The 4 different guacs were really the same guac with 4 different toppings, so that was a disappointment; but the rest of the meal was great. The corn on the cob with aioli, cotija cheese & spices was really tasty, chile relleno was great, and the tequila ole!

AFter having drank and eaten in San Francsico the night before we headed to St Helena to start our wine adventure, we always stop at La Condesa for its amazing mexican food, the taco sampler is the best....I am a sucker for good carnitas!

This is one of the only bars that serves T1 tequila which is superb for sipping. I also tried the prickly pear margarita & my husband tried the house made pepper margarita both were excellent. We tried the guacamole tasting & the taco flight both excellent. We also tried the homemade mac & cheese which was probably the best we... More

My wife and I stopped in to take a break from a long day of being tourists. She was not very hungry, so Guacamole and chips was plenty for her. I started with the Pork Belly Huarache, with fig jam, Manchego, arugula/apple salad, and chevre'. Brilliant! The Cochinita Platter reminded me of a great meal at a friend's home in... More

The avocado dishes and salsa dishes come with chips. Great Appetizer and the tacos were good, the pablano stuffed pepper was awesome. We will go back.

Great guacamole and a very good roasted chicken/mole. The soft taco selection is too difficult to chose just three for the order. Service was very attentive. Portions were more than adequate and the prices were reasonable, considering Napa.
