One of my favorite places. I don't visit very often, but every time I come I find a new favorite plate for me. The ambience, the food, the service are just great... a perfect combination. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, Primos is a perfect fit.

I'm so glad my friend and I stumbled upon this restaurant...we were actually on our way to a different place. But the ambience and staff were so inviting, then the food and dining experience was great! Our server was delightful and helpful. I ordered the salmon and it was perfectly cooked.

We splurged on our last day in Mexico Their pastry is made fresh every day just for them so don't pass it up. Followed by a plate of fruit, all ripe and tasty with a side of cheese (cottage cheese) then eggs ranchero with a basket of bread and real butter and washed down with a late coffee. There are...

Will not return after being required to "register" my first and last names befor being seated" yes, I suppose you could give a fact name, but the whole idea is intrusive and the fact that they feel the need to register everyone for security purposes made me feel unsafe there. I also found the food disasspointing but that might be... More

Great service, and while the menu was somehow dirty and worn out, the kitchen delivered us great flavours and creations. Being at the colonia Condesa parking is ludicrous so you'd better leave it at the valet parking and ask for it 15 minutes before you leave.

We had coffee and cake on our first outing here. The dinner menu sounded interesting so we decided to come back the next night. It was a Sunday evening so was quite enough. Wait staff are very attentive - far away enough not to be in be way but within striking distance if needed. Starters and mains were very good.... More

I had been here before but I was not quite as impressed as I was this time. Great menu, not as extensive, but comprehensive. Exquisite alternatives. Not expensive considering the gourmet alternatives it offers. The environment, the details and the great service are the best pairings for good food. It is not very child friendly, unless your children are very... More

Primos serves a variety of excellent Mexican cuisine with some Mediterranean additions. Everything we tried there was excellent. Notably, the service was even better. We are going back this week to celebrate a birthday. Loved it!

Located in one of the nicest corners in Condesa neighborhood, this restaurant offers the simple menu off a Bistro (a mix of Spanish, French and Mexican cuisine), but with the quality service of a nice and proper restaurant. Great place for lunch or dinner, and great breakfasts too!

Description
El bistro francés se tropicaliza en esta esquina de la Condesa. La torta ahogada de pato y el steak con papas a la francesa de Primos son ya un clásico. Es el auténtico restaurante de barrio con una clientela fiel y ambiente relajado.A decir del chef Roberto Craig, luego de estudiar Administración en México y cocina en Barcelona, abrió en esta ciudad, en 2007 junto con Federico Rigoletti, el restaurante Primos, donde sirven cocina internacional, definida por sus creadores como "cocina de barrio".El negocio empezó muy bien; poco a poco fue teniendo más seguidores en la esquina de Mazatlán y Michoacán, Primos empezó con un menú sencillo y novedoso que incluía tapas, sándwiches y crostinis, además de ensaladas, hamburguesas y otros platos que se complementaron con un surtido bar y una buena oferta de vinos a precios razonables.
