We came here cuz we saw a lot of good reviews about this place. We ordered mole and was the poorest mole we ever had according to the price. The horchata water is not good enough, I guess La Michoacana is better than this one. The only thing I really like is the music and the place, also the staff... More

We ate lunch here on our last day in Huatulco but my son wished we would have found it earlier in the week. The restaurant is right across from the mercado, but felt private for being right of the street. The decor was nice, and the wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. Our waiter even brought out a floor... More

We went to this restaurant based on the good reviews and were not disappointed. The food was great, so was the service. I highly recommend the Sabor de Oaxaca plate

The food was good but a little on the dry/overcooked side. My husband ordered the grasshoppers and enjoyed them. They have great sangria.

The food and the service was good. We had the "Taste of Oaxaca". However, the constant flow of panhandles was very distracting. The worst was the xylophone player just outside. When he passed through the restaurant looking for money, I would have payed him not to play any more.

In our week in Huatulco, we found ourselves heading back to Sabor de Oaxaca many times. We sampled the moles--i loved the coloradito. And everyone loved the shrimp cocktail, with LOTS of delicious shrimp in a great salsa. Also an avocado salad, chilaquiles--really everything. The restaurant itself could not be a more pleasant, and the service is truly excellent.

A lot of reviewers really like this restaurant. We thought it was OK. The mole was not very inspired and piled on by the gallons. If you get a mole stick to the dark. Service is pleasant and the margarida was quite good. Better fare can be found at Onix and Terra Cotta, but this restaurant is OK.

We read about El Sabor on TripAdvisor and decided to look for it. It was well worth the trip. The food was delicious and plentiful. The restaurant was very clean and the staff were wonderful. Great value.
