Enjoyed it last ski season and decided to take a different group there this year. The service is attentive, cheerful and fun. The drinks sublime. The food either off the menu or the specials creative and delicious. Oaxacan chicken in a mole sauce, Pork tacos, and chicken tamales are great.

It's not easy to find, even when you know where it is.

an average rating for average food. I found our food not fresh. It was deliciously made, but you can tell when the ingredients are not fresh. The guacamole was brownish meaning it had been sitting around a day. The tamales were delicious as was the bean soup. Had potential to be excellent, but the staleness was obvious.

Just finished our 4th visit to this partially hidden gem in Aspen. The commitment to really creative Oxaca influenced offerings is impressive and well executed. The queso appetizer and the guac are great starters and the duck and skirt steak meals were well spiced and delicious...the mousse dessert is required

This little place is tucked away underground. Its small and cozy. The decorations are similar to those of the region where the food is from. The food was really good.

My husband and I were looking for a 'new' place to have dinner in Aspen. Our criteria......someplace we hadn't been before (check), interesting/good food (triple check), reasonable price (double check) and fun environment (double check).....

The service, starting with our welcome, introduction to the premise and goals of the chef, were awesome. Very interesting variety of food - don't come here if you desire no spice, tamed down Latin American food. The dishes are thoughtful, layered and subtle flavors, very well done.

The dishes we had - calamari stipuffed with chorizo and herbs, topped with a tomatillo salsa - and my huband's short rib dish with mole and potatoes.....were out of this world.

Great service, drinks, overall 5 star experience....thank you, we will be back and definitely recommend to our friends!
