We had an interesting diner as there was a local wedding going of both the service and then reception. We only saw the first part of the reception but it helped make the evening interesting. The waiters and staff were very nice. We had the ordered a sample of the local food which we split between the two of us.... More

Came in alone. Loved the singer/guitarist. Attention from the waiting staff was great. Was my first time in Oaxaca and even Mexico and was very useful to have the food described to me. Also got talked through the Mezcal choices and would have stayed for more if I didn't have to meet friends.

The service, food, the atmosphere were outstanding! Congratulations. Even if you are a Mexican citizen or well-acquanted with Oaxacan Cuisine, La Catedral is a place to be surprised because of the remarkable work of the Chefs involved in the different dishes cooking. EXCELLENT!!!!

The food was quite good. The ambience, not so much. Service was pretty good but not outstanding. My wife liked the cocktail she ordered but it wasn't the best she had in Oaxaca. The portions are medium sized, presentation was quite decent. Nice choices though menu does not have that many pages. We thought it would be pricey but our... More

I came to Catedral Restaurant because it was listed as one of the best in Oaxaca. The place is beautiful, and the service was nice. I loved that they had a singer (who's was terrific). The food was, however, a true disappointment. The rice (they served about a half a cup), was warm, the refried beans (also extremely small serving)... More

This was an "OMG" meal. The space is beautiful and the service was terrific, but the meal was an over the top "OMG how did the chef do this" experience. The small tamale appetizer was the best tamale I've had in my life -- EVER (and I'm something of a tamale connoisseur). My main course was a yellow molé with... More

Catedral restaurant on Garcia Vigil in Oaxaca is outstanding! I wanted to try the best local Mezcal, Tobasiche, next best, Espadin, with chili salt and orange slices-- it was perfecto! Tierra Blanca beer, also local, was excellent, but the food was magnificent! I want to try all the dishes on the menu (printed in English and Spanish, a real help),... More

One of the best meals I have had anywhere. This beautiful restaurant serves all seven moles as well as other Oaxacan specialties such as Tlayudas. The desserts were like artwork.

Except for the very high prices, most everything is very good at the Catedreal. This is the place to go if you want to impress your friends and you will when you pay the bill.
