Great space, great service, great drinks great food. What else do you need to know? This restaurant clearly punches above its weight class in a good way. Tables are well spaced, nice drinks program (avoid the smoke maybe it seems as if it could be really sweet? And some of the whiskey drinks are served in a hollowed out book - very cool!).

And onto the food - delicious. Everything on the menu seems to be something you’d want to eat. The octopus toast was great (beware of too much of the habanero salsa), the fake tostados which you can look up all over the inter web (coconut pretending to be fish and pork) were great. We had the short rib and the fish en papilotte and both were amazing (perhaps the nod to the short rib by a hair?).

The service was wonderful too. Friendly and helpful and cheerful and respectful all in one.

They do a great job all around - you shouldn’t think twice about booking here.

We went to Carmela y Sal based on a recommendation from a friend that lives in CDMX. The cocktails and food were amazing! We went with all of the chef recommended dishes. We were initially concerned about a potential dress code. No one was in extremely casual clothing, but there were people with sneakers or jeans here and there, wearing other items that dressed up their outfit. So it seemed flexible. Overall amazing, highly recommend!!

Amazing food and the service was great.
We had a couple of amazing starters and my main course was delicious. My wife was sadly not a fan of her linguine & king prawns as it was too sweet for her taste, but it did not detract from the night!

La ensalada de zanahoria de entrada es muy buena.

El risotto a la tumbada con el huachinango estaba un poco salado.

Excelente servicio.

Uno de los platillos estaba pasado de sal y el fideo seco estaba batido, además la presentación nada buena. Lo mejor fue el lechón. ¿4 postres, en serio? Aunado a que ya en invierno ofrezcan uno ¿tropical? Lo conocí, no regresaré ni lo recomiendo.

Comida exquisita. Los cócteles están un poco cargados, un gran lugar para celebrar alguna ocasión especial. Mi único comentario es la música de fondo aunque el ruido no molesta la selección podría ser mejor

The food was excellent as always, we were celebrating an special birthday and at the end they brought us a cake with a candle which made the occasion even more special. The service was outstanding. We always recommend Carmela y Sal, one of the best restaurants in CDMX yet.

Es uno de los mejores restaurantes de la CDMX. La Chef Gabriela Ruiz cuida cada detalle: el servicio, el lugar, la decoración, el ambiente, pero sobre todo su cocina contemporánea mexicana con esa influencia del sureste.

It’s a nice place, the food it’s ok, in my opinion the “Sope de chicharrón prensando” was outstanding. The place it’s beautiful at the eye but poor at the ear, the tables are so close between each other and you can’t have a quiet conversation.
