About the restaurant
Aquí, un ritmo animado acompaña la transparencia de luz que hace vibrar los colores. La sutileza de lo esencial subraya el poder evocador de los olores y sabores que surgen de la cocina de Alejandro Ruiz.

Se mezclan los aromas y los sabores de hierbas mediterráneas con las oaxaqueñas. Así, la albahaca y el romero comparten sus tintes con la hoja santa, la pitiona y el shorobobo. Asimismo, granada, pescados y mariscos, venado y cordero alternan con chapulines, huitlacoche y quesillo.

Cinco sentidos influenciados por una extraordinaria vivencia gastronómica.

About the restaurant
Criollo is located in a neighborhood adjacent to the center of the city of Oaxaca.
Chef Luis Arellano is a cook with a spirit that is both attached to his roots and creative and evolutionary.
He builds the menu adapting to the local products available and the seasons, inspired by the different techniques of Oaxacan cuisine, making nods to the coast, the valleys, the mountains and the Istmo of the state of Oaxaca.
Our breakfast and brunch service is a la carte, however for lunch and dinner we change to a 6-course tasting menu which changes approximately every 2 days.

About the restaurant
Tierra del Sol is a restaurant that takes its name from the Mixtec song, a melody that has become an Oaxacan hymn.
Just like that nostalgic song, this place celebrates in its own way the culture of an exceptional people: the Mixtec or ñuu savi; the first does it with her poetry and the second with her food.
Our chef: Olga Cabrera, cook, is the architect of such gastronomic praise, and she achieves it from the knowledge and respect for an ancient cuisine that she inherited from the women of her family and her community, Huajuapan – in the heart of the Mixteca region of Oaxaca -, a knowledge that seasons with his special passion for traditional dishes.

Food was very good highly recommended points for improvement would be more organisation at the entrance to the restaurant and management oversight of the waiting staff in the dinning room. We got offered other people’s food, our neighbours got offered our water. On arrival the guy at the door just told us to wait and moved away to talk with another colleague in a side room. We felt we interrupted him using his phone. Then another person came to tell us to wait, another couple arrived then yet again another person came out and immediately seated them. Highly strange, didn’t see anyone all evening that had a semblance of a manager directing and instructing staff. This would significantly improve this restaurant. Food was definitely worth the visit.

About the restaurant
Zandunga comenzó en la barra de la cocina, en la sala, el comedor o en el patio, donde la gente llegaba a disfrutar los fines de semana de garnachas y platillos elaborados por Aurora Toledo. En 2002 abrió formalmente sus puertas como restaurante. Hoy en día cuanta con dos restaurantes Zandunga Sabor Istmeño y La Zandunguera donde su compromiso es otorgar a la gastronomía istmeña el lugar que se merece; una de las mejores cocinas del estado de Oaxaca. El patio principal es acogedor, los salones son especiales para momentos inolvidables y la Mezcaleria es una de las mejores selecciones de mezcales de la ciudad

We loved the setting of this restaurant. We only tried the tlayuda, and some drinks - it was delicious. You can even shop after your meal at one of the beautiful shops inside the building.

About the restaurant
Restaurante Catedral brings local, regional and international dishes together to offer a truly unique menu. Start your day off with a breakfast of Teotitlan Del Valle Style eggs or the Socorrido, which is a pork rind casserole with sausage, egg and cheese served in a red sauce with Water Chiles stripes. Restaurante Catedral is the perfect place for a date night. Come enjoy the house specialty of homemade ravioli with Hierba santa that is filled with suckling pork and topped with grated cheese.

About the restaurant
A cargo del chef Luis Pabón y la sommelier Gabriela Moreno, la experiencia gastronómica —que hace eco de la rúbrica de hospitalidad contemplativa deL Hotel Casa TO—, se inspira en un cuidadoso diálogo entre las preparaciones y sus maridajes, donde los fogones y la cava son los medios por los cuales sus anfitriones consienten a los comensales.

Para la cena se han concebido dos menús: uno a la carta y otro para degustar en siete tiempos, maridado con vinos y mezcal.

Las recetas creadas por Pabón rinden un homenaje a la cocina de temporada, brindando protagonismo a la frescura de los productos y sus distintos matices: dulces, ácidos y picantes, enfatizados por el dominio de distintas técnicas de preparación.

Moreno, a su vez, apareja el menú con una selección de vinos Pét Nats, orgánicos, blancos ligeros, naranjas y tintos suaves con bajo contenido de alcohol, también conocidos como vinos glou glou –frescos, jóvenes y divertidos.

The food was spectacular. The only problem we had was we waited almost 30 minutes between the appetizer and the main course.

About the restaurant
Restaurante Casona Sforza abraza un concepto de hospitalidad donde el confort y la elegancia se conjugan en un entorno donde la naturaleza y el diseño estimulan los sentidos.
A cargo de los chefs Andrés Trujillo y Vanessa Franco.
Este nuevo capítulo gastronómico se ha concebido a partir de un auténtico compromiso con la sustentabilidad y el empleo de las más depuradas técnicas de preparación para rendir un homenaje a las bondades del mar y la tierra, al tiempo que se resalta una cocina sincera con la premisa de comer rico y con el producto de la mejor calidad.
La pesca del día, mejillones, pastas frescas y ensaladas son algunas de las opciones del menú principal.
La panadería y la repostería, que se suman a la propuesta culinaria, aportan un toque inédito, pues en la mañana se puede disfrutar de bizcochos que salen de su propio horno, mientras que por la tarde se dispone de postres que cuentan con técnicas refinadas y en los que incorporan mango, mamey y chocol

We originally had a reservation for 11:45 am but when we showed up we didn’t realize they only served breakfast until noon. My husband had his heart set on getting a pizza so our very kind server offered us to come back at 1 pm for lunch (they close the kitchen down from noon to 1 pm). So we sat in their beautiful bar lounge until 1 pm and enjoyed a drink. The ambience of this place was absolutely stunning and it had a great view of the ocean with a lovely ocean breeze. Every single staff member was so warm, welcoming and accommodating. It was our honeymoon celebration so the restaurant offered us a glass of sparkling wine and a pastry which was very nice! We ordered catch of the day ceviche which was delicious, fresh and had a bit of heat from diced jalapeños. We also got their salame pizza which my husband really enjoyed and I got the octopus which was my first time and it was muy bueno! This was a fantastic restaurant and we are glad we went!
