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.

    Overpriced and mediocre food Way too much production with no success. Better to stick to simple yet savory food Wine list is not up to date. Two requested wines were unavailable. Net… do not recommend

    No tienen alternativa de menú, los precios no están visibles, te ofrecen un costo y al final te cobran un precio diferente. No vale lo que cuesta.

    The food was not worth the price. The room was extremely hot, uncomfortable, and dark. You could not see what you were eating. The tamales were doughy and undercooked - bad for a place in Oaxaca. We finished portions or none of some dishes but were never offered any accommodation. Would not go back or recommend.

    Fuimos a desayunar. Las presentaciones y porciones muy buenas, con muy buen sazón y jugos frescos de temporada. El lugar está muy bonito con vista a un jardín interno.

    Un lugar excepcional. Comida con sabores distintos, el chocolate maravilloso y no puedes dejar de probar el pan. Sus jardines encantan a todos.
