“Wonderful food, fabulous service, simple, elegant surroundings.”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We arrived in Oaxaca in the evening and by the time we were looking for dinner it was almost 10pm. Understand that by that time of the evening we are usually thinking about bed, not dinner and that I get cranky when I am tired and hungry. Well, at Casa Oaxaca Restaurant it would be impossible to be cranky at any time of the day or night. The restaurant itself is quiet, simply decorated and with an enviable, understated elegance. Our waiter took our order, then came back with a giant, crisp, blue corn tortilla covered with queso fresco, then he asked if we preferred our salsa on a tomato or tomatillo base, we selected tomatillo, and he made the salsa at our table. It was wonderful. My husband had confit of goat which was tender, moist and wonderful. I had rack of lamb in a mole, the lamb was cooked to perfection and paired perfectly with the sauce. Our waiter was professional, attentive, but not intrusive. It was an unforgettable and wonderful experience, thank you

“Excellent mexican selection!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

I can say that this restaurant is one of the best I have been in my life!
The way they did the "salsa" in molcajete, the soup with lemon tea I still remember! and the tortillas were the best I have tried!
Casa Oaxaca is a must! when you are around Oaxaca city..

“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.
