“Surprised it is #1”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I agree with the other reviews that the restaurant's service was outstanding. Our waiter was attentive and helpful.I would rate service with 5 stars . The location was quiet, comfortable and romantic. However, the food was below average. The meat was overcooked and dry. The pasta plain which isn't always bad but when mixed with little taste leads to disappointment.

“Terrific Cafe, will return again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

After reading about Epicuro on TA, we felt we had to try it. We have been coming to Oaxaca for years, so we are always looking for somewhere new. We weren't disappointed. Great looking spot and very comfortable & bright, and nicely decorated. The owner soon introduced himself and was very gracious and between the waiter and owner, we had a very nice lunch. A fruit and lettuce salad was preceded with a little appetizer - a veggie tart, and both were delicious. We followed with a penne with prawn, zucchini and red onion. Also delicious, but there could have been a couple more prawns. The only hiccup was the coffee machine wasn't turned on and we were in early so we had to wait for coffees. In the meantime, we ordered a panna cotta that was out of this world - the best I have had anywhere, and then they comped the coffees because of the long wait . A very nice luch and judging from the focaccia we tasted in the bread basket, we will be back for very delicious pizza at a later date.

“Relaxing place for lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We visited the Bistro Cafe Epicuro today for lunch based on TripAdvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed. Only a few blocks from the Zocolo, we would have missed seeing it as it is not on the most traveled tourist street. The ambiance was so relaxing. Gloria our waitress was so patient, attentive, and kind to us. The food was unique and yet Italian. We loved every bit of this place, even the restrooms. Thank you TripAdvisor writers.
