Just walked in on a Sunday night with no reservations and after a 5 minute wait we were seated upstairs. We didn't have the overlook view, but as it was a windy night that was all right. Fantastic drinks menu and fast efficient service. We had the stone soup - cooked at your table, and the wild mushroom soup. To... More

Beautiful place with great Oaxaca flavor. Located in the heart of Oaxaca downtown, this restaurant will give you one of the best Oaxaca culinary experience. Try the roof tables for the visual and romantic experience, Good wine lists, live music sets the perfect atmosphere. I felt the service really slow but staff is very friendly. Price is super fair.

Our expectations were high for what is often billed Oaxaca's best restaurant. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. We had reserved a seat on the patio over two months ahead and, when we got there, the hostess told me those seats were taken and offered to seat us somewhere else. I demurred that we would wait, if necessary, for our reservation and... More

We've been eating in Oaxaca for a week in restaurants of all types, and this is the only one at which the salt overwhelmed the dishes, when at the others I often wondered whether some of the dishes might need a little more salt. The four of us started with soups, and while we all ate the soup, we also... More

This place ranks high for all the right reasons. Amazing atmosphere, great service, decent cocktails, and the food is fantastic. Over the course of a few days I made sure to go back a second time. Both visits were equally perfect. The menu is heavy on meat dishes, but they also cater to dietary restrictions, vegetarian in my case. The... More

Due to the fame this restaurant had received internationally, I and my wife had to check out the great cuisine by Alejandro Ruiz. We were not disappointed at all! The food was a great fusion of local tastes with a touch on uniqueness! We tried Stone Soup and it was awesome! If you are in Oaxaca City then you have... More

Delicious food and the lovely environment. Make reservations if you want to eat in the upstairs Terrace. We got there at 4 o'clock and without reservations and had to sit downstairs. The food was great, downstairs looks nice but the terrace would've been perfect.

Always worry that a restaurant close to tourist centre and high end hotels are over-rated. But Casa Oaxaca was great. Wonderful location and atmosphere on a roof top deck overlooking the walls of the Cathedral. High end Mexican food. Though I had had it with grasshoppers and worms, if you are seeking that out this menu has it in creative... More

Really really good food and really awesome location and staff. I highly recommend this experience. If the weather is good (it usually is) make sure you get a table on the roof. The both have shade and heaters available.

This is a haute Mexican cuisine restaurant in a neighbourhood called Reforma, not far from Oaxaca old town. The area itself is pleasant and chock a block with nice little restaurants. This one struck us because of its pleasant patio and sophisticated menu options. And we were certainly not disappointed! The fare was creative and very delicious. The service was... More
