Top notch jazz music graciously hosted by legendary trumpet player Luis Gasca. Fantastic entertainment at a renowned restaurant. Try the Ensalada Hagia Sofia for a scrumptious locally sourced salad.

In a small town I was surprised to hear high quality music featuring international artists booked by Louie Gasca, a legend in his time. As an added treat, the food and the service is top drawer. I'll be back! Don't miss this...the only first rate...More

Best atmosphere, service, music and food. I recommend the beef bourguignon and red wine, the sealed tuna is outstanding and the creme brulee along with the desserts are excellent.

Oaxaca is known for its culinary delights and L'Echalote certainly fills this billing. I ordered some beef medallions while my wife had grilled fish with a sweet and sour sauce. Both meals were wonderful and the bill was around $20US. Incredible!
