Marmota review image



Plaza Río de Janeiro 53, Ciudad de México
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Plaza Rio de Janeiro could easily be considered the heart of Roma. It’s home to two of the colonia’s most iconic landmarks, La Casa de las Brujas and the statue of David. And it’s where you’ll find some really good restaurants—including Marmota, which might just be the best of them. Run by a lovely Mexican American couple, this place makes some of the heartiest (and best) food in CDMX right now. 

Most of their produce comes from local farms and their meats are all farm-raised. You can also bet that pretty much everything you order (like the smashed baby potatoes with homemade hoja santa yogurt and caviar or the free-range chicken with radicchio salad) will be wood-oven cooked, smokey, and incredibly delicious. Their cocktail menu is impressive, but we always go for one of the many hard cider options here. They go great with anything charred on the menu, which basically means everything.
