“Great Experiencie!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

Typical Oaxaca ethnic gourmet food ! Try mole negro and the greatest meat Tlayudas !! Just delicious!... Also ask for their fruit Aguas and the Salmon with cus cus... You will be delighted!... The service is great too. Excellent price performance restaurant ! Located at one block from the zocalo... Enjoy!

“Beautiful setting, romantic music”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The restaurant is lovely with wonderful music to enhance the romantic setting. The service
is top notch which is not true in many restaurants. although the food is not the best in town, it is good and well worth a trip to El Catedral.

“Dined here twice”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We dined here twice, very beautiful, romantic open-air patio with fountain in courtyard, walls painted deep red. First time my husband had shrimp tacos which were roasted and very tasty. I had brisket which was a bit grissly, but in a tasty sauce. The next time we dined here we sat at a table closer to the fountain. We had short ribs which were outstanding, very tender in a dark sauce, not a mole, but very good! Very nice ambiance and service was very good.

“A great choice for authenic Oaxacan cuisine”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

This (along with Casa Oaxaca) was on the list of four restaurants I intended to try, and I ended up returning to the two just to try additional dishes. Of the two, I'll give Catedral a slight edge. Attractive and comfortable courtyard and attentive service, but the outstanding feature was the food. I came to Oaxaca in large part to sample the cuisine, and this was an amazing place to do it. Would I say one of best meals I've every had? No but close. Definitely among the best Mexican meals. Was actually here in February 2013, but that is no longer an option I can enter.
