The interior will "wow" you! I don't think the food was exceptional, but definitely worth a visit for cocktails!

We love the building and the atmosphere. The service is excellent. I can taste the wines by the glass before ordering. Great pasta and soups. Have been here several times. They have good bread. Sometimes, there is live music during early evening. They give you appetizers to snack on before your food arrives.

Securing a reservation was not on the cards on our visit to Oaxaca yet we managed to sit in the lounge cozy area and had some outstanding small dishes. The host at door was a little arrogant yet he warmed up. Our waiter was very friendly and our experience was very positive We hope to secure a reservation next time

My husband and I came here for lunch. The ambience was unique and the tables were well placed, not too near each other. We had jamaitinis (mescal cocktails), organic lettuce salad and tortilla soup which were both excellent. The fish of the day was dorado and was tasty, but the fish was dry. The shredded chicken mole was very good.... More

Don't really know Oaxacan food very well but the ingredients seemed local and were very fresh. A unique dining experience in a setting that was quite extraordinary. Gorgeous decor and ambiance, super modern with a tropical touch, and the service was excellent. Thought it would be too hyped because it's high up in the ratings but was worth it; I'd... More

Had our farewell dinner there and we weren't disappointed. The mezcal drinks are great. Ordered the mole tamales which were great. The ambience is fantastic because of the lighting and gorgeous waterfall. The service experience is wonderful.

We ate lunch here twice while in Oaxaca City and the atmosphere, the service and the food were all superb. The imaginative menu features fresh, local Oaxacan ingredients beautifully presented. It is Oaxacan fine dining. It's a great dining value too.

We have taken advantage of the Menu del Dia which is offered only on certain days of the week two times. Both meals were quite nice, with a fusion of Oaxacan and other cuisines. Everything was well-made and presented rather elegantly. It was ridiculously inexpensive, which probably explains why you must have a reservation. I believe only a set number... More

This restaurant is fantastic. Trendy open decor, excellent staff and exquisite food. Very reasonably priced. It felt like New York on a Mexican budget. We loved it. And I concur the mole was epic.
