Ate there several times with husband (and sometimes sister). Great fresh fish cooked in a clay oven (horno) served with a wonderful creamy shrimp sauce. Had some very fresh shrimp/pico de gallo tostada appetizers as well. And for desert, try their apparently homemade fruit ice...More

We only went to this hotel for breakfast. It is located next to Juarez Park and about a 20 minute walk from the Zocalo. The restaurant is quite large and the open areas well shaded by plants. The breakfast menu was varied and we enjoyed...More

A peaceful respite in the afternoon, we enjoyed several delicious meals here. The best tables are further back in the covered patio area - usually the second or third they will show you.

We planned a trip to Marco Polo after reading the positive reviews. Unfortunately, my meal was very disappointing. Calamares Rellenos Marco Polo (stuffed squid with cream cheese) sounded good as described by the waiter. I love clamares in all methods of preparation. But this turned...More

I think this is my favorite restaurant in Oaxaca - and there are lots to choose from! When it's time for a break from mole, tlayudas, chiles, tortillas, etc. this is the place to go. Fresh fish or seafood served any way you want it,...More
