Two and a half weeks into a three week Spanish immersion trip, we found Cafe Bistrot Epicuro in Oaxaca City, Mexico. This restaurant rivals high end eateries in Chicago and New York. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. We experienced the full dinner of salad, entree and dessert including craft beer and great wine. The Mediterranean influence was subtle in the salad and the tuna with my salmon having the Spanish touch of a mango salsa. Coffee was freshly brewed with newly ground beans. Dessert was chocolate flan and tiramisu. Both had the right balance of lightness yet flavorful-delicious! Cold Limoncello was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. The owner needs to be commended for a lovely setting and having a chef and wait staff that attends to every detail from the garnishes to the freshness of the food and the ultimate presentation.

Bistrot Epicuro is a delightful change of pace after many days of good Oaxacan food. The pizza is excellent, the pastas varied and tasty and the other dishes, including calamari, shrimp and interesting amusesbouches, are high quality. The staff is friendly, enthusiastic and helpful, accommodating a large group with no advanced notice. The ambience is relaxed and comfortable. We had a fabulous meal that was a welcome alternative to comida typica in Oaxaca.

The other day my friend and I went to Epicuro. I had walked by earlier in the week and seen it's welcoming and fresh decor. We both found the food to be exceptional, service welcoming and everything all top notch. Was great and highly recommend it!

Excellent service and wonderful ambience, food was amazing specially the pizzas... And the Italian owners were so friendly and approachable from the beginning they provided a disclaimer that states that nor they nor the customer is always right... It's the balance that brings harmony.

I had seen a little pamphlet about it, so when I came across the restaurant I decided to go in. Humble, tranquil, full of books; nothing too fancy. At the first step in I got the warmest welcome by a waitress, who offered me the seat of my choice, a book and a lovely welcome card! From then everything was fantastic! The food, the ambience, the service and attention... I definitely recommend this original italian place. Every cent spent is worth it.
