Of all the fancy and not-so-fancy restaurants we tried in Oaxaca, Pitiona was by far-and-away the best. Only a pedestrian appetizer of ceviche of octopus and pork that badly needed both salt and lime juice keeps me from giving Pitiona a five dot rating. Without...More

This was only disappointment we had in Oaxaca, which is a city known for its great food. It is an upscale restaurant, but the space itself is cold and uninviting. The food is beautifully displayed and very good, but servings are sparce. If you order...More

We had a memorable 7 course meal at Pitonia. One of the higher end restaurants, but even then a good value, with a quiet, elegant ambience and delicious food. We'd recommend it for a special meal in Oaxaca. Located close to Santo Domingo.

This is a fun restaurant and not hard to get into without a reservation because it is so big. Definitely try the tasting menu again because it is fun. The food is displayed so nicely that you feel very special with every course.

Just go if you want traditional Oaxacan food with great taste, high style and fantastic service. There is a reason Pitiona gets high marks in reviews. One of our best meals in Oaxaca. Make reservations. A must during busy times.

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.
