It was a very cold night we ate at Azul and as most of the restaurant is in open air it made our meal a little chilly! The onion soup was superior and the main course of quail was also was good. However, when one...More

Rather expensive for the value received. We found better all-around restaurants. There are so many choices where we found better value.

The food and service were both excellent and I could murder the mezcal cocktails all day long. It's on the expensive side but for my money, worth it.

We read the reviews and had higher expectations - Small boutique hotel with Ok food, that's it - would not go back unless someone else was paying.

Fantastic selection of local fare with a fantastic weekend brunch using the "Kemal" to cook outside. Go, go, go to eat at Hotel Azul!

The service was great and the food was fine. It wasn't amazing or particularly creative. It was typical oaxacan fare in an environment that's a bit more chic than average.More

This became our favourite restaurant for dinner and we kept going back. Food is excellently prepared, interesting, and a good Mexican-International fusion. Breakfast was OK but nothing special.

With the Slow Food concept, our Executive Chef has acomplished a perfect balance between flavors, tradition and support of the local economy. The menu convines traditional Oaxaca recipes, with inovative recipes that uses local ingredients creating surprises for the palate. And to accompany some of the dishes without a doubt we recomend to taste the exclusive mezcal that has been elaborated by artisans for Azul de Oaxaca.
