Wonderful location, especially if you can get a table overlooking the zócalo. My husband had chicken a la plancha with salad and French fries and thought it was very good. I had Chile’s rellenos, and they were just so-so. The batter was soggy with grease...More

When I have a chance to travel to Oaxaca, on business or for pleasure, I always look for a chance to visit this place. There's nothing extraordinary about it: It's just a nice place, with fantastic view of El Zócalo, great service and good food....More

I took the tasting of moles and was perfect! Starter were stuffed pumpkin flowers. Very tasty! Views are nice and so is the staff. They tend to close early as I was denied at 2100 hrs the day before.

La Casa de la Abuela has been on the Zocalo for many years. It's upstairs. Be sure to ask for tables which overlook the Zocalo or the adjacent plaza by the cathedral. The food is traditional Oaxaca, nothing modern here, but good.

Collectively, we tried three different moles here (coloradito, amarillo, almendrado). The chicken the mole came on was good, the pork was average, the amarillo came on steak/beef which was some pretty complex anatomy and difficult to work with. I'd be tempted to stick with the...More
