We were highly recommended to this restaurant and we had read a lot about the chef. The food was very disappointing. The white fish with green sauce was dry. The tuna loin was a good quality but preparation was ordinary. The cerviche was good but not nearly as good as in peru. There was not a lot of fish choices on the menu. Maybe this was good for mexico...but not for new york city, paris, or lima.

One of the most delightful restaurant experiences in a city full of great food! Everyone, including the staff, seems happy to be there. The food is so fresh and artfully prepared. We tried the ceviche of the day and one of the special salads with cucumbers and fava beans. The seasonings were perfectly balanced and unlike anything I would be able to prepare at home. I've had the grilled fish with red and green sauces before, and found it to be just as amazing as I remembered. We got the fig tart and my friend swore it was the best dessert she had ever tasted--crunchy crust, creamy custard and tangy fig, all perfectly complementing each other. We sampled several mescals with great guidance from our very personable waiter. An unforgettable meal!

It was a restaurant I had been wanting to try since seeing on Netflix. I ordered oysters, they were warm, so sent them back. I did not want to risk getting sick. The fish Contramar, was very well cooked and seasoned. The tuna sashimi was melt in your mouth good.

Contramar! Food was as always. The only thing that bothered me this time was that the waiter kept coming around waiting for us and made us feel rushed. Aside from that always a great meal.

The food at Contramar was amazing. We arrived 30 minutes early and they sat us immediately. The tuna tostadas were really good. The aguaschiles were amazing but they are spicy!

Always a fantastic experience at Contramar. The tuna tostada is a must, the ceviche is very good, grilled octopus is fantastic (order less than you think), and always end lunch with a carajillo

Eating lunch outside was very pleasant. Would not have wanted to be inside where it was crowded, warm, and noisy. Our service was perfunctory.

My wife and I ordered 3 different appetizers and split an entrée. We had tuna tostadas, crab tostadas, soft-shell crab tacos, and the restaurant specialty whole fish with half adobo / half parsley seasoning. Everything was delicious, but the tuna tostadas were HEAVENLY. They were without a doubt the best tuna we have ever eaten, and we have had some good tuna. The service of our waiter Juan Luis was exceptional, as was the rest of the wait staff. I asked him how he could sleep at night knowing he had ruined people for ever settling for less again. He said he could. We will definitely be back on future trips to Mexico City.

I had heard that Contramar was THE place to go in CMDX. Disappointed to say that it was actually the worst meal we had! Not to say that it was bad, but the other meals we had were so amazing. Contramar was okay, but wouldn't necessarily recommend as a place you have to check out

The food at Contramar was excellent. We had very good tuna tostados, the shrimp salad, and the whole fish. All was very good, particularly for a restaurant of the size and volume of this one. It is large, noisy and not the most relaxing environment. It is worth going to and experiencing.
