Ok. I admit this will be a partial review. We ate here on one night and took the cooking class with Rudolfo and his mother two days later. The chef, Rudolfo is clearly a genius and I touch with his palate and his heritage. His...More

This was by far the best dinner we had in Oaxaca. We had been told about it by friends who had recently visited Oaxaca and were soooo glad we ate there. Do not miss this one!

After reading other reviews, I tried this place. Service was good and the food was good. However, it is overpriced. The same quality food is offered for much less in other restaurants. However, they have unique food so I would try it.

We had seven courses, wine, two desserts, and met the chef. The total bill was 1050 MXN or about $50 USD. Yeah, I can’t believe it either. We had flying ants salsa. I mean they weren’t flying any more, poor things. We had a wild...More
