Great

Great view (terrace). Great service. Delicious food. Try the gusanos with guacamole, the mole combinado. For Drinks, michelada is a must.

My husband, two daughters, and I ate at Los Pacos in the Oaxaca City center in July 2015. The food was very good and the service, too. Try the black bean soup and the tacos de chapulines! Both were great! Our kids especially liked the paintings on the walls; they sat for at least 30 minutes drawing them. A very... More

Not bad, but nothing to write home about. I tried the mole sampler. 2 were very good. The others...meh. can't really say much bad about the food, but the price made it really not worth it.

We always have the same meal at Los Pacos when we visit Oaxaca, the sampler of 7 moles. It's a great way to become reacquainted with Oaxacan moles.

Los Pacos was recommended by our hotel so we went for a big family dinner. At first I was pleased with the free table snacks which were good. The service was good too. They also had 7 artisanal oaxacan beers which were good, but our entrees were not very tasty, we got the flor de calabaza soup, the chiles relleno,... More

Not that I am an expert on moles, but having tried a number in Mexico City and Oaxaca, these were not as complex and interesting as other I had on this trip. Just average.

Not a good experience. I think we were the only diners there the evening we visited which shuld have given us a warning.We asked to sample the different moles which was good and then we chose 3 differnet ones so that we could really sample a range. But the result was a large soup bowl of soupy brown mole with... More

Right were the Guelaguetza passes by this restaurant offers you a dish so you can try the 7 moles of Oaxaca. Be prepared for some intense flavours that you've never tried and I assure you that at leas one of them you are going to love!

Our trip to Los Pacos will go down in family lore for our bizarre experience there. We arrived hungry and with a baby nearing the end of her rope. Our mistake was ordering salads instead of just entrees. The waitstaff, although friendly, did not read the cues of our group and proceeded to prepare a Cesar salad tableside. Hungry onlookers...

We had a reservation for over a week for 12 friends, Friday, April 17, 2015. We asked our hotel to confirm the reservation which they did. When we arrived they acted like we did not have a reservation and said they would try to set a table for us in the "back" in a stuffy room next to the bathrooms... More
