ANCESTRAL fundado en 2017 a cargo del Chef Miguel Mijangos, se encuentra ubicado en el emblemático Barrio de Xochimilco en la Ciudad de Oaxaca.
Nuestra pasión es resaltar las tradiciones y costumbres de Oaxaca a través de su gastronomía, la mezcla de ingredientes locales en nuestra cocina de humo genera aromas y sabores excepcionales que son el pretexto perfecto para estimular los sentidos.
El acueducto construido a mediados del siglo XVIII, las construcciones en adobe y nuestro verde jardín al aire libre forman parte de una increíble experiencia.

    The most memorable dining experiences we’ve had in Oaxaca. The service was impeccable and knowledgeable, the food was exciting and delicious, and the atmosphere was intimate and complimented by soft live music. The attention to detail at Ancestral was truly the highlight of our dinner. So much so, that we returned the next day for drinks and dessert, and we hope to return soon to try more dishes from their menu. Gracias, amigos!

    Vale mucho la pena. Es el rest más rico de Oaxaca, es una delicia todo, como tip el mole está rico si combinas el dulce con el picosito. Muy buen servicio, sin duda regreso. Nos encanto toda la comida
