Mole with grilled chicken was every bit as good as home cooking I have had up in the mountains. Black re fried beans and fresh corn chip and salsas (plural). Very economically priced

I tried the chicken mole here and I was impressed. It was a complex, rich mole, with a wide range of spices and flavours (including, yes, a wee bit of chocolate). Service was good (I had a bilingual English-Spanish server) and the dining room was well decorated and spacious.

Bad bad service too slow and just bad food. Food was spoiled and waiter acted like it was a wrong to inform them not to serve it. We were there to enjoy the night, this place was recommended not happy. Location is great and the setting is just beautiful. Bad bad food

Excellent restaurant to try the surprising flavors from the Oaxacan cuisine. A wide variety of authentic dishes, some very hot and others no so hot. Make sure to ask the waiters. Very good service, good food and great prices. Don't miss this spot in downtown Santa Cruz.

Not rude just not interacting with their customers) We ordered the share plate (450) & 2... More
