We went to celebrate a special event with a friend. Climbing 2 1/2 flights, we passed the kitchen and ended up on the rooftop terrace. What a lovely view of Carmen Alto and Santo Domingo at sunset! Bloody Mary, mojito and a girly pink mezcal,...More

Great location with a terrace directed to Santo Domingo's church. The service is friendly and cocktails made out of mezcal, very good. Food is fine, just go for the safe options like tasajo o tlayudas.

above average prices, but way above average atmosphere. Get a table on the terrace upstairs and enjoy the view - it's worth it. Res. best. Good service, food, wine and atmosphere. This was our favorite restaurant in Oax.

Sit o. The roof deck for a spectacular view of Santo Domingo. Be sure to order the squash blossom empanadas. The food is delicious and presented as a work of art. Service is attentive but not intrusive.

We came across this restaurant by accident and were totally happy with our find. The view of the church across the street was a perfect place to drink their creative mezcal cocktails. For food, get the squash blossom and cheese empanada, or the octopus gordita....More
