Casa de Cantera — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Guelaguetza, Oaxacan Restaurant • (K)
Catering to domestic and foreign tourists, this restaurant stages mini-guelaguetza performances nightly, starting at 8:30 p.m. and costing 140 pesos. For dinner, a set, multi-course meal of Oaxacan food is served during the show, though not included in the price of admission. The restaurant is located in the middle-class Reforma neighborhood, a couple of kilometers north of the Zócalo, about a thirty-minute walk. Not interested in hoofing it, especially at night? A steady stream of cabs queue up at the taxi stand on the north side of the Alameda de León. However, before schlepping it all the way up here, be sure to call ahead and make a reservation for the show, particularly during the low seasons.
