When you try to place on one menu, two different restaurants, you will face two big challenges, first the quality has to be outstanding and second balance of two kitchens This is what happened when Barro Negro and Casa Loredo join to offer traditional Mexican food, which does not compite within but is a complement to one another We visited...

A friend and I visited the place for a Wednesday evening meal. The service was very good and the meals were excellent and very diverse. A good option for Mexican cuisine!

I had my first Chiles en nogada here, this was my first visit to Mexico and i tried all this type of food, but the best has to be this dish. I was explained how special it is, how much work it requires to have done and that it is only available during certain time of the year. And of... More

Used to be an excellent option for Mexican food "Oaxaqueña". It increased prices by more than 30% and decreased ingredients quality. Mains were cold and dry. Starters also lacked the usual taste.

The decor was Spanish, very dark wood, well maintained. The staff are very professional. I had the mole for which they are known.

It is a great place to try the traditional cuisine of Mexico City. The mole was truly mouth watering and the food was excellent. yes, it can be on the pricey side in comparison to other restaurants but the quality is what I went here for and it did not disappoint.

This is a charming place, with a beautiful atmosphere and a great design...but just that. The service is very inefficient and the food is just the worst Oxacan food I have ever tried. The meat tastes like it has been frozen for a very long time and the mole sauce is definitely not the best. The quality is very poor,... More

The restaurant is good, but not great. And for the quality, it is on the expensive side. Their mole are good, but not the best. Their fish is good, but not the best. Their Tlayuda (kind of a pizza on a crispy tortilla) is good, but not great. It is true however that their cucumber and blackberry Mescaltinis (cocktail with... More

The menu is filled with traditional Meixco dishes which you may have found intriguing if you came across them at a market, or a street vendor but you didn't feel brave enough to try them. They have things like Escamoles (Ants Eggs) and Chapulines (Grasshoppers) and because of the way the waiter described them we gave them a try. They... More
