It’s hard to find a bad meal in Oaxaca, which is a great food city, but Pitiona managed to be AWFUL. For being so highly rated, I don’t know what other people were eating, but our meal was terrible. The grilled chicken breast mole was...More

Ambitious restaurant architecture but (strangely) with dyed-napkin lampshades and a mixed collection of paintings. Complex dishes with some hits and some misses. Shrimp ceviche was undercooked—ie, not sliced thin enough or not marinated long enough—but with good shrimp flavor. Grilled shrimp looked like a better...More

Description
Pitiona began with a clear vision: to recuperate the flavors of Oaxacan cuisine from the coast, the Mixtec region and the valley, but with a new twist, of the spoon so to speak, to what is traditional so that our family recipes would not be lost. In an effort to respect, care for and promote our country, all of our products—in and out of the kitchen—are Mexican: from the olive oil to the sea salt and unrefined sugar, from the wine to the mescal. Not only do we surprise you with our cuisine, we also do so with the restaurant’s ambience. That is why Oaxacan artists have made exclusive work to be admired here: Adan Paredes’ ceramics dazzle the walls and Omar Hernandez’s work beautifies our tables. You can also contemplate the art of other Oaxacan artists on a continual basis thanks to the Quetzalli Gallery’s rotating exhibitions.
