We enjoyed our meal here very much. The atmosphere was pleasant and we especially liked the starters. I wasn't that keen on the pork ribs, but the pasta and all the starters we tried were excellent. Also, the mezcal margarita with tamarind. wow. We were here last 8 years ago and thought it was still great. During Semana Santa and... More

This is probably the most stunning restaurant in Oaxaca. The adobe walls, pond, courtyard setting and long bar are magnificent. We were very impressed with the menu (there is an English explanation on the menu) and the wait staff were attentive. We had excellent margaritas and a very nice bottle of Viognier wine with our meal. Our entrees were delicious... More

You'll love the setting. It's surrounded at high adobe walls. This is outdoor dining in a beautiful courtyard. The organic chicken mole is a must!

We went to Los Danzantes for dinner and asked for an English speaking waiter. Omar, the wait staff captain explained all the food to us and clearly has a passion for Oaxacan cuisine. Based in his recommendation I tried the Mogo Mogo and it was delicious. All the food we had was great.

Great decor and exceptionally helpful staff who were happy to assist us with the menu. We shied away from the worms ants and grasshoppers, enjoying tostadas and grilled meat instead. Good atmosphere and well priced. Only complaint, the steak was ordered medium well and was rare. Sent it back and it was returned medium rare. That was the only negative

Excellent location. Service is very good. Food average. Good overall. We did not need to go more than once. We were a group of 14 and maybe that's why my tuna was cold.

We went for lunch on one of our last days in Oaxaca. I had a shrimp dish reminiscent of a ceviche, that was just lovely. My wife has had a stuffed chicken breast that was presented beautifully and had a taste to match. The restaurant itself is off the street, so it is quieter than many other Oaxaca restaurants. It...

We went to have dinner while we were on our Honey Moon. At first sight, we loved the place, but the food exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend the SALMÓN EN COSTRA DE NUEZ Y PARMESANO.
