Fodor's Review

This French-inflected local favorite serves as a second living room to a relaxed Condesa crowd. You may have to wait for a table on weekends, but one look at the handwritten chalkboard menu, and you'll be hooked. The salad of the day is always a good bet, as are quiche with fillings ranging from bacon to spinach to leek.

Bistrot Mosaico Review

There are several branches of this Bistrot, and the one we found is located on Paseo de Reforma right by the Angel of Independence. Downstairs, there's a deli for take out and a little bistrot for a late lunch, coffee and dessert; upstairs, a handsomely laid out dining experience with waiters attending to your every need. We tried both over the New Year 2012. For what you get -- in food and service, the prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere

is similar to a Parisien bistrot, so it seems weird that everyone speaks Spanish rather than French. The menus are written in French and Spanish, although some of the translations from Spanish to French are not exact. For example, the red snapper fish in Spanish is Huachinango. It was translated the same into French. Not "perche rouge" or even viveneau. Whatever, since my French is better than my Spanish, I could get by for the most part. This Bistrot makes some of the best French onion soup gratinee found either in or out of France. It was absolutely perfect. Another hard thing to find in Mexican cantinas or bars is a decent wine, especially white. Here, there were several relatively inexpensive wines along with the very expensive ones. Food is superb, but so much of it. The house salad is like a caesar, but it's more than enough for two. The bread here is fresh and hot with a perfect crust. The main courses are also massive. Half our party had the duck; the other half had a filet of beef, with a choice of sauce. Both delicious. The only negative comment is that my beef could have been cooked longer -- best to ask that it be done "tres-quatros", meaning "medium well" instead of medium, since medium comes out almost tartare -- or walking.

Great Pic, nice food, great value

You should really try the new location at Avendia de La Paz, San Ángel. The restaurant is located at an old country house and is much more spacey that the Condesa sede.
