Fine dining in a traditional setting

Very tastfull traditional Mexican food. Impeccable service with a certain sense of grandeur/show. The interior is classic but inviting to stay. Good Wine list and Wine suggestions. The coconut crusted shrimps are The best in town.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide who said he liked to take his wife here for a special meal. The setting is beautiful - little candles hang from the ceiling, flowers are scattered through the restaurant, and a small water feature make it a lovely place for a quiet, romantic meal or a fun night with...

We ate at this restaurant despite its price on the recommendation of our hotel. The atmosphere was very nice, located in a courtyard. The service was great and we were suprised to see that our meal started with hand sanitizer applied by the staff. We couldn't decide which mole to choose and the waiter brought out samples so we could... More

I ate the best salsa of my life here! (It came with the bread) Plus a very good salad, which was a nice light meal while still getting over jet lag. Also it's set in a very pretty courtyard that feels very Mexican.

This was a real dining experience. Beautiful courtyard setting with hanging lit candles. The menu was good, the food excellent and the staff very helpful and attentive. Couldn't fault this place in any way.

A beautiful courtyard setting, white linen tablecloths, welcoming staff. Elegant without being overbearing. (We were comfortable in jeans, but might dress a bit nicer next time.) Live music (two guitarists), too. The food is excellent. A seasonal special, chiles rellenos de pescado (fish), was a clear winner, with chiles so fresh they snapped even after cooking. "Tortilla soup" was tasty... More

I had hot chocolate (a must in Oaxaca) great pastries and huevos rancheros, all under $12 dlls. The place is very nice, close to Plaza Santo Domingo in the Corridor.

The restaurant is located in a beautifully appointed elegant courtyard. White linen service, unobtrusive service, good food and reasonably priced. The restaurant was very quiet during the breakfast hour and seems to be mostly patronized at this time by locals. A very relaxing venue for enjoying a Oaxacan chocolate caliente con leche. I will look forward to lunch or dinner... More

We were introduced to Hosteria de Alcala by friends who are regular visitors to Oaxaca. The courtyard dining tables elegantly set with white tableclothes, napkins, and flowers were an indication that this was definitely special. Pepe our waiter was warm, courteous, and extremely helpful. My wife and I each had a bowl of Azteca soup, thick and delicious, garnished with... More
