I am typically quick to write positive TripAdvisor reviews and slow on the negative. I’m grateful to use this as a resource however for recommendations so feel I should be honest with the bad reviews as well. In a city flooded with delicious street food...More

Cute & cozy place. You are eating in the family's home. Unique experience! We had the Tasting Menu, not on the menu, which was very good. The only complaint were the tortillas... we were expecting homemade tortillas but we were served store bought tortillas. Everything...More

Had dinner here after reading that this was Calvin Trillin’s favorite Oaxacan restaurant. It’s about a 70 peso cab ride from the Centro in the Reforma District. We all agreed that it was our best meal yet in Oaxaca. Our waiter was friendly and guided...More

It’s not listed on the menu but do ask for the tasting menu, you won’t be disappointed. Ask to sit in the garden. Food like your Mexican grandmother might make. Beautiful setting in the lush patio garden in the home of the chef. Sweet gentle...More

This restaurant is small (3 -4 tables only) but the food it serves is excellent. It seems to be catering to locals not the tourists. However, the food is very good and authentic. Price is also very reasonable.
