This restaurant is small (3 -4 tables only) but the food it serves is excellent. It seems to be catering to locals not the tourists. However, the food is very good and authentic. Price is also very reasonable.

This was the best meal during our stay in Oaxaca. The Plato Ismeño is fantastic, the chile relleno, the estofado, the enmoladas, and the house mezcal, all excellent. We went back the next day. Make reservations!

Traditional food from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, all made when you order, all delicious. A garden area available when it's not too chilly or rainy. Wonderful art, and great service.
