This restaurant is small (3 -4 tables only) but the food it serves is excellent. It seems to be catering to locals not the tourists. However, the food is very good and authentic. Price is also very reasonable.

More than a restaurant, this place is La Teca's very own house and you get to eat from the dishes she prepares in her kitchen. Seating in the outdoor patio is highly recommended, and you will be better off when getting the degustation menu. You...More

This was the best meal during our stay in Oaxaca. The Plato Ismeño is fantastic, the chile relleno, the estofado, the enmoladas, and the house mezcal, all excellent. We went back the next day. Make reservations!

We went twice for dinner during our stay in Oaxaca. After a somewhat bland meal at casa Oaxaca, we found the food at la Teca to be much more flavorful. It is a simple, not ostentatious restaurant with honest home style cooking. Great stuffed dried...More

Traditional food from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, all made when you order, all delicious. A garden area available when it's not too chilly or rainy. Wonderful art, and great service.
