Dined at Restaurante Las Quince Letras with a friend after a satisfying experience at a Sunday market. We arrived after 3pm to enjoy a quiet late lunch in their small, but nice patio. Later on, a guitarist played music for diners. We enjoyed traditional Oaxacan food in an nice environment and lingers for a while in the shade of the... More

We heard about this place from some fellow travelers who know the chef from a previous cooking class. We ate in the charming courtyard for a late lunch and the food was excellent. Very attentive unpretentious service. Well priced.

Only three blocks from the current foodie favorite ( Casa Oaxaca), is a calm little restaurant that sees 40-50 regulars come in for a long lunch every day (not open for dinner). They've been doing this for over twenty years. The ingredients are fresh from the morning market, and the menu changes accordingly. But the best black mole in town... More

This was my favorite restaurant in Oaxaca. The menu is traditional Oaxacan dishes (moles, tlayudas, etc), and they're prepared with great attention and obvious pride. The outdoor dining area is beautiful, and is shaded by trees and vines of various sorts. It's very relaxing and unpretentious. The owners, chefs, and wait staff are all incredibly friendly and patient. It's just... More

We were in Oaxaca for a month and went to this restaurant 3 times. I am addicted to their sopa Azteca. The food is wonderful and the staff charming. We went to many restaurants, tiendas and mercados, and bought our own food to cook but this was our favorite for the cuisine and ambiance.

This was the best restaurant we visited in our month in Oaxaca. We returned many times. The food is robust but delicate and authentically Mexican. The service was superb and the ambiance lovely. The interior patio is charming. The chiles de agua with pork was exquisite, the mole almendrado excellent, and the arroz with chepil delicious. The comida corrido (4... More

Upon the recommendation of a friend in Mexico City, we had a family dinner at Las Quince Letras, two blocks away from the Convento Sto Domingo. The chef and staff were super friendly and accomodating, the food truly delicious and overall one of the best culinary experiences we had in Oaxaca. Don't be fool by the modest sight from the...

This was one of my top restaurants choices to visit here in Oaxaca from the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were very disappointed with the quality of the food and the margaritas. I had the Azteca soup which tasted like a Campbell tomato soup base with tortillas too large to fit in my mouth and the pesto salad which was just... More

This is a home-style Mexican restaurant and we enjoyed lunch here. Service was very attentive, the place was quite homely and the food was very good. With the help of our guide we were able to select food that worked for us and which was served at a reasonable pace. The waiter insisted we try one of the local soups,... More

My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant evening here on out recent visit to Oaxaca. We sat in the inner courtyard under a tree and the night sky. Our server, a very pleasant woman, was also the owner. Later, her daughter appeared to help translate a conversation, and we appreciated the at-home feel to the place. Food was excellent.
