Zandunga offers good food in a confortable, friendly atmosphere. Service was excellent. Staff was attentive, and offered good recommendations. Had a great introduction to the complexities of mescal, the local liqour made from the agave plant.

We went here at 7:00 on a Monday night without a reservation. We were greeted warmly and got the last free table. At home, we hadn't quite acquired a taste for Mezcal, but this place's specialty was a Mezcal Maragarita. So... when in Oaxaca... that's...More

Oh, i don't know. But worth calling or emailing them to ask. If not, maybe call their hotel to see if they can arrange something special.

I ate at many of the restaurants listed in trip advisor over an 8 day period in Oaxaca. Decided to try this place because it was always crowded with the mixture of Mexican and non Mexican tourists. The food was from the isthmus of Mexico. Authenic but different than the usual Oaxacan cuisine which became repetitious after a while.
The food was different, with a lot of " I wonder how they make this sauce, dip, drink?" It was not fusion gitzy food that a lot of the higher rated restaurants on your trip advisor restaurant list present to the tourists.
