Soooooo good

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.

It's not just the delicious food, which was the best I had in Oaxaca. There was a singer/guitarist who, without being obtrusive, was still too good for background music. The service was very polished and the setting was beautiful. It's a city with a lot of very good restaurants, but I went back on my last night and didn't regret... More

We ate her twice, once for dinner in the courtyard and then returned for lunch in the dining room a couple of days later. The food was great on both occasions and reasonably priced given how attractive the venue and service is Their.prawn tacos with chipotle mayonnaise should not be missed and even details like the warm cheese filled breads...

Our first evening in Oaxaca we went to Catedral, and it set the mood for our entire week. The food was excellent with a Oaxacan flare, the wait staff was extremely attentive and enjoyable and we listened to live guitar music the entire time. What better place to find the heart of Oaxaca.

Very attentive staff and a lovely courtyard where we sat for dinner. Very high quality modern Mexican food. There are seven different moles - we had two, the Almendrado & the Manchamanteles, both superb. I've posted a picture of the mole section of the menu.

We had our daughter's rehearsal dinner here at Catedral and let me tell you it was spectacular! The food is 5-star and the restaurant ambience is so warm and beautiful. Once it stopped raining, the roof was opened over our party and we could see the moon and the stars and flickering lights. And the guitar player keeps it festive... More

Delicious place, been coming here for a couple of years, I would say its one of the best high end restaurants in Oaxaca. The service is excellent. The food is phenomenal! Don't leave Oaxaca without trying this place...

We've been coming here since 2003 and it never fails to impress. The food is out of this world, the service is impeccable, the little courtyard room is very romantic and the live music they have is perfect. We've eaten many things here, but my favorite is the spare ribs in Chichilo mole and the Lechon, which is roasted to... More

Superlative in every way. Service, food and ambiance are all great. Oaxacan cuisine with a somewhat modern twist. Best mole I have ever had.

Had lunch at Catedral... Excellent experience. I definitely recommend the Chapilines, the Mole, and the selection of sherbet at the end... Divine...very attentive and professional service...
