“Authentic, excellent food.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

El Morocco has made every effort to provide authentic food and ambience. It is great to have this super alternative to Oaxacan fare, as much as we love that too. Our favorite dishes are the meat-cheese-vegetable pastry appetizers and the lamb couscous. Service is very good too as is the location and prices are reasonable.

“Good Moroccan Food”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Nice atmosphere, very comfy seating. The waiter was actually from Morocco and delivered some good vegetarian options. The olives took me right back to Fez.

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Try the beet and mango salad. Two for 1 happy hour is always a plus. Decent prices and generous helpings.

Thank you other TA reviewers for the recommendations.

Service was great and fast. I do not know what the other reviewers were talking about.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

El Morocco was a pleasant surprise just outside central Oaxaca in a residential area. The food was very comparable to that one would find in any city in Morocco - without having to make the trip. Very reasonable prices and wonderful service in a typical Moroccan atmosphere.

“Nice surprise ...”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

Very happy to have found this restaurant. Very comfortable low couches, nice lighting and full open front with the breezes coming in. Killer [meaty] olives in their own garlic olive oil. Ordered the orange salad and bastilla. Perfectly done, crisp, not dry and very savory with overtones of cinnamon and spice. As a chef and restaurant owner, I was very happy with dinner, presentation and service. The best part? The tiramisu, blew me away.
Treat yourself with dinner here!
