Much more creative than most restaurants in Oaxaca. We stopped by for lunch on New Year's Eve, and the experience was so good we made a reservation for a late dinner that night. We just had to try more things on the menu. Moles were some of the best we had on our trip - subtle and complex. We even risked having salads, after being assured the ingredients had been disinfected. No problems! Excellent service.

The food was ok, nothing fancy or tasty. Service was average. I wouldn't go back, there are many other restaurants to spend your time and money. The only good thing was the atmosphere, nice patio.

This is not the typical food you would get from a Oaxacan grandma, but it is very good. They use the same ingredients, add some new, and make new creations. I was afraid to try, because sometimes this adventures fail. But we liked it a lot. The place has a beautiful decoration and great ambiance.

While the inside courtyard makes for a pleasant dining experience, the high prices and bland food ruins it. The service was very good and friendly however the menu items are over-priced. My wife's mole lacked flavour and my salsa verde was greasy with no heat to it at all (a rarity in Mexico); both sauces tasted as if they had come from a can. The Margaritas are good and the beer selection reasonable. While the restaurant is very pleasant to dine in, the food is not to standard for the prices charged.

The restaurant is located less than a block from the Zocalo in Oaxaca, but it provides a very tranquil setting to relax and enjoy your meal. The food is excellent with many different types mole from which to choose. It is set in the enclosed courtyard of a colonial building, providing a very nice setting in which to dine. You can eat for much cheaper at a taco stand, but the prices are in line with most of the other restaurants in the area.
