Delicious Local Food

Away from the cruise terminal, off the beaten path, deep in town. Amazing local food, great prices, slightly hidden, great service. Highly recommend if your looking to get away from the tourism at the port and have a fantastic local lunch.

Great atmosphere, delicious food, ample selection, plenty of choices for vegetarians. My only complaint is that the gentleman who was playing music demanded we pay him 50 pesos per song he sang to our table after he finished. He was rude and wouldn't leave, until it appeared that he was spooked off by an employee of the restaurant (he was... More

Loved their mole sauces. The platter for 2 was overkill but allowed us to sample so many items. All delicious. The margaritas were sublime. Service was professional and relaxed. If you find that mole sauce is heavy for you, you can't always get it on the side.

Authentic Oaxaca Food and great prices! We were a party of 4 and no one was disappointed. Service was great, very pretty, quaint and super clean restaurant with the best washrooms in town! Enchiladas in the green sauce is the way to go! Will be back!

My husband and I wanted great authentic Mexican food during our visit to Hualtulco so we asked around once we arrived. We took the recommendation and are glad we did. The food was wonderful and very tasty.

After a morning of shopping and walking around town this restaurant was a great place to recharge and "refuel"! MENU: Oaxcan specialties including multiple moles and a wide assortment of fish, chicken and other good tasting Mexican dishes.The food was fresh and the portions were generous. Of course, for the less adventuresome they did have a hamburger on the menu.... More

Just off the Zocola/square this place delights with calm, clean interior, beautiful art, furnishings, and music. So far, so good. Now for the service and food. Best mole to be found, 4 kinds. Good service, open air and relaxing. Not inexpensive, but not overpriced for the quality of ingredients and from scratch food made in house including the the tortillas.... More

Great mole. Wonderful service. Quiet and peaceful restaurant. I loved the food and the waiters were so kind and so helpful. It was a wonderful evening, and as a solo diner, I was treated like gold.
