Consuelo and I found the standardized menu, with very reasonable prices, a little suspicious. Perhaps the kitchen was cutting corners and the plastic menu was determined by some office in Guadalajara? The daily menu meal wasn't available: all sold out at 6:30. The soup of...More

We enjoyed this place very much. We both had the pork with mole - mine Negro and my husband´s Rojo. Came with soup and rice. Small, comfy place and the service was very good. We would eat here again.

We love this pleasant restaurant on García Vigil. Friendly, airy, decent art on the walls, excellent service, the comida costs a little more than you might spend mid-afternoon though nothing outrageous--the food is very well-prepared, well-served. Easily worth a visit.

This restaurant is ideal for a Oaxacan breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The flavors are delicious, especially the enchiladas, enfrijoladas (enchiladas with black bean sauce), and enmoladas (enchiladas with mole). It is the perfect place to relax, have very good coffee, and enjoy the excellent service!!!
