Excellent Dining in an Elegant Ambiance

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... read more

This restaurant has impeccable service, beautiful ambience, the best Azteca soup in the city and very good salads.. The atmosphere is elegant and the service is personal.

I have enjoyed this restaurant each time that I have visited Oaxaca. All of the moles have been excellent but today I had the tamal de mariscos (steamed seafood). The waiter was very attentive and spoke excellent English. The setting in a plaza with a fountain unlovely.

I enjoyed delicious Sopa Azteca for lunch and would have stopped another day if I'd had more time. Excellent service and comfortable experince. A little pricey for lunch.

Incredible service! The waiters go the extra mile to please you. We never had tlayudas before and he mentioned they were a must, so we ordered as appetizer. Tlayudas are huge tortillas filled with beans, meat, salad, avocado and cheese, almost the size of a pizza. Soooo good. This was our first visit to Oaxaca and he insisted we tried... More

My wife and I were drawn to this restaurant, located inside an old building, hacienda style. We were seated immediately and the server and the captain were great in suggesting the specialties. We were not dissappointed. The food is excellent if gourmet mexican is what you are looking for, although a little on the expensive side. The staff is friendly... More

This was our first meal in Oaxaca. We were anxious to try Oaxacan cuisine and this restaurant did not disappoint. We were served chapulines, chile relleno, and chicken almondrendo (?) among others. The servers were kind and attentive. This became the restaurant by which others were judged for the rest of our trip.

There is something slightly off putting about the entrance to this restaurant which is probably why it has few tourists. Walk into this covered courtyard however and there is a feeling of space and tranquillity. There are menus in English but there was some confusion when after being given a breakfast menu at lunchtime we asked for the lunch menu... More

I was the only non-Mexican customer in this restaurant, and that's always a good sign. The food was simply superb, not a huge choice, but all the classic Mexican dishes beautifully prepared with fresh and delicious ingredients. The setting is pleasant, an interior courtyard, but then that's true of most of Oaxaca's restaurants. Service friendly and polite too. The wait... More

Our waiter was very sweet and accommodating. He made excellent suggestions and was more than willing to change menu items to accommodate vegetarians. The atmosphere is beautiful, and the food tasted great.
