“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

My wife and I had dinner at El Escapulario and found it to be a very enjoyable experience and very good food. This is is not a fancy restaurant but very reasonably priced and the owner is very personable and aims to please, Definitely worth going and having lunch or dinner.

“Fabulous, friendly local restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled upon this restaurant for dinner. A lovely woman served and cooked a delicious meal. Authentic home cooked Mexican fare in a casual, local setting. Highly recommend stopping by.

“El Escapulario, the Gem of Oaxaca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We found El Escapulario on Trip Advisor, and was it ever worth it. During our month-long stay in Oaxaca, we ate there many times as well as taking several friends to join us there. The food is delicious, plentiful and the location, a few blocks northwest of the Santo Domingo Cathedral, is most convenient. The dining experience is wonderful in every respect especially if you can get the corner window table. In short, El Escapulario is a dining treasure in Oaxaca and very easy on the wallet.

“Must order chile rellenos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Ate lunch here yesterday. The quality of the food is very good so this restaurant is a great value. Highly recommend the chile rellenos, special soup with spinach and huitlacoche, and thayuda, salad on a very large taco. Service can be slow as one person is doing everything.
