We visited El Sabor in January during our stay at Las Brisas resort. Part of our daily excursion into the town of La Crucecita, I decided that our lunch destination would be El Sabor. I had done my research prior to our trip and had liked the reviews for this place. We approached the restaurant... read more

Wife and I ate at El Sabor with three other couples. El Sabor has four types of mole. I chose the traditional dark mole on chicken breast which was very good. My wife had tamales that were wrapped in banana leaves instead of the corn husks we are used to in Texas. She was very pleased with her choice. Their... More

Everyone we talked to recommended this place. We had our very first meal in the area at this restaurant. I had the red mole with chicken. They also give you the choice of black or yellow mole. The meal was excellent. They also had a good selection of beer and wine. Great people watching as well. Highly recommend this spot... More

We arrived to an almost empty restaurant with a local family. The service was correct but very unenthusiastic. The food was bland or too hot... Not truly flavorful / seasoned. The sangria was refreshing and the Mezcal good quality. However, don't ask any song from the guitarist playing around the tables; this person aggressively asks for his price after he... More

We had a great meal here last night. The kid's had a pitcher of watermelon water that they really liked we had a few beers for starters. My wife and I enjoyed the combination plater for two which would have feed 3 of us. Boys had the octopus in garlic and soft tacos. Everything was delicious and at a reasonable... More

The reataurant is under the Maria Mixteca Hotel and stays fairly busy during the morning and evenings. The food is good and clean and fair priced..not cheap, not expensive. The service was ok and the staff is friendly. For breakfast, the cooked to order omelets and quesadilla's are good and fresh as we're the fruit and other buffet items.

For the price, I would say this was below par given the portion, the taste as well as the experience. Small portions for the price, it tasted more like regular Mexican food that I can get in Canada and the service was slow with not a lot English speaking staff. I would suggest to try some of the smaller restaurants... More
