It is a bit out of the way, but the food is authentic and tasty. Good prices. Not a fancy place, but it is worth a visit, The enchiladas de mole negro were very good, and some roasted bananas were also very good,

Great value, great food (ask for the tasting menu) location wrong on trip advisor map... Food is from around Oaxaca, great mole, and really good service. Can't recommend highly enough if you want good local food

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.
