Last week we were in Oaxaca and our Mexican friends insisted that we had lunch at this "best in the city" place to sample their "fantastic" Oaxacan specialties. We are travellers and have been to the five continents and eaten at countless places, experienced from...More

Is just delicious!, everything is really well prepared, the service is very good too. If you like bananas and sweet- salty food you will love "molotes de platano", "tlayudas" are also very good option.

The food was OK, the drinks also OK, the scenery and snorkeling amazing. BUT I HATE sitting on chairs whose legs are 4 inches into the sand. Impossible to move, impossible to sit level. Need a platform for the chairs.

A party of six of us ate here in October while visiting Oaxaca for day of the dead. I had a roasted meat dish, I forget which one, which tells you something, because I do love Oaxacan food. There was very little or nothing, I...More

With authentic Oaxacan cuisine and a location above the fray, you should spend the extra pesos for a visit here. It's not outrageously expensive, and the location and quality more than make up for the difference in cost. With framed pictures of the area in...More
