Our third restaurant on our Mexico trip and what an eye opener! Fantastic fusion food and at reasonable prices. Our view of Mexican food changed by the wonderful tastes this restaurant afforded us. However, being spoilt by the high standard proffered here only brought bitter disappointment to all further gastronomic adventures that followed. Highly recommended!

Coming from Boston and NY we were ready for the foodie experiences of Oaxaca. Los Danzantes was high on the list based on reviews and articles. The presentation was great but the taste was mediocre. With the prices near US prices the value for the money was not there. Other places in Oaxaca in far out class this place. The room is very cool and worth a trip or a mexcal to enjoy. Try other spots if you are exploring the food scene in Oaxcaca

We found the meals here were overpowered by the sauces, the ribs were too charred and the vegetables were in short supply. The setting is stunning but it's just not matched by the food. The main meal left us hungry. Dessert was no different. The flavours didn't work.

We stop by Los Danzantes based on these reviews. And it deserves the highest rating. We rated food 5 because 6+ is not available. Don't hesitate and give it a chance! You won't regret it!

The food was incredible, but the vastness of the place, the very odd and chilly decor of the restroom area (mirrors everywhere?? Blue light?? it was like a bad acid trip...) the open air setting with a large wall (reminiscent of the Berlin Wall) was a bit of a turn-off. Still, service was excellent and the wine list good. The seared tuna appetizer was outstanding and the dessert was worth the price of admission!
