Cute,cosy and simple little restaurant not far from the main square. The waiter's English was amazing and they were so accommodating to my friend's really needy food allergies and cooked her dinner exactly how she asked. I had the beef burger and it was one of the best of my life!! Would reccomend if you need a little break from traditional Mexican food.

Quinque has been a Oaxaca favorite for years. They moved to Hidalgo 218 a year or two ago and the new location is larger and they now offer beer. What keeps me and my friends coming back though is their daily specials -- and their hamburgers. We now have a card club which meets there weekly so we can enjoy their home cooking. They have a full menu including delicious salads but we are never disappointed in their daily specials. If you haven't discovered them yet, give them a try. You'll be back.

The place was closed on Sunday afternoon, it looked out of business, a for sale sign and the zone is not good, we returned back to the zocalo for more options

gracias por tu aportacion no hay nada mejor que para un restaurante que una critica mala sin siquiera probar la comida, y no estamos fuera de circulacion, y la zona no es mala, ahora estamos muy cerca de la central de abastos donde todo es fresco como nuestros ingredientes, amigo si tuviste un mal dia, no es nesesario desquitarse en tripadvisor con restaurantes locales,
