As I was looking up details for the restaurant I was surprised that I have not previously written a review. My husband and I eat at Casa de la Chef about 3 times a week. They have a great 60 peso meal offering. You get a big bowl of a cream soup, a salad, and a choice of main plate... More

This is a very small restaurant, not easy to find, but worth the effort. They offered a four-course comida corrida for 60 pesos. This included soup, salad, main dish, and dessert, plus fruited water and bread or tortillas. That day the soup was cream of mushroom, the salad crisp lettuce and jicama, the dessert thinly sliced bananas with a drizzled... More

Our friends took us to their local restaurant where they were enjoying their meals on a daily basis. Signage is on the building wall only, well obscured by a growth of trees. Probably the first thing you would note here are the very reasonable prices...60 pesos for Comida and apparently the same for breakfast. We, however, opted for the salmon... More

We've had several desayunos and comidas here during the last month and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. Good value.

Hidden restaurant. Delicious meals. Good if looking for local, freshly made meals with Oaxaca flavors. It is across the street of the One hotel. Center Oaxaca. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very accomodating to the customers. For lunch time, I ordered the vegetarian tacos made with zuccini, spinach, mushrooms, fresh aromatic herbs and oaxacan style cheese on flour tortilla... More

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. They welcomed us in at 6pm despite the fact that they had closed at 5pm (which we hadn't realized). What they offer is a "Menu Diario" which is a set menu including a non-alcoholic drink, soup, salad, entree, and dessert for 55 pesos (about $4). The food was yummy,... More

I really lile the friendly service and welcome greetings. La Chef speaks English in case you don't understand the two options for the Menu of Day. The food is good and the price of 55 pesos is very reasonable for soup, salad, entre and small "postre"

Once I discovered this gem of a restaurant in Oaxaca, I was hooked and couldn't tear myself away. Sonia, the chef, is a master. She makes the most amazing dishes with flavors I have yet to sample on my culinary sojourn around the world. I felt I was in the west, not somewhere in southern Mexico. With a culinary background...
