My wife and I were new to the City of Oaxaca and on our 1st night in the Historic District of the city, we decided to take in some nightlife on their Roof Top. We loved the scenic view fresh air and beautiful landscape. Had some appetizers and some craft beer. The service was great and the servers and staff... More

Fuimos a este lugar porque lo sugerido en una guía. Si bien tiene una linda terraza con vista a Santo Domigo, la comida no tiene nada de especial y el lugar estaba desocupada. Adicionalmente, los precios son muy elevados en comparación con otros restaurante. Habiendo tantas buenas opciones para comer en Oaxaca, no recomendaría este restaurante. We visited this place...

Total respect for the great restaurants, innovative chefs in Oaxaca, sorry to rate mediocre and to be honest I only had the "Oaxaca Sabe" taster menu. (Oaxaca Sabe is a multi-restaurant promotional where you get a set menu of three choices with an alcoholic drink fr only 250 peso , which was held the week of Mar 7, 2016 -... More

We went there based on a very positive review from one of the best-selling guide book and it was more than a disappointment. The service was very slow and unfriendly. We tried the specialty recommended in that famous guide book, the "caldo de piedra" : a shrimp-and-fish soup cooked at your table by a pre-Hispanic method using hot stones inside... More

Is not worth your time, neither your money. They forget the customer is their priority. Slow and rude service, the view is OK but the bar itself is messy and dirty. We waited 20 min for the waiter to come and when he finally did, it wasn't to take our order, but to command us too change table because where... More

I went ona very nice evening so the roof terrace was full of drinkers and diners. It has a very nice view of Sto Domingo and the drinks come within a half hour. But the food, which is pretty bad, doesn't come at all because there has been a mixup in the kitchen, I mean actually 2 mixups in the... More

We had drinks and appetizers at this place, it has THE best views of the Santo Domingo temple, nice ambience (albeit, a bit young and loungy) and good/efficient service. The appetizers were tasty too. We went twice, the first night we swapped tables with a larger party sitting in a small 2-top table, but ended up next to a party... More

The rooftop dining area is exceptional with a great view of the vibrant life on the street near the plaza. Our service was also very solid and friendly. We decided to order a few starters for a tapas style dinner. The empanadas were made from corn tortilla and had no mole taste whatsever. The duck was full of bones (dangerous... More

I'd eaten here a few times, loved the food, and recommeneded it to people. But never again. I was here late August, with two friends from London who visited me. I told them Crespo would be a culinary highlight before we headed back to DF. I was wrong. The view is great. The ceviche is good. The fish fine. But... More

On Spring holiday in Oaxaca we wanted to drink a beer and to have a light dinner. This place offers a terrace with good music and a good environment. The food is good but not as good as in other restaurants in Oaxaca, with the same price-quality level. Of course they make themselves the tortilas, but that's quite normal in... More
