Had heard about this eatery a few years ago, but took until this past March/14 to get there and am now sorry it took so long. The atmosphere and the food in this fabulous, out of the way, family owned and operated restaurant were more than we could have hoped for. We arrived without a reservation and I can not... More

By far-the food, service (Coco was the best) and walking through the neighborhood, made for a wonderful evening. The Mexican Plate and Mole Pablano were exceptional and ingredients were fresh. Might even go again before we leave!

Disappointing. Granted perhaps unfair to judge after spending a month in the gemstone of Mexican food-Oaxaca, but this charming, quirkily decorated restaurant has super average food. My Chiles en Nogada, one of my favorite dishes, was bland, no depth of flavor. My husband's costillas in "extremely" mild red sauce was also "so simple", probably not sufficiently braised in the sauce…according... More

I'm confused by the negative reviews. We were in PV a couple of weeks ago and liked this place so much we went back again. The mole is superb. Also loved the chiles rellenos. The side of beans was so delicious I could've made a meal of just that. If you are looking for fancy or American-ized Mexican food, this... More

We visited this restaurant last night and left very disappointed. We did not even finish our meals as our food was under water. The service and waiters were also subpar, the waiters were actually rude. I would never visit this restaurant again.

This is by far the worse meal I have had in PV. Heard good things about it, but that was not out experience. The four of us had different dishes and all of them were extremely poor quality. The prices were not cheap for the quality of the food. There was nothing appealing about this place. I can get much... More

Cute atmosphere but, I ordered the chilies picadillo and was terribly disappointed, dish was swimming in what looked like a watery sauce, made the chiles rellanos mushy and tasteless along with the scant meat stuffing. Should of stuck with the Chicken mole Poblano style which my husband had, and was tasty. Sorry I just didn't like what I ordered there!

With the food that i ate chile rellano sitting in a pool of liquid i wondered how a resteraunt could employ a waiter that harrased and made fun of it's customers. I ate there twice this week, found the food to be average mexican fare. The key was when our waiter possibly named jose, he gave the appearence of being... More

This funky little place is off the beaten track but well worth finding. We have been twice and love the authenticity of the food as well as quality. Service is very good. I had Chicken Mole Oaxaca, a black mole that was complex and delicious. Flan for dessert was possibly the best I've had. Reservations recommended!

It is off the beaten path (take a taxi) but well worth it. After many years of traveling to Mexico, this is one of the best meals we have ever had!
