True Mexican food and most tasty

This charming place is in an old building and has fine old paintings on the walls. The food is traditional and the selection is good. We found it to be some of the best and tastiest food we have had in a two week visit to Mexico. The different moles are fantastic - try a different one for each... read more

I came to this restaurant with five family members and high expectations based on prior reviews, but the restaurant was a bit of a letdown. When we first arrived at about 7pm on a Monday night, it seemed empty and no one was near the entrance to greet us as we entered. We wondered if it was open. (Finding no... More

We loved this restaurant located in the Barrio Antiguo (oldest part of the city center)! We had read good reviews and decided to give it a try. As soon as we got into the restaurant we loved its style and decoration. As appetizers we ordered the "caldo de hongos silvestres y cilantro" (wild mushroom and cilantro soup) and the "suspiro...

I was surprised that Madre Oaxaca wasn't ranked higher among restaurants in Monterrey by TripAdviser...because it might be the finest restaurant in town. This ranking must be due to the few number of reviews, only three, so I'm adding one more. 

 Whenever my wife and I want a really special meal -- like a birthday celebration or one of... More

This place looks nice. I took my date here. We order chapulines with avocado and 'Mole degustacion' which was good. I recommend to have spanish music here. The service was ok and the food was ok too. Although kind of small amount. It is kind of expensive.

This place was amazing. I was wandering about Barrio Antiguo one afternoon when a friend called me up and advised I try Madre Oaxaca. It ended up being a little more than I had anticipated spending for lunch, but was delicious. I ordered the Degustacion of Mole, which was a plate that had four fried corn tortilla bowls on the...
