We were visiting Oaxaca during Guelaguetza season so tried Los Danzantes but we didn't have reservations and it was impossible to be seated. So wWe made reservations for the next night and the atmosphere was perfect for our last night in Oaxaca. We loved the high columned stone walls and eating under the open sky. A truly one of a...

We had read good reviews and went for it - Waiters took very long, food was plain average and, comparatively speaking, below par.

Excellent atmosphere and service. Diverse menu of very good food. A little pricey, but worth it. I had the rib-eye steak and it was extremely tender and perfectly cooked. The mescals from their distillery are among our favorites.

The first thing you notice entering the restaurant is the wonderful open air ceiling, with soaring textured walls. The atmosphere was the high point for us and the food good, although we ate at several similar priced restaurants in Oaxaca that far performed the cuisine here.

My two friends got violently ill after eating the seafood soup. However, I have been going for years, and always enjoyed it. So I decided to go back again and give it another try. I was 15 minutes late for my 7:30 dinner reservation, due to a long wait at the pharmacy. The hostess and waitress were very rude, and... More

Hidden in a back courtyard on The Paseo Turistico. Superb interior design that combines modern and traditional architectural elements. Top staff, perfectly bilingual. High level Mexican and World cuisine with a certain oriental twist. Balanceerde Wine list with excellent Mexican Wines by The glass.

Great authentic Mexican food. The stuffed chili with mushrooms is addictive. Good service - small venue. May need reservations. Elegant atmosphere.

Oaxaca is this gorgeous nexus of a powerful and very much alive local cooking tradition, along with world-class chef talent. Los Danzantes is a great example of this. The food here is spectacular. So much that we used two of our precious nights dining out in Oaxaca eating here. The first night we simply had two appetizers. Our friends ordered... More
