We were introduced to this restaurant by some local friends. We arrived at about 6:30 PM which was closing time, but the waitstaff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. We had various tapas... sashimi and fish tacos and then a large grilled red snapper. Everything was prepared perfectly and then the desserts that followed were excellent as well.

We read about Contramar on foodie sites and Trip Advisor, but when a restaurateur friend told us it must be our top dining priority in Mexico City, we saddled up. Set in a lovely neighborhood, we walked there, and enjoyed every minute of it. The food (fresh fish), the scene, the service. They are not open for dinner, but we... More

We were so excited to try Contramar after all the great reviews. My husband and I went for lunch on Monday, thinking it wouldn't be too crowded and it wasn't - we got a small table outside on the sidewalk. Not a great spot, no sun and cramped but we were still excited. Our waiter took our drink menu and... More

We did not do any entree but ordered a bunch of appetizers. The mix tostada was our favorite. The ambience is good as well.

Getting a seat here is complicated, so a reservation is required to eat here, otherwise you may wait for a long, long time. We needed a table by 3:30pm and when I called, I was informed that there were no reservations by that hour, only at 2:00pm. So somebody would have to arrive by that time and wait until the... More

We were looking for good seafood, and Contramar came highly recommended. We were not disappointed! Their margaritas were a great way to start the meal--not overly sweet, nicely lime-y, with a healthy dose of tequila. The food was exceptionally good, with the ceviche a definite success, tostadas with shrimp no less so. Our group also enjoyed a variety of tacos,... More

Amazing food and service. Try the Fish Contramar, is delicious! I recommend to make a reservation or the wait will be too long.

We got there an hour before our reservation and the restaurant was full. They seated us right away. Service was super fast and the food was amazing. It costed us less than 100 dollars for three.

Sidled up with no booking for Sunday afternoon lunch - and got added to the wait list. There were lots of eager diners buzzing like bees around the entrance - always a good sign. A few beers with Mrs Choosy-Chappy at the excellent bar on the corner and back to Contramar for what was an excellent meal. It would feel... More
