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

We ordered a cheese table and another starter for sharing which resulted convenient because the size of the portions. Later I tried a seafood risotto which... More

This place offers, once in a while some wine tasting dinners, with mexican wine houses. If you are into this kind of thing, i totally recommend it

I stop there for and espresso, which was very poorly made and the pastry was regular. The cappuccino of my girlfriend was very bad as well. The place is very nice.
