I came, I ate, I dined and went to heaven. I hadn't really paid attention to Origen until a food tour guide in Mexico City and also a food critic from Chile said: "You're going to Oaxaca? You must visit Origen." I'm so glad I followed their advice and at a Origen on a fairly quiet Sunday evening (we arrived... More

My friend and I arrived at 7 p.m. tonight. We had reservations, as I told the young man....he seemed to be puzzled. I told him my name was Linda.....we are the only 2 people in the restaurant at this time....He seems more confused and says, 'Federico?' Since we are both women and LOOK like women, I had to laugh and... More

We've had the good fortune to eat here on a previous trip to Oaxaca. Last night we were just as impressed. Not only is the service friendly & helpful, they are just the right amount of attentive. Our meals were outstanding - all you could hear at the table were murmurs of contentment and appreciation. We'll return on our next... More

We spent 8 days in Oaxaca and this was our favorite restaurant. We had both lunch and dinner here and found both meals exceptional. Good variety of options, excellent flavors and presentation. Both local and more generic dishes. For food of this quality the prices were very reasonable. The chef was the winner of Top Chef Mexico.

Ate here on our last night in Oaxaca and enjoyed the food. The restaurant is small and the menu is very focused. They have well thought out mezcal cocktails.

Chose this spot for our one 'fine dining' experience in Oaxaca this trip. It just fell completely flat. The food was uninspired, the service was disinterested (even by Oaxaca standards), and we couldn't finish and pay fast enough to go somewhere else to get some flavorful food. I'm not a negative reviewer generally, but this was a less than acceptable... More
