Casa Crespo

Open Tuesday - Sunday from 1 p.m. until 11 p.m.
Allende 107, Oaxaca, Mexico

The Basics

There are two ways to experience Casa Crespo: during a meal or during a cooking class which ends with eating the meal you helped prepare. Make lunch or dinner reservations Tuesday through Saturday for the 2pm lunchtime set menu or the evening meal, a 6-course tasting menu.

Alternatively, combine dining with a cooking class; group classes typically include a market tour and begin in the morning, while private options (which include more personalized attention and a customizable menu) start at lunchtime, ending with dinner at Casa Crespo. Both Spanish- and English-language options are available.
