My wife and I have been to the Santa Clara Restaurant many times and they never fail to provide an excellent meal with great service at reasonable prices. The authentic Oaxacan dishes are to die for especially the Chile en Nogado. Their very own house...More

Why are you travelling anyway? Sure, the warm weather and the absence of work is nice but, really, you could turn up the thermostat and stay at home couldn't you? For most of us - we're travelling to see something different. This restaurant is different....More

We have heard and read so many good things about Santa Clara and decided to go a couple weeks ago. Mediocre food and charged more than on the menu. Service was very good. Would we go back? Not likely.

We ordered their "chicken baked in clay" special for 4 people and were not disappointed. The service was great as well. This is a family run restaurant and the pride in preparing the dishes is evident in the quality and taste of the food.

This restaurant is not far from the Super Che. It's a little place that is very clean. The employees were very kind, but knew just a little English. We were there early- around 5:30 p.m. The menu had an English translation, but we still found...More

The restaurant is not in the main part of La Crucecita, nor is it on the Santa Cruz stretch so I don't think it gets a lot of foot traffic. Thanks to the TA reviews, we had very tasty Oaxacan food - chicken mole (spicy,...More

Very simple open-air restaurant near la crucecita. Menu creative and food is very good. Service friendly. Very casual and local. The La Bocana location may be closed.
