Our evening started out with the best Margaritas we had during a two week trip to Mexico! The rest of the meal was very good. While in Oaxaca, we had Mole Negro and wanted to try another kind of mole. The amarillo or yellow mole...More

This restaurant was recommended from a local friend. Suggested this one so we experience the Oaxaca style and flavors of their food. Glad we went!

We have dinner here at least once every trip. Great for authentic Oaxacan cuisine. I love their sangria, and my favorite dish is the Pollo Estofado. Their moles are all excellent as well.
