Good food, service and location. Try Beluga (fresh sea bass Spanish style) and Oaxaca food (tasajo is good). Good service. In the very downtown of Oaxaca city! Seat upstairs, terrace view to central park and government palace. Walk through andador turistico to Santo Domingo church,...More

We arrived quite late in the city and were looking for a place to eat. We arrived at the Zocolo and saw the great terrace with an overview over the place. There were several bands playing below and we had a great view. The service...More
