“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I've lived in the state of Oaxaca for the past 10 years. This week I had my current favorite Oaxaca meal/dining experience at the Casa Oaxaca Cafe. Delicious and intriguing food combinations. Fresh as can be. The green mole had a spinach base but was infused with mint. Not a " heavy" dish. Share a salad, they're huge. The dessert menu is equally creative. Experienced and fun servers. Highly recommended!

“Excellent Choice for an Excellent but Expensive Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Note: This restaurant is in the Colonia Reforma. It is about 6 blocks NORTH of the ADO bus station. It is not close to the Santo Domingo Church. For la comida, someone actually prepared salsa to our taste (a bit picante.) using a mortar and pestal. A mole Negro dish is about 140 pesos. Nice garden type atmosphere with excellent service.

“Rather expensive but good food in a nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

If you want to spend some money then this is a very pleasant restaurant, especially on the rooftop. The food was very good and the service good as well. Be sure to reserve a seat next to the wall overlooking Sto. Domingo for early evening, as the view of activity is really fun to enjoy.
