining a solid B.

What a fantastic experience. The food was incredible and the service was phenomenal.
Made two reservations one for 4 and one for 5 for my group of 9. Once we got there they brought out a table to fit all 9 of us comfortably.
The most fresh and delicious seafood I've had! I know I have to come back to this restaurant when I go to Mexico city again.

I've eaten there many times, and I except for the tostadas de atún I didn't love my orders this time... Also, we were being super rushed. They placed my friend's main dish down while she was half-way through her appetizer. But it was very good, as always.

Contramar was a must during our eight-day
Mexico City holiday. It lived up to its reputation.
Simple as pasta can be, ours with clam sauce was the best pasta dish ever. We’d love it if Contramar would open in. NYC.
Muchas gracias!

My daughter and I were "herded" in (we had reservations). We talked to the manager (Zion Spanish) because the smoke alarm was emitting a beep every few minutes. As my daughter was in mid-sentence, he turned his back on us and walked away. The food was bland and unmemorable. Our of all of our meals in Mexico City, Contramar was our one disappointment.
