We really enjoyed our dinner here and will definitely go back!

Nice wine and great selection of drinks.

Food was delicious. Great shrimp pasta in the best cream sauce I've had in a while!

Partner had the beef in mezcal/citrus sauce and it was cooked to order and very tasty.

Staff are friendly, food service. Really nice atmosphere, lighting and decor.

This place is really a mezcaleria that serves food to go with your mezcal cocktails. The place is quite beautiful and the decor lovely, but the food was extremely disappointing and we would not return again. We had the noodle soup, ceviche and octopus. The soup was tasteless, the ceviche awful with very little fish and much too much acid. The saving grace was the octopus which was tasty and well cooked, but 1 out of 3 is not good enough. We will certainly not return given there are loads of much better restaurants in Oaxaca.

The service here really left something to be desired but the food was pretty good. The drinks were where they really shined though. Lots of mescal options to choose from and interesting mixtures.

On my first day back in Oaxaca I stumbled into Expendio Tradicion for brunch after a thirty hour trip from Australia. The chilaquiles were a delight to my senses and the ambience was calm and welcoming! I’ll be here for a month and I’ll definitely be back!
