The service is a bit distracted at chef Pilar Cabrera's combination gallery-café, so you'll have plenty of time to admire the works by local artists that adorn the walls. The food makes up for any shortcomings, however. Start with the tlayuda azteca, a Mexican-style pizza topped with chicken, avocado, and stringy Oaxacan cheese. The sampler plate includes everything from strips of beef to seasoned pork to chapulines (fried grasshoppers). They also serve
a different comida corrida, or prix-fixe menu, every afternoon. Cooking classes are also available.

60 pesos? Maybe a decade ago. It's now 90. It was 70 on my last trip 5 years ago. This place used to be the best. Now it's just OK. Everything is about 60% as good as it used to be - I would imagine because of it's popularity with tourists. I mean, seriously, the tortillas aren't even homemade anymore. Boo.

The restaurant must have read Fodors review of distracted service and have made an effort to be very attentive. The food is still excellent and great for anyone who is trying not to wreck their diet, yet still wanting to try local cuisine. It is one of the few restaurants in Oaxaca where I have been able to find great salads.
