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

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...
