Great location, very good ambiance, the menu has tasty local dishes with a gourmet twist, the wine selection is interesting. The service was good, average waiting time. Price is fair. There was live music but played at a proper volume. Reservation is needed in peak season. We had and excellent time!

We had dinner here on a Saturday night at 7 o'clock without reservations. We managed to get in and had an amazing experience. Serenaded very softly By a guitar player/singer. Soup, salad, and main course were all excellent as was the desert. We will definitely come here again.

Even the bread they brought to the table was delicious (one filled with... More

This is a very nice restaurant. It composes of a few rooms and an open air courtyard. We were a bit apprehensive at first since we did not see any people in the rooms. Turns out they were all in the court yard. The food were great with a good selection of mole. The night we were there, there was... More

We needed a reservation to be in the courtyard, but it was worth it. Lovely music, fabulous service and the food was excellent.

Impossible to go wrong here. The service is lovely-- linen table cloth; outside dining that feels intimate; prompt attention; We tried so many dishes here, that I can't single out one. My husband and daughter had great mixed drinks...a margarita with mezcal.. Who knew? If you weren't in Oaxaca, you would guess Tuscany, because of the delicious pastas. We had... More

We went here because of the reviews. We made the mistake of not making sure we were on the interior patio area. Instead we were seated in a room to the side with full daylight lighting (for dinner). Felt more like a dining hall than a fine dining restaurant. So not feeling a good vibe we had a server that... More

On so many occasions we have walked by this restaurant thinking it might be too dear for our budget travel. But, overall it is a reasonable price for excellent food. No problems accommodating a larger group. Beautiful courtyard.
