The Zapotec weaver we had gone to Oaxaca to meet up with suggested we go to this restaurant. We were so pleased with the food, service and setting that we returned a second night and were not disappointed. The clientele were mixed with tourists and...More

I’m not sure if the meal we ate here was representative of a typical experience or not. We really really enjoyed the excellent service and felt all of the Staff went out of their way keeping us happy. The open roof dining area of the...More

Light, colorful, delicious food and drink. A quiet, cozy courtyard just perfect for getting your day off to a great start.

Our first lunch served in the patio was so extraordinary we visited for lunch again and had an identical extraordinary experience. It had it all including a delicious Mexican (Baja) tinto/wine, and on the second visit the pleasure of watching the owner/head chef being filmed/photographed...More

We really enjoyed the food and the service here. The chicken from the parilla was good as was the cornmeal crusted chicken. As it seems is usual in Oaxaca, the portions are relatively small so I would suggest ordering sides and salads.

If I were grading this place on the mole, it would have 5 stars. Best ever. But not much chicken included-one lower drumstick. Guacamole was really unimpressive but they were very pleasant and gave us little extras. My wife had fish that was perfectly fresh...More

My first meal in Oaxaca was at Las Quince Letras. I based my choice on the restaurant's TripAdvisor reviews, but unfortunately my experience was disappointing. The salsa was good, but the chips served with it were stale. When I pointed this out, I was told...More

Despite the mixed reviews I decided to have lunch here. I sat in the sunny patio where after a while other guests ( mostly gringos) began to arrive. I had agua de papaya, tetelas and guacamole. The service was fabulous and the food delicious. Maybe...More
