Beautiful service and atmosphere. I went once, with friends in the evening and again alone in late afternoon. Both experiences were delightful. The service is professional and the food exceptional.

I am a foodie and I love great food. We just happened on to this place and it was amazing. We had the pasta with fresh squash blossom sauce. The pasta was homemade, the sauce is seriously wonderful. I have never had such a meal. We also had their seared tuna with pasta in a chili sauce that rocked. It was a take a bite and put your fork down to savor the flavor kind of meal. We had the chocolate cream dessert with the chocolate chili ice cream. Their wine was good too. We cannot recommend this place more. it's at the top of our list. And they had amazing bread with a cream cheese inside that was delicious. The white table cloths just completed the picture.

This was one of my most memorable dining experiences ever. We started out with a mezcal cocktail that was beautifully presented. The food was amazing. For dessert we had several different kinds of gelato served in small spoons. Our server was excellent. We found we had to use our limited Spanish but we were able to communicate. Do not miss this fine restaurant when you are in Oaxaca!

This restaurant has a very good reputation but we were disappointed in our meal. While the menu sounded appealing, the food was just average. I had the impression that they’ve made the same dishes so many times over many years, that the spark is long gone.

There are many fine restaurants in Oaxaca, and they would be well advised to up their game a bit to compete for the discerning customers who come looking for authentic food prepared with love.
