“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Try the holy leaf with goats cheese, the duck tacos and the chocolate waterfall!! To reach this restaurant you must walk into La Casa Vieja and go all the way in until you see Los Danzantes which is on a terrace. It is small but the service is great and the food is amazing.

“Last night dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We ended our vacation with a special dinner here. Service was very good for Oaxaca where it tends to be slow. I'm not crazy about mezcal, but the long list of mezcal cocktails is tempting. A wonderful dining room open to the sky.

Amazing decor and lovely surroundings, the food was great but I would advise to book as we managed to talk our way in for a lunch reservation.

“Great food, an oasis in a loud city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We went to Los Danzantes almost every night we were in Oaxaca City and it was absolutely wonderful. We especially loved the duck tacos and the spinach salad with hibiscus dressing. The mixed drinks were pretty good and they also have a house wine made by Adobe Guadalupe (a winery in Baja), which is quite good and not too expensive. And, the cascada de chocolate is a must for desert. The atmosphere is very relaxed and it is set back a little from the street, making it very quiet and a nice place to have a long meal. They take reservations - which are not required, but would be a must in the busier seasons - and it would be a very nice place to take a larger group.
