Recommended by our driver, this place was great and offered terrific authentic Oaxacan dishes - all beautifully presented. While there was no English menu, with the help of our waiter, we ordered red mole and other mouth watering dishes in this attractive space. More like an art gallery than a restaurant setting, we relaxed using their wifi and enjoyed a... More

If you come to Oaxaca, you just CAN'T miss this place. Delicious oaxacan and Mexican food, with variety, lots of flavor, the best ambiance, and in my opinion... The BEST RESTAURANT IN MEXICO!!!!

We went to Los Pacos so we could see what different moles tasted like before we ordered and the reviews mentioned a free mole sampler. There is no free mole sampler any more - at least we didn't get one and when we asked about it, the response didn't make sense. We ordered the mole combination for dinner instead. We... More

The Colonia Reforma restaurant is terrific, and we go there about twice a month. The moles are consistently great. However for just the second time we took house guests to the Centro location because of a late dinner when the other was closed. It had been years since we had been (even though we can walk to the one in... More

This is a favorite stop with visitors who would like to sample the seven moles of Oaxaca. A sampler is provided from which you can choose one or more moles for your comida. Hard tacos are also good, as well as the filet. We strongly prefer the suburban location to the one in the centro.

I do not normally write reviews, but the food at Los Pacos was so disappointing that I felt I had to comment on it. My wife has never been to Oaxaca so I thought the mole sampler could give her a taste of what various moles of Oaxaca were like. Los Pacos is more expensive than where we normally eat... More

My boyfriend and I went here on the Sunday after the Santa Semana and a rain storm (closing down their terrace), so the restaurant was, I assume, emptier than usual. The service was prompt and polite, a wonderful compliment to the meal we received. Clean bathrooms and the local artworks added to the atmoshpere. We chose to eat at Los... More

My husband and I loved this restaurant... the food was incredible and we really appreciated the free mole sampler that was brought out to us and the waiter who explained each one. A lot of love goes into this food, and the quality is apparent! I'd recommend getting the appetizer sampler because you can try a lot of the options... More

Funny how memories of restaurant meals ultimately become a price/value equation. We had been trying the "top" restos in Oaxaca for 3 nights - felt a little like Goldilocks: one had terrible (almost "mean") service, one was trying too hard to be upscale and 'continental', another was just not that good, then FINALLY we drifed into Los Pacos for lunch...

When we arrived, it took a few minutes for the busy waiter to notice our presence and give us the menu. He could, however, explain to us very well the dishes. The food took some time to prepare, but the result was just excelent. The environment is simple, not very invitive. Prices are OK, not expensive but not cheap. We... More
