Fodor's Review

Where did Mexican chefs learn how to make such pillow-soft gnocchi tossed with cherry tomatoes, red cabbage, and Serrano ham? This chic little eatery—more Central Park than Centro Histórico—dares to be different, and actually succeeds in the process. Although you can find some favorite local dishes on the menu, the kitchen's focus is contemporary cuisine with Oaxacan flair, like the squash-blossom soup sprinkled with tangy goat cheese. Tapas are available at the bar all day. Sometimes there's live jazz in the evening.

my favorite restaurant in Oaxaca

With some many good restaurants in this city it is difficult to agree in which is the best. My friends and I almost tried all of them. We were in town for a whole month. After all this time, and the service we got each time, Temple was our choice. Things we liked about it: The smile in the face of the staff, real Oaxacans and not foreigner who live in town and open a restaurant (which is common); the food, always fresh and tasty; the wine selection;

and their fair prices.

Excellent place

Excellent place, not just for a nice dinner but for a great time. The atmosphere is great: live jazz, great salads, great people. I loved it. Highly recommended.
