A beautiful space with amazing food and great service. We started with the wedding dish yummmm My husband had the beef oh that was tender and tasty and I had the coconut coated prawns yummm! My favourite restaurant so far in Mexico! And you must finish with the chocolate dish, oh so decadent!

Had our farewell dinner there and we weren't disappointed. The mezcal drinks are great. Ordered the mole tamales which were great. The ambience is fantastic because of the lighting and gorgeous waterfall. The service experience is wonderful.

We ate lunch here twice while in Oaxaca City and the atmosphere, the service and the food were all superb. The imaginative menu features fresh, local Oaxacan ingredients beautifully presented. It is Oaxacan fine dining. It's a great dining value too.

We have taken advantage of the Menu del Dia which is offered only on certain days of the week two times. Both meals were quite nice, with a fusion of Oaxacan and other cuisines. Everything was well-made and presented rather elegantly. It was ridiculously inexpensive, which probably explains why you must have a reservation. I believe only a set number... More

This restaurant is fantastic. Trendy open decor, excellent staff and exquisite food. Very reasonably priced. It felt like New York on a Mexican budget. We loved it. And I concur the mole was epic.

The architecture is magnificent, however the food does not quite live up to the visual excellence. We couldn't even chew our ribs! Uneven quality all around.Great service, however. Going to give it another try at lunch.

Los Danzantes has a good ambiance but I was disappointed with the food quality. A beet and greens salad was rather flat. I had a rib-eye steak that I requested cooked medium. It took forever to prepare and when it came it was very rare and a bit too chewy. I ate it because I was very hungary and my... More

We had the special Menu of the day twice this year and both times the food w as merely just decent. This is a big change from previous years. Note: I highly recommend that Americans and Canadians change to eating the main meal in the middle of the day. You will have a very large number of good choices and... More
