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!

We went here for breakfast. All the dishes on the menu look delicious. Fantastic service. I didn't enjoy their hollandaise sauce, it was not creamy enough, felt too beated; but everything else was delicious.

I had breakfast in this restaurant, I think this is the first of the "family" brand of restaurants (Primos, Sobrinos, Tios, etc) and I usually go to Sobrinos but Im more of a breakfast person. And the food here was stunning. I shared a french toast which was very flavorful, with vanilla butter and red berries were delicious. The "Cafe... More

It is a simple but nice restaurant. First we were taken aback with a very short menu, there were only about 2 items on the menu that I was really interested in. We ordered steak with spiced butter and fries and it turned out to be just great! Wine was very good too and so was the service. At around... More

I just had a piece of grilled dorado, a glass of wine, and some flan. The food was nothing remarkable, but the place was clean and the service was good. There was a table of incredibly loud drunks the night I ate there, but even the waiter agreed that they'd had a little too much.

This place has a nice patio with ok food and good service. The Hostess had attitude when we spoke English to her but one of the servers stepped in as soon as he noticed that she was giving us attitude. He ended up serving us and was nice and let us know about the specials.

I was always attracted by this restaurant in the Roma area. However, was reluctant to enter since I am not much into restaurants that have several branches across town with the fear that they loose the touch e.g. Primos has "siblings" which share the same type of food and spirit. However, I had a fantastic meal! I started up with... More

We went for dinner with my wife's cousins, because we thought the name was cute. Huge mistake, food was not terrible, but just so bland and tasteless that just isn't worth it. We ordered a cucumber martini and we got half a cucumber put through a blender with some vodka, huevos roots, fried eggs sunny side up on French fries... More

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.
