The place is very well located just around the main cathedral in the city center, and it captures the essence of the city with its decoration. You should be aware that taking into considerations Oaxaca prices this is an expensive place, if you are okey with that then you will have an amazing culinary experience that offers you the best...

A bit more formal, but a wonderful place to try local specialties in an elegant setting. Good choice of Mezcals and cocktails too.

This is a beautiful restaurant with an outdoor patio and water fountain. The food was a wonderful surprise. Traditional food served in an untraditional format. We ordered a sampler platter which included large portions of delicious of mole, cheese and chorizo. Foodies will love this place! There also the added bonus of live music during the meal. Definitely check it... More

Delicious food and great service. Prices are high for Oaxaca but it is worthy. The garnachas were the best!

Delicious from start to finish. We loved the Oaxaca plater with a nice glass of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon and romantic guitar music. A great way to start the evening.

I have been in Oaxaca since sunday. My hotel is right next to "Catedral" so I was curious and tried it. CREATIVE menu, AWESOME & DELICIOUS Food. GREAT service and the place is GORGEOUS. A must when visiting Oaxaca. Congratulations to the owners & the staff.

By far the best Margarita in Oaxaca and the courtyard dining area is terrific. I was told that it was a former home of Presidente Porfirio Diaz. I tried a tasty sample platter that had a little bit of everything, including mole, of course. I didn't think the prices were that outrageous, but certainly high for Mexico. Staff was great....

We had heard that this was one of the top restaurants to visit while in Oaxaca so we went with high hopes for an unforgettable experience. It's not that the food was bad but was nothing special. The entrees were dry and weak Just OK

Delicious drinks, beautiful courtyard, talented guitar player and the food... I wish we'd shared courses and therefore made it to pudding...! Best mole we had in Mexico. Bar none.
