“Good but overrated”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

When John Lennon was asked if Ringo Starr was the best drummer in England he replied that he wasn't sure that Ringo was the best drummer in the Beatles, let alone England. The Cafe Bistrot Epicuro is a beautiful restaurant and the service is excellent. The food, however, is good but not great and is very expensive. I don't think Cafe Bistrot Epicuro is the best Italian restaurant in Oaxaca and it is certainly does not deserve to be rated as the best over all.

“great place with great service”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

my family and i went to oaxaca for new years and one of the nights we stayed there, we went to this lovely restaurant wich have great service, and the food was delicious.. the chef was really nice with us too, gave us free dessert.. we love everything in this place.. i highly recomended.. its worth everything.. its not regional food but after a few days of eating food from oaxaca you feel like just eating somewhere else. like this lovely place. the tuna was delicious and the gold fish too.. my mom loved the salad and the carpaccio pretty good too.

“Great alternative to traditional regional cuisine”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

After a few days of eating traditional regional food, this place provided a warm atmosphere and great tasting food. The owners are very kind and present at all times.

“Great food, great service and good prices”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Excellent Italian food. The service was really good, extremely attentive (this being high season-December holidays).
Very cozy and friendly. Great for big families, couples or even to enjoy a meal by yourself.
Must try desserts and pizza!
