Our host recommended this restaurant to us and we thought that coming from a local man this had to be a good sign. He was right; it's an excellent place to try typical Oaxacan dises at reasonable prices.

We found the food to be good, and the location was 2 blocks from where we stayed. The margaritas were excellent. Prices were moderate.

Good local Oaxacan cusine - We went here virtually everyday of our 5-day trip for lunch. The soups are especially delicious. Try the sopa azteca (tortilla soup) or one of the ones made with squash blossoms.

Okay, not everything was wonderful, but I would still reccomend Maria Bonita. Excellent moles, pollo en pipian, rellenos, etc. Salads not great (go to La Biznaga), and beware of overly fried foods, but traditional dishes and sauces were excellent. Very friendly service too.

It took three visits over two trips to Oaxaca to get into this place, but when we finally did we really liked the food. The owner greeted us and told us that he was closed most of the previous year for a variety of reasons...More
