Biznaga is well-liked in Oaxaca—good food, friendly service, great decor. They have an extensive mezcal collection and do interesting cocktails. I admit, after several visits, I’m not sure why it is as popular as it is. The good is good, but I’ve never been overwhelmed....More

I usually have one meal here when I'm in Oaxaca City. It's a good stand-by. The food is consistently good and interesting. As a vegetarian sometimes it's tricky to get food in good places but Biznaga is definitely accommodating. The cocktails too are good. Waiters...More

I had the sopa Azteca which was delicious - most of the ingredients come on a side plate, so you can make it to your own taste. Everything was fresh and delicious. The setting is nice, too - covered patio so its cool and breezy...More
