The meal was delicious, the service was great, and the portions were not overwhelming. Some of us weren't feeling tip top and the soup was exactly what we needed. They also had a good beer selection. My family was so happy to find this :)

Between the cool decor, warm staff, tasty food and wide selection of craft beer and local mezcal, this place is the perfect stop to have lunch and cool down during a hot summer day!

Oh, i don't know. But worth calling or emailing them to ask. If not, maybe call their hotel to see if they can arrange something special.

Description
I ate at many of the restaurants listed in trip advisor over an 8 day period in Oaxaca. Decided to try this place because it was always crowded with the mixture of Mexican and non Mexican tourists. The food was from the isthmus of Mexico. Authenic but different than the usual Oaxacan cuisine which became repetitious after a while. The food was different, with a lot of " I wonder how they make this sauce, dip, drink?" It was not fusion gitzy food that a lot of the higher rated restaurants on your trip advisor restaurant list present to the tourists.
