Our group of 4 wasted a dining opportunity in Oaxaca by going to Casa Crespo Saturday night. We should have left when our waitress told us that many of the items on the menu were not available -- and we were there early. What finally came to our table was HEAVILY breaded and/or greasy, dry and stale. This place may... More

Really worthwhile going for a cooking lesson; its good fun and Oscar makes an effort to help you learn how to adapt ingredients to cook at home. The restaurant is also open for bookings for dinner.

Gorgeous rooftop views with al fresco dining. Wonderful local cuisine prepared by an award-winning chef. Cooking school offered there too. It was a bit chilly in the evening in late October so we suggest taking a wrap with you.

This rooftop bar and restaurant has excellent views of the cathedral and a friendly staff. The rooftop is not particularly well lit so you might struggle to see your food unfortunately. The stone soup was the reason I came. Seafood soup prepared cold and then heated by the waiter by your table by placing an extremely hot stone into the... More

Fuimos a este lugar porque lo sugerido en una guía. Si bien tiene una linda terraza con vista a Santo Domigo, la comida no tiene nada de especial y el lugar estaba desocupada. Adicionalmente, los precios son muy elevados en comparación con otros restaurante. Habiendo tantas buenas opciones para comer en Oaxaca, no recomendaría este restaurante. We visited this place...

We went there based on a very positive review from one of the best-selling guide book and it was more than a disappointment. The service was very slow and unfriendly. We tried the specialty recommended in that famous guide book, the "caldo de piedra" : a shrimp-and-fish soup cooked at your table by a pre-Hispanic method using hot stones inside... More
