A very modern motif for a Mexican restaurant. Don't expect tacos and enchiladas here! Service and menu were unbelievable. The red snapper (huachinango) dish was delicious as was the 'smoked' salad. Full bar. Interesting cocktails!More

I really want to give this place four stars, and it certainly deserves it for the food. The smoked salad, shrimp carpaccio, pork jowl and other dishes were excellent, some sensational. The theatrical chocolate forest desert was most definitely style over substance however, and my...More

Description
Pitiona began with a clear vision: to recuperate the flavors of Oaxacan cuisine from the coast, the Mixtec region and the valley, but with a new twist, of the spoon so to speak, to what is traditional so that our family recipes would not be lost. In an effort to respect, care for and promote our country, all of our products—in and out of the kitchen—are Mexican: from the olive oil to the sea salt and unrefined sugar, from the wine to the mescal. Not only do we surprise you with our cuisine, we also do so with the restaurant’s ambience. That is why Oaxacan artists have made exclusive work to be admired here: Adan Paredes’ ceramics dazzle the walls and Omar Hernandez’s work beautifies our tables. You can also contemplate the art of other Oaxacan artists on a continual basis thanks to the Quetzalli Gallery’s rotating exhibitions.
