Awesome Moroccan restaurant, good prices and great selection of different dishes. Very impressed with the food! Good veggie and vegan options. I love Mexican food, but this was a much appreciated (and very tasty) break from the local cuisine. Clutching at straws for a bad...More

El Morocco is great for a night out with friends. Not too far out from the center of town in Oaxaca City. Particularly good for vegan diners. Great Mexican staff and aa little bit of the North Africa in Mexico

We have shared the pastilla, moussaka, couscous with lamb and couscous with chcken and enjoyed them all. The couscous with lamb had less meat than the one with chicken but was still o.k.

This was a pleasant reminder of our two Morocco trips. Food was well prepared with a nice presentation. It was very flavorful. The dinner was delicious but I would skip dessert there. The pastry I had was fresh and tasty but tiny.

If you feel like something other than Mexican food, this is the place. El Moroccan offers a charming atmosphere: mood lighting, some low tables and lounge-like seating but most importantly, excellent food. Try the moussaka or the cous cous; both delicious. Good service too.
