Fodor's Expert Review Los Danzantes
Named for the dancing figures carved in stone at the nearby ruins of Monte Albán, this restaurant fuses the new and the old with dishes such as hierba santa asada, a local leaf stuffed with goat cheese and Oaxacan cheese; and ravioli with huitlacoche (corn fungus) in one sauce of squash flower and another of green chili and cream. The three-story earth-color walls, consisting of triangular columns of rough stone, are reflected in a pool that takes up about half the open-air space. The service is perfectly attentive. Expect to dine exclusively in the company of other tourists.
