    el 60 % de nuestros platillos fueron chilaquiles para desayunar, las salsas muy buenas, pero la tortilla estaba muy mala, mal dorada y chiclosa... el pan muy bueno, definitivamente no regresaría, porque es un grave problema.

    Four of us dined here on our second night in Oaxaca. It was an easy walk from the hotel and has a good menu of mezcal cocktails. We had done a mezcal tasting the night before so wanted to branch out. We each started with a different cocktail. They were all very good, but the margarita was the best. Dinner was very good. We shared a mixture of small tortillas for starters. I continues with just starters. The dorado ceviche was lovely and the traditional mushroom soup fantastic. Two others had the pork torta which was basically pulled pork on a bun; also very well done. We had read in another review that they had food wine - not true!! Only a house red or white, both unpalatable. The only real issue of the evening came when we went to pay the bill and their machine would not work on anyone’s credit card. Luckily we had enough cash to cover the bill.

    DJ came on in the middle of dinner service - not just loud but obnoxious music choices while people are eating and talking. Can’t imagine who thought this was a good idea. Food was not anything I hope to experience again...truly a culinary disappointment. Did like my drink from the bar.

    Made a reservation for NYE on opentable, and confirmed online as I usually do. When I arrived for dinner they did not have a table reserved for me. When I showed them my confirmation email they said that ‘Open table does not respect that it is New Year’s Eve and should not have let you make the reservation.’
