I was a college student in 1978, and somehow found La Flor de Oaxaca. Delicious! The restaurant is a simple, local eatery. Nothing fancy or pretentious, with a television in the main dining room. We had LOCAL food that you could not find anywhere else at a reasonable price: guajolote in mole colorado (turkey in red mole sauce.) I had... More

We read reviews and decided to go here for Christmas dinner. We were the only people there, which should have warned us to move on. The dishes my husband and I had were just not cooked well. The pasta was cooked to mush and broken into tiny pieces and seemed like nursing home food. The poblano Rajas were not peeled... More

We had seen Flor de Oaxaca when we had stopped for coffee at El Lobo Azul opposite, asked to see the carta and found that there were dishes on the menu that we did not see in any of the restaurants in Oaxaca aimed more directly at tourists. Unfortunately, we were the only customers there all evening, but the food... More

We recently had breakfast one day, and lunch the next day, at this pleasant, professionally operated Oaxaca centro restaurant. Although it has nice touches, such as comfortable seating, tablecloths and uniformed servers, it's basically an inexpensive place catering to a middle class clientele. A set lunch menu is offered daily for $45 pesos, including a light soup, a plate of... More

The food was good enough, though far from the best Oaxacan food we have had during a 10 day stay. BUT THEY DO NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS AND VERY RELUCTANTLY TOOK DOLLARS (at only 10 pesos per dollar). There was no advance notice of either. Unless you have pesos readily at hand, AVOID THIS PLACE. You are barely welcome. On... More

We went for lunch, after walking about the city all morning. We were shown to our table by a very correct waiter, and found ourselves to be the only gringos there. We ordered freshly-made fruit and vegetable juices to start, both of which were very nice. I ordered the beef tongue, meltingly rich, with a piquant, tangy salsa verde, and... More

It says something that La Flor de Oaxaca has been around for 53 years. Good traditional Oaxacan food, and one of the few places I found that serves Mole Amarillo.
