It is a great place to try the traditional cuisine of Mexico City. The mole was truly mouth watering and the food was excellent. yes, it can be on the pricey side in comparison to other restaurants but the quality is what I went here for and it did not disappoint.

This is a charming place, with a beautiful atmosphere and a great design...but just that. The service is very inefficient and the food is just the worst Oxacan food I have ever tried. The meat tastes like it has been frozen for a very long time and the mole sauce is definitely not the best. The quality is very poor,... More

The menu is filled with traditional Meixco dishes which you may have found intriguing if you came across them at a market, or a street vendor but you didn't feel brave enough to try them. They have things like Escamoles (Ants Eggs) and Chapulines (Grasshoppers) and because of the way the waiter described them we gave them a try. They... More

The food is delicious, i was able to sample a trio of moles with totopos, just a sample but the depth of flavor was impressive. I asked then for a small plate of chalupitas and as a main the Oaxaca "caldo a la piedra"... More

Great option for delicious Mexican Food. Really enjoyed all the items ordered and the complementary Mezcal upon arrival was a nice touch. Only con was our waiter kind of was having a bad day. Other than that a great option! They're Mole Oaxaqueño is to die for with a nice smoky flavor really different from any other.
