La comida salada .
Esperaba ( por el precio) una comida más fina y los platillos eran bastos. Para el precio que tienen los alimentos la calidad y el sabor es muy bajo.
Solo estuvo bien el servicio.

Es un gran lugar, la comida tiene excelente calidad y sabor el lugar muy sofisticado y con clase. El único pero que tuvimos fue que en la mesa algunas personas les pareció la comida ligeramente salada, pero nada grave.

Esperaba mucho de este lugar y desafortunadamente mi experiencia fue bastante regular en todos aspectos.

La comida es diferente pero no me encanto y tampoco corresponde con su precio; el servicio muy por debajo al estándar que debiera tener un restaurante de esta categoría.

El servicio estuvo muy bien, y todos los platillos que pedimos tenían muy buen sabor. En especial las tostadas de mentiras, el sope de chicharrón prensado y pulpo, el risotto a la tumbada, la lengua de res, el short rib y el mostachón tropical.

This was, by far, the best meal that I've ever had in Mexico City. And I've eaten at all the major, highly rated restaurants, including Pujol. Let me tell you, save your pennies at Pujol (which is still very good), and spend them at Carmela y Sal. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

We started off with La Zanahoria Fea (The Ugly Carrot), and Jicama with basil pesto, green/white grapes, and pistachios. Both dishes were absolutely superb. Note that the dishes are somewhat large, and these two dishes alone could have fed probably 3-4 people for appetizers and decent portions.

Next, we had the Tierra de Luna: little plantains filled with beans and in a bed of tomato salsa with ranch and chicharron. INCREDIBLE. Sweet, savory and just insane. I'd eat these every day if I could.

Finally, we ordered two entrees. IF you are a group of 2 people, one entree is more than enough. Two was too many after the previous three courses. For this Climax, as the restaurant calls it, we ordered the Canelones rellenos de cochinita pibil (cannelonis filled with Cochinita Pibil). Talk about masterful cooking. There were 2 to the order and just PERFECT. Also, we ordered the Filete de res, a sort of steak with incredible sauce and tortillitas. The explosions of flavor in everything and beauty of the restaurant make me desperate to go back and want the chef to open a restaurant in Houston! (Please!!)

Now, the drinks. Cocktails are one of this restaurant's bread and butter items, and they did not disappoint. Get the citronela, a light and refreshing drink. My friend got the ahumado, and it was smoky with a beautiful presentation.


10/10 will go again and recommend ALWAYS.

Stunningly beautiful restaurant. The food was mouthwatering, though my pork dish was a tad salty for me. The service was super attentive without being smothering. Definitely one of our best dining experiences in a city with a wealth of eating establishments. Price wise it was also cheaper than some of the so-called in restaurants where we paid more and weren’t nearly as impressed. Will definitely return on my next Mexico City trip.

Desde mi punto de vista, uno de los mejores restaurantes de comida mexicana. Los platillos, todos, estuvieron en verdad deliciosos. La carta de verdad, una obra maestra. Los ingredientes de primera. La atención inmejorable, las recomendaciones atinadas, mucha amabilidad. Música con volumen adecuado para poder platicar. No tengo un solo pero. Felicidades a la chef por enaltecer la comida tabasqueña.
