Como Agua Pa' Chocolate Review

Inspired by the book Like Water For Chocolate, this second-story restaurant wears its heart on its sleeve. The pale yellow walls are covered with quotations about food, including, "To table and to bed you need call only once." The food is equally romantic, with a whole section of the menu dedicated to foods like quail in rose-petal sauce (a dish inspired by the book). The best choice, however, is the espejo de moles (a sampler of five different moles over chicken). The tables on the balcony overlooking the Alameda are the best in the house.

    I Expected More

    I expected a lot more. The room was OK, the food was a bit disappointing. The service was impeccable. My partner liked it more: she enjoyed the food. We had the quails in rose petal sauce and Champandongo. Good but underwhelming.

    Como Agua Pa' Chocolate Review

    Beautifully romantic restaurant! Some local ex-pats recommended this place to us, so on our last night in Oaxaca we had dinner here, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The atmosphere was very romantic, lots of candles, and a nice view on the balloon vendors in the park below. The food is definitely a notch above most of the restaurants in town. We had Chiles en nogada and Quails in rose petals, followed by hot chocolates de leche, and I can fully recommend these dishes. We'll definitely be back!
