“Catederal clearly is #1 or the next thing to it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

We have spent almost 1 1/2 years in Oaxaca, spread over a 5-6 year period (Jan-March time frame).

Needless to say we've visited many excellent restaurants - this is the best for food quality and overall great value. It is a bit expensive for the Oaxaca area but certainly not a huge detriment.

The Sunday brunch is well known in the area!

“yumbo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We just had a wonderful, and memorable meal here. Inovative, tasty choices. Started with the scallops, which I liked very much, and wereotoo spicy for my sweetie. I had a mole with short ribs, and recommend it, and he had a filet which he is still talking about. We wanted to go back a second time, but they were booked. .

“OVERRATED, OVERPRICED AND AWFUL SERVICE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

I went to the restaurant which was suposed to be a great expirience and in my opinion the food was average and the service was dreadful we had to wait a log while to get served and it took forever to get the check, i had to actually leave in order for them to get the check.
The mole was not the best in oaxaca and price wise it was very expensive for such a mediocre service and food.

“Gourmet Mexican food at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
