Oaxaca has such a great mix of low and high cuisine—from amazing tlayudas, sopas, and tacos at the markets to haute moles and molecular gastronomical interpretations of classic regional dishes—that its very hard to pin down my favorites. Los Danzantes is among the best though. The service is a little slow, but ours wasn't nearly as bad as some other... More

This place has a lot of history, one of the most famous restaurants in the city. Try the mezcal by the same brand and some of the mole specialties.

Both the room and the food are works of art. Absolutely stunning. Well worth the price. A sludge for the same price as a pretty good meal in Los Angeles.

I only rate the restaurant average because the staff was very immature. But also the Tlayuda which I ordered for dinner was not great, the ingredients were so fused together that I could not tell them apart. The shrimp were either just cut up or just so tiny that I could not taste them. Also the large tortilla had no... More

This restaurant has a beautiful dining area with a very relaxing ambience. The menu is pricey but not terribly so, with a wide variety of selections. Our meal was very flavourful although I have had better mole in town. Our biggest irritation was the haphazard service. There was a large tour group in for dinner and they appeared to be... More
