The fried corn tortilla chips were excellent with three dipping sauces, one being mole. Good. However, the sea bass was as dry as sawdust. I should have sent it back, but I ate almost half, being so very hungry. Just a precaution to order it...More

This restaurant is inside a shopping mall. We were here for lunch and it is very busy and chaotic. They serve breakfast until 1pm, and lunch service after that. The breakfast is decent, predictable and likely consistent. Prices reasonable.

We had dinner in this restaurant in our first night in CDMX. It was walking distance from our hotel in Polanco. It was a great restaurant to try Mexican food. Beautiful ambiance and excellent service. Totally recommended.

Poshness defines Polanco, this wealthy neighborhood
retains elegance unmatched elsewhere in Distrito
Federal. Brunch in the Polanquito area, then keep up
with the latest fashion trends in luxury boutiques
around every corner. Top it off with beautiful cafés
and restaurants that surround Lincoln Park, a treat to
the senses thanks to the art decó architecture and
high quality gourmet cuisine found here.

At El Bajío we try to make art and culture being noticed and enjoyed by eating the magnificence of traditional Mexican cuisine. We provide a space in which the most diverse dishes of the traditional Mexican cuisine coexist, starting with the delicacies of Carmen "Titita’s" homeland of Veracruz such as the anise gorditas, the filet of fish Veracruz-style and the papantecos tamales, as well as typical dishes of northern Mexico, including the pride of the house: carnitas Michoacán-style, as well as other delicacies from Yucatán, Puebla and Oaxaca, to mention a few others.
