“Gourmet Mexican food at it's best”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Don't miss eating at the restaurant - the food is sensational, the service great and the setting beautiful. What more can you ask for! We had two dishes - beef with mole and pork with mole - they were amazing. To top it all off, the prices are incredibly reasonable.

“Last night in Oaxaca...best send off!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We were in Oaxaca to visit my daughter on here spring semester abroad. We had been to all the other top restaurants in Oaxaca but saved Catedral for last. So glad we did. Had we dined here first it would have ruined us for the rest Oaxaca had to offer (which as excellent each and every meal).

The patio next to the fountain was sublime. The guitarist was exceptional. The white wine from Mexico our waiter recommended was so wonderful, we ordered a second. It is seldom you get a level of service and quality at this price that i am sad we are not staying longer. But we will be back.

All i can say, if you are looking for a truly extraordinary meal in Oaxaca...Catedral is the place.

“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.
