Oscar could hardly have been more disinterested in teaching me. While his staff was supportive and organized it felt like rushed. The food we prepared was OK; nothing notable, doubt that I will make anything again. Don't bother.

The rooftop seating ovelooks a courtyard off the Cultural Museum. The food was good, save room for dessert. Try the hot chocolate con leche. There's a chocolate counter downstairs too, so you can bring some cocoa goodness home with you.

The view, the music, the lighting... will just get you in the mood to enjoy the food, the drinks and the company. I went there in December and it suddenly felt like enjoying a night out during a summer holiday. Loved my pepino margarita.

This is one of the many trendy places to eat in the lovely old town of Oaxaca but even the terrific view from the rooftop couldn't make up for the mediocre food.

Worst service, dangerously disgusting allegedly prehispanic seafood soup to be avoided at all costs. Like in New York, some places exist for their views. Have a drink if you must, then run as far and as fast as you can from here. Go eat a tamale from the street or walk to Casa oaxaca or catédrale. But do not let... More

I was there last night with a friend having mezcal and some snacks. Service is a bit slow but good. The ambiance is very relaxed and you have to climb several steps to get to the place. Casa crespo is a culinary restaurant so during the day you can learn how to cook. Place is good but usually packed so... More

I have been traveling in Oaxaca for 2 weeks, and decided to try Casa de Crespo (because I read about it in a magazine). It could have been that I came in at a bad time, but I waited for a while, and no one came. I approached the owner, who was distracted with some bills he was working on,... More

This place was recommended from several sources I've researched before visiting, so we went there in our second night in town. Terrace is lovely, overlooking Santo Domingo, and it has a very pleasant lively atmosphere. The drinks were good, but the service was inattentive. The waiter suggested me and my friend had some kind of tasting menu that quickly proved... More

First, I'd like to start by saying I'm a bit disappointed in the most recent reviews as they are far off from what my boyfriend and I experienced. Based on the dates the reviews were written, I can only assume that these dinners ate at Casa Crespo during the Santa Semana (Holy Week). During this time, the whole city was... More
