Mindblowing mezcal margaritas (though a bit of an affront to many aficionados of mezcal) and an interesting selection of ingredients across many dishes. The staff is generally too busy for very good service and the prices aren't light on the wallet. But the place is full of "buzz" and touristas... read more

Very relaxed atmosphere. Good Mojito's and the jicama appetizer is refreshing. Ambiance is very inviting and the staff is exceptional. A place to go for everyday Mexican food.

Walked in without a reservation and was quickly accommodated for a great meal. Casual place to eat with wide menu . I thoroughly enjoyed a ginger pumpkin soup and a fabulous salad with local cheeses extraordinary Serrano ham, fruits, greens and a delicious vinaigrette. Local cuisine reinvented and many other choices. It would fun with a large group

no surprises here. Consistent with other reviews... the food is good, and the setting is wonderful. But the service is seriously lacking.

We were recommended this by someone that studied in Oaxaca. Has a really cool modern stype and some nice little touches. Everything on the menu looks great, and what we ordered came out in a innovative presentation and was real top class food. Steak was thick and delicious. Drinks were strong and well made. Only gripe is that getting attention... More

My main of chicken breast pieces wrapped in plantain and smothered in a guava mole sauce was wrong on so many levels. The chicken was so dry it was like cardboard. The plantain and sauce were tasty but not with the chicken. So... More
