La Biznaga had a amazing food, not known for being fast. But, my oh my, such an incredible food experience. There was no “ traditional” Oaxacan food, but several entrees started with a Mexican flavor and took off from there! I had 1/2 of a...More

I had lunch here several times on my last visit. (Lunch because I had rented an apartment in streetlight-challenged La Nória, and didn't like venturing out. The food and service were very good. I had read, however, that this was an Isthmeño restaurant, but the...More

This restaurant is truly great and affordable. We were in Oaxaca 7 nights and spent 3 of them eating here. Try the el cerro viejo and chicken de guayaba. The prices are extremely reasonable also.

I go here every time I visit Oaxaca. It has very good Tortilla soup, and I love the fresh Jicama with lime and chile spices. It is very comfortable and is a good place for people traveling solo.
