Interesting selection of food at reasonable prices. We went two nights in a row and enjoyed four excellent chicken dishes. The apple tart and the chocolate and guava mousse desserts were delicious. Red Mexican wine was good. Service efficient, though a smile or two would have made this a 5 rating!

I ate here more often than any other restaurant in Oaxaca. Food is very good, the place is abit funky but real nice, and the small crafts store on the left after you enter the restaurant has much better prices than almost all other stores I saw in the center of town (the exception being the much bigger Maro store,...

I recently had one of the most memorable meals of my life at La Biznaga, the Pollo Zanduga. The presentation is gorgeous. First bite was heavenly - mole negro with guava was rich, smooth, complex. Plaintains wrapped with chicken breast - tender, and satisfying - swirled in the mole. The rice had something crunchy on top (not crickets - maybe... More

This restaurant has the best margaritas in Oaxaca! It's a beautiful spot and the food was good but not great unfortunately. The service was mediocre but it is always busy.

Good service by friendly staff .a good selection of traditional dishes with a modern twist. Delicious food if you choose well and, unlike me , avoid the local delicacy,chiparones (grasshoppers)!

Restaurant was packed, lovely atmosphere with charming girl singing gypsy music followed by accordion. We had aztec tomato soup for a startet that you can garnish yourself with coriander, avocado and crispy tortilla, delicious! After we tried great turkey filet filled with cheese and mushrooms in a black mole with raspberries. That was delicious as well as the dessert-chocolate mousse... More

We ate here a couple of times and both times were treated to very good food. The service was friendly. The setting is a real highlight, in an enclosed courtyard that is open to the sky but with a retractable roof that can close if rain threatens. The restaurant advertises itself as "slow food" but we found that we did... More

Overall I think the food is good and the place OK. We had this place really recommended by a friend so we had high expectations. It seemed to be just fine.

My husband and I were meeting 3 other people for dinner. We found the restaurant to be loud. The food was okay and the service was slow.
