Great atmosphere. Authentic Mexican food prepared with real skill and imagination. Highlight for us was the platanos machos (plantain) with mezcal, which was amazing. Very good value too given the quality of the food.

Our family enjoyed a very tasty and memorable Oaxacan dining experience here. The mezcal, salsas, meats, cheeses and vegetables were all delicious. And we enjoyed excellent service from Samuel. He is very knowledgeable, attentive and easily spoke to our family in both Spanish and English.

We found this charming friendly restaurant to be a great place to explore local Oaxacan food. You can taste various rypes of mole, grasshopper dishes and various mescals. THe ambience is nice - a mix of locals and tourists.

The atmosphere is about the only good point of this place. My wife had one "specialty of the house"--the 3 mole dinner and it was one of the worst moles she's ever had. My tlayuda was dry and tasteless. The service was a bit overbearing...More
