Local favorite. Good, basic mexican food. Platos come with a rich red mole sauce on enchaladas, so if you want to experience the flavor of the food spend an extra buck and get the green.

Otaez was once my favorite Mexican Restaurant I love the burrito. I use to go once a week, Now they raise the price and the portion are smaller. Now I only go once a month at best. Still enjoy the place.

Many selections to choose from. Interior reflects the mexican culture. Great place for watching sports and to find quite a few margaritas.

I only wish I could give zero stars. I can't review their food, only their horrific customer service. It was my partner's bday and he wanted Mexican food so we found a spot with outdoor patio so we could potentially bring our dog. I called before we came to confirm it was OK to bring her. The gentleman that answered... More

Always great food and always great service. It's been rough with some of our favorite Mexican Restaurants in Alameda no longer being in business but I think after years of frequenting Otaez I have settled that they are now my favorite in Alameda. Many items on the menu to choose from and always fresh and delicious.

I always know when I eat here to expect good food. I especially like their enchiladas with poblano sauce. The lady owner is always around to make sure the place runs like clockwork and that customers are happy. Well, I am happy.

Our entire experience was wonderful! The waitress was helpful and patient, the food was unbelievable, big portions and nice atmosphere. I even ate leftovers cold and they were still so good! Highly recommend. Service was fast but I should mention we went after lunch and before dinner so was not a busy time.

My family came here since it was across our hotel and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. All of us enjoyed our dinners (beef fajitas, machacas, shrimp taco and fish taco). The only negatives were the fries which was clearly from a frozen bagand the attitude of our waitress initially....
