The location is very nice, and also the food is pretty good! We tried the tasting menu and the drinks (wine, beer, and mezcal) were associated with the plates. A very good experience! Also the service was very fast and precise. I'll come back for...More

Food was off the hook delicious and beautifully plated! I highly recommend the plantain dumplings for a shared starter and duck breast. Yogurt espuma for desert was the perfect ending. Wine and mezcal list were excellent. Room is very beautiful and in a great location...More

I was very disappointed in my dinner. Picked this place for my last night in Oaxaca. Octopus was rubbery (overcooked) with a sauce that didn’t have much flavor. Beet salad lacked Oaxaca flavors - could have been in any restaurant in the USA. My server...More

Origen is one of the top-rated restaurants in a culinary destination like Oaxaca, for good reason. The food is great; the plate presentation creative, and it has an extensive mezcal, wine, and beverage list. Plus the old colonial building is lovely. So why only 3...More
