Again, lovely service and setting! Enjoyed the "ice cream" dessert, but felt the dinner itself was average. The flavors didn't jump out at me.

My husband and I came to eat here for lunch. They placed us in a small interior patio; it felt cramped and stuffy. It had no ambiance at all. The style is old Mexico, with hard, uncomfortable chairs. We had several different wait staff which was confusing, as we couldn't tell who was our waiter. No one ever asked us... More

I've eaten in great restaurants all over the world. This is one of them. Everything was perfect. Not only was the food excellently prepared and presented but the service and ambience were also excellent, creating a complete experience for the visitor. If you're in Oaxaca City, you should dine here.

We have always been reluctant to order steaks in Mexico but our experience at Catedral restaurante and bar changed our perception. Using Stirling grade beef our rib eye steaks were as good as we have ever had and the service and ambiance were excellent. Catedral is rated as one of the top restaurants in Oaxaca for good reason.

I had the Oaxaca soup, my companions shared the grasshopper appetizer. Both were delights. The soup a refreshing change from the all too standard fare. Mains we can recommend included the... More

Friendly staff, ok but not amazing food. The turkey with mole negro was decent but completely drowned in the mole, as were the accompanying plantains. The mole was good but we couldn't taste anything else. The design of the restaurant is a bit uneven, depending upon where you sit. The pin lighting can be harsh in places. The tejate foam... More

La Catedral is currently TripAdvisor's number one restaurant in Oaxaca, undoubtedly it deserves it! The food is top notch, service is attentive and the place is beautiful. I will definitely come back.

The best restaurant we tried in Oaxaca. Limited selection of local dishes perfectly prepared. As with other high end places we ate I found the price little more than a mediocre cafe.

Had breakfast here twice. I would highly recommend! The fruit plate is huge and delicious. I ordered the enchiladas and eggs with wrestling fantastic and large portions. The omelette station are all very good. The bread is wonderful as well as the coffee and hot chocolate.

Thank yeguerrero
