Four of us went here on Christmas day for dinner. The restaurant is in a pretty covered courtyard, and had a huge decorated christmas tree, and looked very pretty.The food was good, though overpriced, compared to other nearby restaurants. But our servers were unwelcoming and never cracked a smile the whole night. The overall experience felt hostile, and we would... More

The title says it all, better service. Much better food try the Enchiladas autóctonas, or the huevos con salsa de molcajetero.

Our guide recommended Hosteria de alcala and suggested we try the traditional Oaxacan dish tclayuda. The service was very good and the restaurant itself quite lovely. Unfortunately we found the tclayude inedible. I don't know if it was poorly prepared or what. We could not chew it.

We had breakfast here one morning, it was pretty good, and a great price. We ordered the large orange juice, not realizing it came in glasses similar to large margaritas at home - they definitely mean large! lol. I got the quesadillas, my husband got the cheese in milk, both were absolutely delicious and a great price.

This restaurant was highly recommended in the Moon Guidebook we had for Oaxaca. We stopped in for lunch one day and ended up having dinner there on our final evening in the city. The restaurant is in a covered courtyard off of Alcala, next to the Amate Bookstore. The courtyard is surrounded by art galleries on the 2nd floor. all... More

We loved this place, its food and friendly staff. Breakfast is reasonable but be prepared to pay US prices for their fabulous table side performance of shrimp flambé in tequila and bananas in Kahlua and rum.

This restaurant is set in a large sunlight lit patio of an old Spanish Colonial Mansion. There are plants in the center, and generally very pleasant. The food was well presented, and we had Oaxaca dishes such as Mole, and Arachero. It was considered expensive for Oaxacans, but with the US$ exchange, it was very reasonable. *It is off the... More

This courtyard restaurant is very pretty and relaxing. The lunch service was very attentive, just a pleasure. The food is above average and so are the prices. We will definitely return as there were many delicious items on the menu, and we were treated well.

Visited with a large group. Wait staff wew very efficient and personable. The Caesar salad for two was ine of the best ever and prepared tableside. Chicken curry had a wonderul sauce, but a small amount of rice. The desserts were all disappointing.
