“A wonderful place for a special evening”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We celebrated a very special birthday by dining at Catedral. The food was wonderful as was the service. A perfect place for a romantic dinner....very soft lights and low music. Only negative was quite unusual for a Mexican restaurant....but we were some what rushed. If you want to "dine" I would suggest telling the staff that you are dining....and want to take it slow.

“wonderful and innovative”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Had the stun, crusted in pepper and spices. The presentation was spectacular and the flavour amazing. My companion had the shrimp tacos (only 120 pesos), almost as good as the tuna. Prices very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.

“A night and meal to remember”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

A year ago we visited the Catedral restaurant on a Sunday for their buffet and enjoyed it greatly. This year, we chose to visit for our last dinner and had an unforgettable experience. We were seated in the inner dining area, right next to the subtle fountain. Lights were low key creating a very mellow atmosphere. Since this was our last meal, we decided to splurge and ordered everything from appetizers to desert, along with a bottle of wine.

The corn tamales with cream and queso fresco and the pulpo salad appetizers were simply delicious. Our entrees included short ribs and the roasted young pork plate, and were perfectly cooked, wonderfully presented, and delectable. The Chilean Merlot was a perfect accompaniment to the meal,

Halfway through our meal, the ceiling slowly rolled back, revealing the blue sky with billowing clouds reflecting the setting sun. After about 30 minutes, as dark storm clouds rolled in, the ceiling rolled shut and shortly thereafter we were treated to the sounds of a fierce tropical downpour.

Service was impeccable and the cost very reasonable for the total experience (under $100 US). It was a night we will treasure and remember for quite a while.

“Great meal, great setting, wonderful service”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Highly recommended if it's within your budget. Not expensive by the standards of large cities in the US. Great meal, great setting, wonderful service.

“THE best restaurant in Oaxaca.”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

In this restaurant you get to eat the best Oaxaca's traditional dishes with a gourmet fusion twist. I was surprised by the quality of the food, As we ordered different appetizers, I was already in deeply love with the food. The presentation of the dishes was precise, clean , and elegant. And I don't even want to get into the flavour... EXQUISITE. The best that I had have in Oaxaca, and I've been places there. The food was getting better and better as we went for more entrees, the main dish and even dessert, the best corn bread I had ever had. This restaurant is great for a romantic evening, a family dinner, and even with friends. It has a way to embrace every aspect of the Oaxacan tradition.
