We went to Los Danzantes almost every night we were in Oaxaca City and it was absolutely wonderful. We especially loved the duck tacos and the spinach salad with hibiscus dressing. The mixed drinks were pretty good and they also have a house wine made by Adobe Guadalupe (a winery in Baja), which is quite good and not too expensive. And, the cascada de chocolate is a must for desert. The atmosphere is very relaxed and it is set back a little from the street, making it very quiet and a nice place to have a long meal. They take reservations - which are not required, but would be a must in the busier seasons - and it would be a very nice place to take a larger group.

When we went, Los Danzantes was ranked no. 1 in Oaxaca. Usually I question these rankings - in Santa Fe NM they make very little sense. But this place is really terrific. It has an open roof in good weather. They say they try to use local foods, and are creatively Mexican. it's more like the new, creative restaurants in Mexico city than traditional Oaxacan food, which makes it really wonderful. I had the tuna appetizer and the vermicelli main course, both of them delicious, and the right size. There were 10 of us at 3 tables and everyone loved their meal. And the service was delightful.
We had tried to go the night before and couldn't get a table. That evening it was very noisy. But the night we went, all the tables were full and it was pleasantly peaceful.

Beautiful decoration, with a chill-out environment. Soft music, amazing food... I really recommend the tuna entrée. With a nice space in the corner to sit down, have drinks and talk. Very recommended restaurant.

The setting is amazing, the food always excellent and very creative, the service as well. You are treated as well when you order the "Menu del Dia" a bargain at 115 pesos including a glass of Mezcal as you are when ordering from La Carte.

From the beautiful atmosphere to the creative cooking Oaxacan style, I guess I loved it...I ate there 4 times during my 10 day visit.
