Flavors are amazing, complex but delicius. Oxaca's best in an elegant and sharp setting. One suggestiona althoug. Very little choices in beers. Maybe add some more brands, the well known ones and also more of the locals.

The Restaurante Catedral ranks among Oaxaca's best restaurants, and with good reason. A short walk from the zocalo, it serves up innovatively prepared local cuisine in an elegant old world setting. The patio is always lively, so those looking for a more intimate experience might wish to sit in the formal dining rooms, with their ornate wall treatments and chandeliers.... More

Good food, not extraordinary, but good. Service is excellent. The prices are about the highest in Oaxaca.

What a restaurant!. There's a patio, a salons. We had a table on the patio, the place is beautiful, service is amazing and the quality of the plates unbelievable. Ask for the waiter to recommend you what to eat, don't forget to drink a Mezcal and a craft beer. Can't leave Oaxaca without trying this place, you won't regret it.

I cannot rave enough about this place. I've never been a fan of mole (having tried it over and over again), but this restaurant blew our minds! They have 7 types of mole and it literally melted in my mouth. Total food porn. Can't wait to go back.

We had dinner, lunch and breakfast at this brilliant location. Everything was delicious and interesting and we enjoyed the variety and diversity of the dishes, all with superb local elements. We would thoroughly recommend this place. Sit on the terrace if you can. We enjoyed live music in the evening. Staff very obliging.

Food and place is great. Mostly, traditional food with a nouvel twist. Prices are not cheap, not expensive. Recommended when going to Oaxaca.

If you want a restaurant that takes pride in its food in every aspect and features local cuisine this is it. Yes it's more expensive than some but it's worth it. Great moles. Tip..make a reservation to be seated in the courtyard which has a lovey atmosphere. No reservation will see you seated in the brightly lit area. Menu is... More
