Prices have skyrocketed in the last 12 months. On weekend is very crowded take your time or make a reservation. Consider 250 to 300 pesos per person... More

Everyone has talked about the food, which is excellent. As I am not an expert in Oaxaca, I would like to add the awesome service we received, everyone was really on their toes to have all customers happy.

I've been going to La Bella Lula on my Xmas vacations in Mexico city for the last decade and it never disappoints. As I've noted in the title of my review, this restaurant specializes in food from Oaxaca. The menu is large and you'll be sure to find something for everyone. In terms of appetizers, I would recommend the sopa... More

A colleague of mine who lives in the city recommended this place, and he was spot-on! It's located diagonal to the British Embassy, and behind the US Embassy, right off of Reforma. The decor is traditional, and the food is high-quality Oaxacana cuisine. The prices were more than reasonable for a semi-formal work lunch, the service outstanding (as I found... More

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighbourhood Profile
Coyoacan
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
