Good food at reasonable prices with outdoor seating. It could get very festive with Zocalo entertainers coming in to serenade the guests.

Oaxacan tamales for breakfast were really good, and really filling. Service was a little slow, but not overly slow.

Its not close to the best restaurant in Oaxaca but we find ourselves going at least once every trip. They are consistent, its a nice place to sit and watch the people on the Zocalo and, they have the best Micheladas on the Zocalo.
