The food is unique and delicious, however everything is a la carte and small dishes. We left hungry. The fish was undercooked and had to be sent back, but all in all the experience was good, and we will probably go back.

Lardo came highly recommended from a friend and also from an Airbnb experience host. I would not go out of my way to go here again. Upon being seated, our waitress was rude and not welcoming. After ordering, one of the pizzas was incorrect which she denied and did not offer to replace the food. The steak, potato lasagna, and eggplant parmesan were good, but the service was so off-putting that we did not stay for another drink or dessert. Having dined in several nice restaurants throughout Mexico, Lardo was the most disappointing.

We arrived early to our reservation and were seated almost right away which was nice. We were greeted by our waiter almost immediately after sitting down and to our luck spoke both English and Spanish. We were given both menus. We ordered about 7 different dishes, all which were amazing. The deep fried avocados in lemon sauce was amazing. Our waiter was very attentive and before our wine glasses were empty would ask if we’d like another.

Service was ok, nothing great. At the end of our meal while we were drinking our coffee, 4 or 5 different waiters kept on coming to pick up the bill... obnoxious!!!

The highlight of the night were the ham croquettes, which were really outstanding. The rest was average at best. The location is fine, and the summer sunset light through the big open window was delightful. But service was rushed, and the whole experience was mild and uneventful. Portions are very small. Overall not a good value. We do not feel like visiting again.

El lugar es hermoso y acogedor, los sabores son una fiesta en el paladar, la cerveza artesanal es una delicia, la pizza de chorizo y burrata, el pan en horno de piedra, y que huele a leña me resulto casi mágico. El estilo vintage-rusticon es precioso, los detalles como las botellas de agua son exquisitos. En conjunto es un lugar para pasar una tarde deliciosa.
Los precios si son un poco elevados, pero la calidad de los ingredientes lo valen.
Fui muy feliz.

Lardo has great food, all of the products come from local and organic farms which make the flavor delicious. We had the nduja pizza and the yellow sting beans slad for starters and we just love the pizza crust and the freshness of the salad. I truly recommend to ask for the daily specials.

Our one night in Mexico City has to be special. Lardo did not disappoint. Highlights included the stuffed zucchini flowers, burrata and chorizo pizza, the red snapper and the caramelized banana dessert. Everything was outstanding! A ver delicious meal. Hope to be back very soon.

Best meal we had in Mexico City. Everyone hypes about Contramar, but Lardo blows them away! It’s not even close. Definitely make a point to eat here. The black rice and squid will change your life.

Fresh made pitta bread is delicious. Shared the broccolini and the arugula salad, both fresh and recently cut from the garden. We all had the fish of the day which was prepared to perfection, crispy skin, tender flesh. The wine was an albarino, the best for a hot day. I did not have dessert, my friends did and said it was outstanding. I took a small bite of the tarragon ice cream, heavenly.

Regresé dos veces el corte wagyu, increíble pedir un corte así y que llegue fibroso dos veces, quiere decir que no hay un buen control de calidad. Lo demás estuvo bien pero me quedo con mala imagen.

We were delighted with our visit to Lardo . We did make a reservation and it was honored right away , no waiting . We had the Flores de calabaza filled with goat cheese, with a delicious sauce on the side . Our friends had a pizza with eggplant that was very good . They have a big pizza oven . We also had two meat tacos with a yogurt sauce that were super. I don’t think you can go wrong with anything there it’s all delicious. The servings are on the small side which we happen to enjoy more . The breads and pastries are to die for ! The coffee is excellent too . I’d like to go back and try breakfast someday, must be great . The restaurant is not large but it is popular so making a reservation is a good idea ! The desert made with avellanas was wonderful . Our waiter was very sweet and patient with us . An enjoyable lunch indeed .
