Lovely little restaurant, excellent attentive service offering traditional Oaxacan dishes. My mole negro de pollo was sensational, can't remember what my partner had but he enjoyed & devoured it all. Don't make the mistake my partner did, thinking that the green sauce was guacamole - no no no this salsa Verde es picante (hot sauce)!

We were craving mole so we went to Sabor de Oaxaca. The mole did deliver. Really good! But the tlayuda was just ok. And the Tamal seemed to be reheated/frozen. Maybe it was the low season as were the only ones having dinner. Service was very nice.

We had the Oaxacan platter, everything was very good. The guacamole and black beans were excellent. All of the meats and cheese tasted delicious. I would definitely like to return and try some other menu items. Very easy access and no waiting to be seated for our party of 12. Excellent service and okay rates for a step up from... More

The restaurant is the best one we visited. The food is excellently prepared authentic Oxacan food. Portions are generous, but they did not sacrifice quality in this restaurant. Friendly, attentive staff. Reasonably priced. You will not be disappointed!

If you wanna a great local food experience that's THE place! Actual Oaxaca food and drinks, nice flavors e smells. We order a combo with multiple local foods including the famous Oaxaca cheese. Gorgeous! You can share this combo with 2 or 3 friends, it's huge and the price was quite honest. Amazing experience.

The rustic atmosphere of this beautiful location is amazing, only to be topped by the truly homemade oaxacan dishes! From their corn tortillas to their Amarillo de Pollo...it is fresh and so very flavorful!

Three travellers from BC Canada all in the food service industry. Eight years ago we came to Sabor to try some Oaxacan food. We all chose a dish randomly and would share around the table...we each took one bite of our respective dishes and declared touch my food and die! Eight years later we returned to the area and one...

We enjoyed dinner here one evening with friends. Great service and good local food and beverage choices! Try the Oaxacan platter so you can experience a selection of local foods including great tacos.

We went for lunch and left stuffed. This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide. We had the Oaxaca feast for two. It could have fed four! we ended up taking half of it home. The flavors were good and the meat was tender. We enjoyed the black mole which was on the sweeter side.
