Es un buen lugar con grandes ingredientes y una gran atención, pero tal vez yo esperaba demasiado.
Es una buena experiencia, pero Oaxaca tiene lugares con mejores sabores y experiencias.
Nos la pasamos increíble comimos delicioso y tuvimos el honor de conocer al chef y platicar con el sobre sus panes etc
So yummy! Our favorite meal in Oaxaca. The set menu changes every night, and they can accommodate dietary restrictions.
Excelente lugar Jesus quien esta a cargo extraordinario. Se entiende que es Oaxaca por lo que si pretendes ir a Criollo a cenar administra la alimentación durante la mañana para que disfrutes completamente el menu.
The food here just isn’t good. I was expecting an amazing meal and was heartbroken. People were great and everything but they should stop changing the menu every night or something.
Amazing food, service, and ambiance
It’s a must when visiting Oaxaca. Overall it is great.
Fantastic spot to enjoy the atmosphere of Oaxaca and it delicious food.
Great food! This place is a must to visit if you are a foodie and in Oaxaca. Compliments to the chef. Choice of drinks with our meal could have been slightly better, I felt as if they did not exactly fit the flavour of the dishes on the tasting menu. My advice is to go for the tasting menu without the drinks and order them separately.
Increíble experiencia. Ingredientes mexicanos fusionados con técnica francesa. Todos los platillos son una delicia. El ambiente es tranquilo, perfecto para una cena romántica. El servicio es impecable.
En general es una buena experiencia. El maridaje, el espacio y servicio son increíbles. No iría por la comida la cual calificaría de regular.
We were expecting a lot but honestly it disappointed. The place is really grate but the service and food were just flat. In the tasting menu nothing was really spectacular or amazing, in fact it was kind of boring... Regarding the service, our waitress was lazy, without that exciting for explaining every dish or cocktail.
Hope these kind of comments help you to be better next time.
Super rico y agradable :) linda casa, super buen ambiente y el personal muy atento. La comida riquísima.
Lo recomendaría y volvería pronto :)
A uniquely special dining experience enhanced by a quintessential Oaxacan vibe. The food was out of this world, service impeccable, and completely unpretentious.
Went for a family Sunday brunch; we were seated in the patio, surrounded by a colonial vibe.
Menu is short but you can find enough options to try local food. Presentation, quality and flavor are exquisite while maintaining the original dish spirit.
You will feel the warm by the staff since entering through their kitchen and until you leave the house.
Excelente restaurante!! La comida deliciosa, mucha amabilidad, buen ambiente y unas bebidas deliciosas!! Felicidades! Da gusto comer en lugares así!!
Dissapointed about the service....
Food was fantastic and great value for this price.
Excellent, inventive food and lovely patio setting with a gorgeous garden.
Overall it was pretty good. I really liked all of the savory courses. I mentioned it was our honeymoon. It was a little annoying when they sat a really obnoxious party of six right next to us in an otherwise empty dining room. Other than that the service was friendly. It was louder than I thought it would be. Still definitely worth checking out.
It was not as good as we had hoped. The service was inconsistent, the food was good, and the atmosphere was nice.
Excelente ligar,atención y comida
Really fun, tasting menu makes you try things you might not ordinarily order. Delicious!
Always a relaxed and fun meal. Thank you
Realmente mejor de lo que nos esperábamos, después de visitar otros restaurantes en Oaxaca quedamos convencidos de que Criollo está entre los mejores. El servicio es impecable, los alimentos deliciosos, el ambiente muy agradable, la decoración sencilla y discreta. Conocimos el área del bar que se antoja para quedarse a tomar un par de buenos mezcales de la casa o un rico cóctel.
Me parece que la carta de vinos podría ser un poco más amplia tanto en cantidad de etiquetas como en precios, dar unas cuantas más opciones al cliente entre el precio más bajo y el siguiente nivel que es 50% más caro que el otro.
Gracias por sus atenciones, seguramente volveremos.
Everyone there was super accommodating :)
We were a 15 people friend group for brunch and all staff and food worked for us.
Pricey and nothing “wow”... food is ok, much better options out there to taste real Oaxaca food.
Very expensive. Overpriced food. The food was ok but nothing to write home about.
La experiencia es buena, en general la comida y el menú es rico. Nos toco un evento y desafortunadamente había mucho ruido.
Hubo 1 tiempo que no fuimos fan, un taco de lechuga que estaba bastante plano y no generaba ninguna explosión de sabores. Lamentablemente por el precio que pagamos consideramos que debemos ser exigentes en la calificación.
Seven course prefix meal was wonderful. The waitress was delightful and explained each dish. It was a series of test sensations from start to finish. The restaurant but it’s open or courtyard is a delightful environment. It was a bit cool that evening and saw the restaurant provided shells for the women and blankets for the men. All in all, it truly delightful dining experience and heartily recommend it
I had an amazing solo birthday lunch at Criollo. They were so accommodating with my mostly vegan but eat fish but no shellfish requirements and adjusted the tasting menu to suit me. Everything was so fresh and delicious. The local flavours were bursting through in every mouthful but not over-powering at all. I also tried the 2 cocktails of the day and they were the right balance of everything. Definitely come here to get spoilt by the wonderful people at Criollo
What a lovely experience dining at Criollo. From the moment we walking in - we felt welcome and warm. We didn’t know before arriving that it was a tasting menu only restaurant - which kind of bummed us out because initially we were only going for a quick snack. I wish this information was given to us upon making the reservation. Our server Ivan was one of the best, super warm, friendly, and giving us all the information we could possibly need. The food was well curated and the drinks we both had were great! We enjoyed most of the dishes, and respected how much care went into creating them. We got a tour of the grounds and even got to sit in their back garden for dessert! Service slowed down once we moved because I feel they forgot about us for a bit. But they were extremely thoughtful in that when they did remember we were there, they brought us some bug spray for the mosquitos. Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Oaxaca. Definitely the classiest experience you’ll get throughout the city. Thank you to the team at Criollo for everything!
This was our second time at Criollo and it did not disappoint! This time time we did the beverage pairing with the tasting menu and it was fantastic. I would highly recommend people go and try it out. seating in the patio is wonderful. Loved it!
Una experiencia maravillosa
Recommended by a friend from Oaxaca. The food and service was excellent! I’ll definitely return on my next trip here.
Outstanding food, service, space, ambiance. Definitely will be back and try the breakfasts. The chef Luis captures the love in Mexican food, making you warm in the heart and in love on your palate. It was the best dinner in a long time. Thanks to all at Criollo!
Vielleicht waren unsere Erwartungen an das Essen zu hoch nach den ganzen positiven Ankündigungen und der Enttäuschung, dass wir im Quintonil in Mexico City keinen Platz bekommen hatten ... Vielleicht liegt es auch daran, dass wir nicht wirklich Fans der Oaxaca-Küche sind, die wir als sehr schwer und wenig Differenziert empfinden. Daher die nur mittlere Bewertung des Essens, das aber sehr liebe- und geschmackvoll dargeboten wurde. Es war wegen des Ambientes, des Services und der sehr guten alkoholfreien Getränke und dem Kennenlerneffekt der Oaxaca Küche dennoch ein sehr schönes Erlebnis. Das Preisniveau ist allerdings sehr hoch - auch im Vergleich zu deutschen sehr guten Restaurants.
Great brunch and amazing atmosphere! Definitely recommended
Diseño del lugar padrísimo, entras por la cocina y todos de saludan como si fueras de la familia. Te preparan las tortillas al momento (deli). El menú de degustación va cambiando cada día, en general buen sazón y concepto. Vale la pena ;)
