Fodor's Review

An outdoor lunch buffet, from 1:30 to 6:30, is a great reason to venture outside the city to this restaurant 3 km (2 mi) east of Oaxaca on the road to Mitla. Waiters bring you a welcome cocktail and a typical appetizer, such as taquitos de pollo (small tacos filled with chicken) or memelas (fried discs of cornmeal topped with goodies). You then select from more than 70 Mexican dishes, including several kinds of meat fresh from the grill. You can linger here,

listening to wandering mariachi and marimba musicians—and let the kids loose on the small playground.

Too Good To Be Out in the Open

I came across "La Escondida" 3 years ago on my first trip to Oaxaca. I've returned several times since then and found every experience a great one. The trip across town in worth every penny; there is food to satisfy every taste bud and the service is excellent.
