It is very expensive, so if you are hungry it's not the best option for you. The portions are tiny and the prices insane.The service is excellent and the place is nice.

This is not a very well known "gourmet"restaurant but definitely it should be recommended to people looking for fine European style food. Decor is modern. We have been here four times and it was consistently very good each time. The menu is Mediterranean leaning towards French and Spanish nouvelle cuisine with some out of the beaten path creations. The wine... More

OCA offers great decoration and service as well. Personally, I don't appreciate complicated menus because of my food restrictions. They cooked me a mushroom risotto that was not on the menu and I liked it a lot and really appreciated the fact. It's worth a visit.

the food is really good though quite pretencious en it presentation. the chef talended but apparently subject to rather alarming mood swing as he can at time be heard telling off the whole staff.... the place is suprisingly unpopular given the quality of the food.... worth a visit.

I guess we all have to live with the fact that many will highly rate chains/franchises (China Grill) pizza restaurants or food factories (Villa Maria). For those who appreciate great food developed and presented beautifully by a great staff, do not miss OCA. I have been to most of the critically acclaimed/highly rated restaurants in MC, and OCA can go... More

When they ask me: wich restauranti do you recommend in Paris, my answer is l'Atelier de Robuchon. And in Mexico city, which is your favorite. No doubt: Oca. Karen, the owner is a very professional and refined person. Vicent, (he worked at El Bulli,...) is a very talended and creative chef.

We were celebrating two important dates on Sunday and were looking for an extra special place for lunch. Biko, Jaso and Pujol are all closed Sundays. We had not tried Oca so we booked. We arrived for our 3 pm reservation and were the only people there. About 30 minutes later, a table of two came and were seated right... More

The food tastes delicious it`s also very original. The "flor de calabaza " and "peanut butter caramel with a spicy flavor" are a delightful surprise.

Very nice….the experience started a little bit weird; we got there at around 7:30 and there was no one at the restaurant. After sometime we were taken to our seats. I did not like the “botana (appetizers)” , a weird mix of a flower; a “cana de azúcar (sugar cane)” and don’t know what. It took them forever to came... More

The chef was well trained, it shows. Don't expect something exceptionnal, but enjoy the creativity, accept some unfortunate ideas (deserts are arguable), but relax: this is a wonderful and modern atmosphere, trendy and fashion have its price.
