We were staying at The Parador on Calle Macedonia Alaca so we were pleased to find this place on the end of our block. The shrimp I had were huge and had been purchased fresh that morning. My friend had a fillet of fish that was enormous; twice what they would give you as a portion in the states. My... More

Went there for fresh guacamole, and it did not disappoint :) Also great salad, and everybody I was with enjoyed the burgers and other things as well. Friendly service and nice atmosphere as well!

I visited this place with a friend that raved about the burgers and it did not disappoint. After living in Oaxaca for 2 years, you can really miss luxuries like a hamburger that is thicker than a piece of paper and not just on Bimbo bread. This burger was thick and juicy with cheese and bacon on a nice roll.... More

Our first dining experience in Oaxaca didn't disappoint. Carlos the owner's son does a great job of running the place and was a pleasure to talk to. Late Sunday afternoon meal with just a couple of tables filled with local families. The ribs special with potates, corn, veggies was fabulous. Homemade potato roll perfect for sopping up the delicious Kansas... More

We are finishing up our Mexican winter and after eating out in different locales for six months, we keep returning in our minds, and stomachs, to Oaxaca and El Quinque. In our travels to a number of other spots we have yet to find a restaurant that offers delicious, fresh food of good quality, on a consistent basis. The fish... More

I had lunch there last week with four people in total. I thought the food was ok and the waiter was unfriendly and elusive.

We chose this restaurant because of the closeness to our place and the price range along with the reviews. We were not disappointed. We had the shrimp al ajillo which was excellent and since we are small eaters we shared it along with the green salad that was huge. We were quite happy that we shared. To end our delightful...
