“Authentic Oaxacan foods and flavors”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Sabor de Oaxaca is a delightful, homey restaurant with delicious Oaxacan food. The restaurant offers an array of different flavored mole sauces, distinguished by their color, each one more flavorful than the last you might have tried. Their Tlayuda with cecina brings together a rich combination of tastes and is something that you should NOT miss if you are in Huatulco. We have frequented the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner and have not been disappointed!

“Best in Huatulco”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We spent a week in Hualtulco and this was the best place we ate. Very authentic for the area. My wife and I got the sample platter and it was well worth the price. There is a local dish that is kind of a dip made from grasshopper that was great. Next time I'm in town I will got here again.

“Excellent”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

El Sabor de Oaxaca is located next door to the Hotel Maria Mixteca, about half block off the zocolo. The decor and ambiance is attractive and decorative. The menu varied and appealing. Food was excellent as was the service. Prices are moderate; excellent value.

“An excellent place to eat.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We wandered here our first night, tried a variety of other spots and returned here for our final dinner, as we liked it best. The prices are about the same as elsewhere, but the food appeared to be fresher and tastier. the service was very good, though the English was limited. Being off the town square, it was a bit quieter to eat and there were fewer interruptions from wandering vendors.
