Restaurants

In recent years the Oaxaca restaurant scene has considerably and continues to become more sophisticated. The big meal is ‘comida,’ usually eaten between 1 and 3 pm. Dinner is usually lighter, consisting of snacks in the zocalo. Restaurants in Oaxaca do, however, cater to American sensibilities, serving dinner. This is particularly true of restaurants in hotels. Keep in mind that a number of restaurants are still ‘cash only’.

Los Danzantes
(Macedonio Alcalá 403-4)

A pretty indoor/outdoor setting with unique Oaxacan fusion food, and we like it for its total gestalt. Try the roast vegetable salad and duck enchiladas in pipian sauce as well as their own excellent mescal, Los Danzantes. In the alley you must enter to go to Los Danzantes, you pass a fabulous textile store (Los Baules).

We recommend that you pour over the many regional huipiles and rebozos that are among the treasures here.
