“Roof top dining”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

The food was fantastic and the service equal. It was cool so our waiter provided us with wonderful white shawls to take away the chill. A large wedding party was accomodated without effecting service to the other patrons

“Delicious Oaxaca food”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Dining in the rooftop overlooking Convento de Santo Domingo is an experience by itself. Add to that great live music, excellent and fast service, and delicious food and you have a winning combination. A bit pricey, but it is worth it.

“Mixed Review”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Really loved sitting on the rooftop. Staff very friendly. Appetizers were very good. Margarita was very good. Did not like my main course but they replaced it without a problem. Unfortunately I didn't like the replacement meal either (duck). Desserts were very good. If I visited Oaxaca again, I would probably try this restaurant again.

“The best evidence why Oaxaca is the culinary capitol of Mexico!”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

In November 2013 I designed and hosted a special mezcal and beer lovers' cultural tour of Oaxaca for 16 people. Casa Oaxaca Restaurant was selected as the venue for our closing restaurant banquet. This was based upon a recommendation by a local expert and am I glad I listened to his advice! Because the focus of this tour was so specialized, it was important that the theme was carried over into the culinary side. Casa Oaxaca did not disappoint. The menu was specially designed for us and demonstrated their creativity, flexibility and the exceptional culinary standards by which they operate. If anybody is wondering what all the fuss is about concerning Oaxacan cuisine, go to Casa Oaxaca and find out for yourself. I will absolutely be using them again on my 2014 mezcal and beer lovers' tour. Highly recommended!

Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Great place to eat under the stars next to Santo Domingo and has a wonderfull view. The food is good and the staff a little slow getting started but overall I recommend this as one restraunts not to be missed in Oaxaca ,make reservations in advance as roof top dining books quickly and Impossible during special holidays and events. We started with a homemade hot salsa that is made at your table great chilies,guacamole,homemade azul tortillas , The steak and mole was tender and tasty and the shrimp and mango sauce you cant go wrong. Fish very fresh please note fish is delivered twice a week from the Pacific coast best day to eat fish is Tuesday and Friday. Service is a bit slower in Mexico be patience and have another mezcal and everthing will perfect.
