Light normal dinner

On Spring holiday in Oaxaca we wanted to drink a beer and to have a light dinner. This place offers a terrace with good music and a good environment. The food is good but not as good as in other restaurants in Oaxaca, with the same price-quality level. Of course they make themselves the tortilas... read more

Is not worth your time, neither your money. They forget the customer is their priority. Slow and rude service, the view is OK but the bar itself is messy and dirty. We waited 20 min for the waiter to come and when he finally did, it wasn't to take our order, but to command us too change table because where... More

I went ona very nice evening so the roof terrace was full of drinkers and diners. It has a very nice view of Sto Domingo and the drinks come within a half hour. But the food, which is pretty bad, doesn't come at all because there has been a mixup in the kitchen, I mean actually 2 mixups in the... More

We had drinks and appetizers at this place, it has THE best views of the Santo Domingo temple, nice ambience (albeit, a bit young and loungy) and good/efficient service. The appetizers were tasty too. We went twice, the first night we swapped tables with a larger party sitting in a small 2-top table, but ended up next to a party... More

The rooftop dining area is exceptional with a great view of the vibrant life on the street near the plaza. Our service was also very solid and friendly. We decided to order a few starters for a tapas style dinner. The empanadas were made from corn tortilla and had no mole taste whatsever. The duck was full of bones (dangerous... More

I'd eaten here a few times, loved the food, and recommeneded it to people. But never again. I was here late August, with two friends from London who visited me. I told them Crespo would be a culinary highlight before we headed back to DF. I was wrong. The view is great. The ceviche is good. The fish fine. But... More

While I first went to Casa Crespo for dinner, during my four-day stay, I returned each evening for a bowl of hot chocolate, which had been the closer of my initial meal. While the soup dish that I ate on night one was rich with vegetables and flavor, it was the hot chocolate that hooked me into returning night after... More

Arrived on a recommendation, seen the prices and thought... "Swit swoo, fancy fancy". Thought we'd treat ourselves on our last night in Mexico. So firstly, the lamp shades. The lampshades are buckets! The type you drink cheap alcohol out of in Thailand on your gap year. With LED lighting. But anyways... We have eaten in many restaurants charging 100$ for... More

The view from the rooftop of the Church of Santo Domingo is beautiful, and a great setting for a drink, but staying for dinner maybe disappointing. The service is slow and the quality of the food was mixed. The enchiladas were cold but the squash croquettes were delicious.

I took cooking classes here at the Casa Crespo; you can make reservations by phone (951) 516 0918 or on their website http://casacrespo.com/. Classes are $65 per person for the day (no minimum number of people). When you arrive in the morning, they serve you coffee, a few snacks and delicious hot chocolate. You and your classmates decide the cooking... More
