Bad bad service too slow and just bad food. Food was spoiled and waiter acted like it was a wrong to inform them not to serve it. We were there to enjoy the night, this place was recommended not happy. Location is great and the setting is just beautiful. Bad bad food

Excellent restaurant to try the surprising flavors from the Oaxacan cuisine. A wide variety of authentic dishes, some very hot and others no so hot. Make sure to ask the waiters. Very good service, good food and great prices. Don't miss this spot in downtown Santa Cruz.

Oaxaca is known as a foodie paradise, and El Sabor de Oaxaca offers some of these delights to the crowds of Huatulco. We were pleased to see that the place is not only popular with international tourists, but with Mexican ones as well - always a good sign of food quality. We shared the Enmoladas of oaxacan cheese and chicken... More

Not rude just not interacting with their customers) We ordered the share plate (450) & 2... More

We really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant . We started with Quesillo in red sauce which was a local cheese in a tomato sauce (tasty). I had the Mole Negro which was delicious and much worth the visit in itself. My family were less adventurous having enchiladas and quesadillas. We had a couple glasses of sangria and a coke... More

We saw the restaurant while in town shopping and decided to go back in for dinner and get the sampler platter as it had a good variety and was meant for 2 to share. We ordered the sampler and our friends ordered grilled chicken and filet tacos. The food was very good! The sampler platter was really enough for 4,... More
