I preferred the restaurant next door (Biznaga), which is touch less tourist-oriented and has a semi-outdoors dining room, but still had a pleasant meal at Zandunga and the service is certainly better than what next door offers.

While the place looks quite simple, the food is amazing, try the cocktails they will surprise you. If you visit Oaxaca, this is a must.

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.
