“Flawless meal with great service”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I've lived in Oaxaca for five years and tried Danzantes every now and than with lukewarm results. Last night our dinner was simply wonderful. Three of us shared the duck appetizer (huge portion for an appetizer) and the spinach salad. The we had tuna with wild mushrooms, wild mushroom pasta and coconut shrimp. All three main courses were terrific and the presentation so beautiful. Dessert was the goat cheese flan which the three of us shared. We shared a bottle of white wine. All was perfect and I haven't yet mentioned the stunning architecture of the room. It must be seen.

“Eclectic interior with a superb menu!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We had seen the unassuming entrance off an interior courtyard while out walking around but had not poked our heads in to check the interior or the menu. However, some friends (review below) also visiting Oaxaca at the same time recommended this restaurant and we decided to got there on our last night. The interior was quite interesting, especially the bar constructed of blocks of crushed cars. The service was quite attentive and far better than the norm. We ordered Arrachera and Ribs and were both extremely pleased with our choices. Their margaritas were excellent as were the wine offerings.

“Good food, service pretty good, smoky environment”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We had only a few small plates so I can't speak to the main dishes. The food was good, but it wasn't our favorite meal while in Oaxaca. Unfortunately the enclosed courtyard made for a smoky environment. The modern architecture created a fun, trendy setting.

“Impeccable experience and a great atmoshpere!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

My husband and I were not expecting such a beautiful and intimate garden setting. Our first impression was really: wow! A friend wanted to take us there and we now understand why. We were not disappointed. The decor is really stunning, the food is great and the service impeccable. It's amazing to discover what the city of Oaxaca has to offer in terms of gastronomy. Los Danzantes definitely stands out among the best addresses in town. The style is supposed to be «Oaxacan fusion cuisine» but I still have hard times to define exactly what is «fusion cuisine». I can only say that what we have eaten there was great and well presented (an amazing plate of coconut shrimps with fruit sauce and rice for me and a superb tuna dish for my husband). They also serve great cocktails (I had a margarita mezcalita and loved the smokey taste of mezcal) and delicious dessert (like a surprising goat cheese ice cream with a cake... yummy!). And don't miss the bathroom... everything at Los Danzantes is so stylish! More expansive than other places in Oaxaca, but still a very good ratio quality/price (for sure can't find anything like this for that price in Montreal).
