We visited on a very rainy night and the staff promptly made a table for us in the corner. The place had a great vibe and nice music. Staff were very friendly, the food (especially the empanadas) and house white wine were delicious and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Perfect!! We were tired and wanted takeout, and it was no problem whatsoever, pizza and filet mignon, and a glass of wine.. great authentic pizza, tender beef in creamy mushroom sauce, great scalloped potatoes and salad. And great courteous, relaxed service, to the point of the server, upon me putting 600 MX on the counter for a pizza, a steak plate and three glasses of wine, protestingly pointing to the bill, and saying: "no, it's only 451MX" , politely taking the 15 % only once I insisted, and giving me the change to the peso. Leaving Oaxaca tomorrow, but will return each time I come to this charming smoggy town!!

Everything was cool. Why not 5 stars?
I asked for a formal fiscal invoice for tax expenses purposes. By Mexican law this has to be given immediately. It took them over two weeks to send it. Besides this issue I do recommend the food and ambiance getting away from noisy crowds in main downtown

I've been to The Sun and The Moon many times and they make best pasta dishes I've had in Oaxaca.

This intimate restaurant also serves pizza and salads but my favourite is the pesto pasta and the anchovy and caper pasta, all responsibly priced. The pasta is fresh and sauce is delicious. I have a vegan partner who loves the tomato and chilli pasta.

The service is lovely and I would recommend checking this one out while in Oaxaca.

My friends would have given this place 4 stars because of the music and the reasonable prices. I agree with that. I gave it a 3 because, according to one of my friends, the hamburger used to be better and my empanadas had the flavor described in the menu, but I think they used a paste. The inside of the shell was nearly hollow. The pizza on the table next to us looked good. Perhaps I should have ordered that.
