This was a recomendation from my dauhter that I had neglected. It´s by the Lincoln Park in Polanco (a very nice area of Mexico City), very small, with indoor/outdoor tables. Most of the menu are French dishes, but not pretending a high-end cuisine. Nice ambiance, good service, good food and modest prices. They also have a more light menu for... More

We've been eating out a lot lately and this restaurant with its under the roof terrace and twinkling lights and candles was intimate and lively at the same time. The service was good.

Last time I stopped for a coffee and it was very bad. This time for diner was much better. The place is really nice, very cozy; what is really annoying is that even though you seat in the non-smoking area, you feel that you are in the smoking are, that's very unrespectful for the ones that don't want to smell...

The venue itself is very nice, the downside is it is rather small which in and of itself isn't a bad thing but they allow smoking on their patio and the smoke makes its way into the restaurant so that's not cool. I ordered breakfast which was tasty, but you'd think sitting so close to the kitchen my food would... More

I came here for breakfast because they open early (rare in Polanco) and it was already busy so I figured it must be good. I had one of their egg dishes, which was good but over-cooked. I actually prefer my eggs well done but they were dry and rubbery and left me wishing I had opted for some of the... More

It's hard to find good fine French dining in Mexico. Ivoire has great food, quality atmosphere and european sized servings. We loved it!!!

Let's say the place is cool, from there you will only pay a lot for a partial view of the park. The service is terrible and might say that the car wash guy can suggest better options and food. Talking about the food is basic stuff and awfully cooked, the got chocolate is a shame. Will never be back.

The place is beautiful and the food is awesome. Great variety of bread, I love the "chocolatín", a kind of pastry filled with chocolate. I had the Mediterranean eggs and the flavor is just perfect. Great variety of teas as well. The only thing I don't like in the terrace area is that there are a lot of beggars walking... More

We visited this restaurant on a busy Thursday evening - we were given a table which was tightly squeezed in which was fine as we had not made a reservation. The food was good (I had the crab cakes to start which were very nice but cannot recall my main) but we were not made to feel welcome at any... More
