This outside cafe is located right on the Zocalo, great for people watching, but bad for vendor overload and beggars. We ate here three consecutive nights because of the location, reasonably priced menu items and available red and white wine. Two for one specials on...More

Late service, bad attitude of waiters. Expensive for the actual food. Please don't try it at any time. I don't know why they offer something they don't want or can not offer. And if you dare to ask for a faster service you will receive...More

The cafe is located in los portales at the Zocalo. The food is good and traditional. The chocolate is great and the mole is not that spicy, thus is it possible to enjoy it without dying in the attempt.

Right on the zocalo, so a great place for people watching and that's a good thing because you'll have time. I first visited this place in 1982, and I believe there may still be a few folks from then waiting for their check. Nothing much...More

The restaurant has a good location in Oaxaca's city centre. However, the food is not good at all (they managed to burn my meat...) and the coffee is simply horrible.

No attempt to accommodate partner’s vegetarian/allergy requests as salads were all pre-made. In the end, she had to leave her food untouched as salad arrived with ingredients not listed on the menu. Rightly so, her salad was taken off of the final bill. My cheeseburger...More

The most concurred place at los Portales del El Zocalo in Oaxaca since 1938. Cool traditional Cafe-Bar by under the arcades of a building of the eighteenth century, it was a cantina in its beginning, great for breakfast or lunch with both local or continental options, having a beer or your favorite drink with "botana" (free appetizers 12 to 4pm) and some snack or plate such as tortas, tacos, tlayudas, tamales. At night by 8 pm you might enjoy the ambiance created by the marimba which in some cases result in spontaneous dancing in the street. 80 years old Del Jardin Cafe Bar locally known as El Bar Jardin its a hallmark in Oaxaca you must not miss.
