Had a delicious meal here. Best guccamole in Oaxaca and that is a big call. I had the fish which was excellent. Generous portions home cooked healthy food with a smile. Staff lovely. Quirky little place with charm that has a 'local' feeling to it...More

This is an excellent family owned and run restaurant within walking distance of Oaxaca's historical district. It's small. 8 tables downstairs and 3 upstairs so you may have to wait for a table (try for downstairs since the second level gets a little stuffy). The...More

Low key atmosphere with great food at a very reasonable price. Hamburger meal with greens and home fries. Other choices presented well

our meals were superb. The owner even ran out to get us a bottle of wine since he didn't have what we ordered.

We had the Shrimp & Arracherra (skirt steak) so well seasoned, so tender! Delicious. Depending on the night, be prepared for a limited menu, i think they also had various kinds of chicken, but stuck to shrimp and beef. The aqua fresca was very good...More
