A Must!

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

The red Mole was terrific along with the avocado salad made for a great meal. Service also was good.

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.

We ate there three times. Twice it was good, but on the last occasion, one of dishes was really poor. The margaritas are the best we had in La Crucecita, and the staff are lovely.

We ate twice at this restaurant and loved it. The food was great, service was very friendly and they really went above and beyond, rarely do you receive service like this in Canada. The restaurant itself was very warm and quaint. Highly recommend.

Pretty restaurant, strong margaritas, tasty food. As in typical mexican food, the presentation left something to be desired, but the taste was good - and free chips and salsa are always a must in my book.
