Lonely Planet review
Locals and visitors alike jam the atmospheric courtyard for delicious nouveau-Oaxacan fusion dishes. The choices are chalked on blackboards – you might start with a turkey tamal in mole negro , follow up with a beef fillet in mezcal with dried plums and pasilla chilies, and finish with the guava with chocolate mousse.
For lighter appetites and budgets, there are quesadillas, soups and quiches for under M$90. There's a great bar too, including draft microbrew beer.
