My sister and I were in Oaxaca celebrating our birthdays and decided to try Danzantes before we went for drinks and music. We arrived about 8:30 Saturday evening, and couldn't be seated because all tables were reserved. The hostess was very helpful and found seating in the bar area for us. We ordered entradas and drinks. The entradas we had... More

We visited based upon the trip advisor reviews, but were disappointed. The service and the atmosphere were pleasant, but the food was not of the quality we expected given the reviews and the prices. The fish with mole amarillo with vegetables was completely flavorless. The fish and shrimp soup was palatable, but lacking flavors besides that of fish. The pulpo... More

We had dinner there twice last week. We loved the food and vibe of the restaurant. I realized that I had booked a reservation at Los Danzantes through Open Table only to find out that I mistakenly booked a reservation in the Mexico City. They let me in anyway.

When I travel I trust two things: Trip Advisor and my Lonely Planet travel guide. I travel with my wife and a couple of friends to Oaxaca, in late march.

The place is amazing, it has it all, the setting is beautiful, the food is amazingly good, the service is also great. I see nothing wrong with it, well maybe that its hard to get a table there, you must make a reservation beforehand. 5 stars!

Tried to make a reservation for a Tuesday night in April 2015. With group of 12 friends and was told that they will require a $200 peso deposit per person and cannot attend to us at 6 PM but will be 7PM.. If we are ten minutes late we will loose our deposit.

Although the food was good enough, I wasn't as impressed with Los Danzantes as with some other Oaxacan restaurants. The room itself is like a big cavern and not all that romantic, in my opinion. I had pork with a dark mole sauce and the pork was a little dry. I guess if you mop it up with enough mole... More

We had to leave as we waited over 15 minutes without getting any service. The restaurant was full, but for the price and expectations it just was not worth it.

Very nice setting, tucked away a little off the main street.
