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

I celebrated my birthday here tonight, and I had one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. They accommodated me after being 45 minutes late to my reservation, and treated my friend and I so well. Every single person was so kind and welcoming, it was so refreshing to be in such wonderful company. All of the dishes we ordered were perfect, and I felt so amazing. Great ambiance and plating. I had such a great time, and will absolutely come back when I’m in town again.

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.

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.

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.

Interesting. Great they had a menu in English, much appreciated. Servers were very polite and genuine. Initial contact after welcoming us was delayed. Home made guacamole table side was excellent but we still didn’t have napkins and silver ware which we had to ask for!! Food took some time but was excellent. The weird thing was my wife’s entree arrived with my appetizer (as she was not having an appetizer)!! It worked for us as she eats slowly but never seen that before unless they asked us. Great spot for sure with much talent. Just either listen to the street musician OR the in house music. Having both doesn’t work.

About the restaurant
Few dining experiences are as revered as Omakase.
Chef Keisuke Harada was lured to Puerto Escondido from Kyoto Japan to set up Kakurega Omakase, where he carefully executes the finest ingredients into an extraordinary work of art in front of visitors. Immersed in the Oaxacan jungle and next to Hotel Escondido, Kakurega Omakase features a simple, elegant design where nature and food collide.

*ALL PAID RESERVATIONS ARE NONREFUNDABLE / CANCELLABLE OR MODIFICATION*

*THE PRICE INCLUDES THE 15% OF SERVICE*

**AFTER 15 MINUTES THE SERVICE STARTED, THE ENTRANCE TO THE OMAKASE IS NOT ALLOWED**

note: If you are comming from Puerto Escondido, please consider 90 minutes of eta.

The value of this experiences is tied to the uniqueness allowed by its location. With local sourced ingredients, a menu that incorporates local flavors and traditions in an Omakase setting, prepared with great care by the Chef, this is definitely a must if you’re able to go. Food was delicious, the drink pairings were just enough to complement the food but not overwhelm you with alcohol or make you feel too full to continue. Really recommend splurging for it. Price is fair for what it supports but cheaper outings are available in the city itself and it would be unfair to compare it with a major city’s Omakase. This is a unique experience at Punta Pájaros, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca which we highly recommended!

About the restaurant
Criollo is a space that invites you to share and coexist around the Oaxacan cuisine of product, simple and honest, under the command of chef Luis Arellano, a chef with a spirit both attached to his roots and creative and evolutionary. Our menu changes daily, based on local and seasonal ingredients.
