“Oaxacan Food to Die For!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Catedral restaurant on Garcia Vigil in Oaxaca is outstanding! I wanted to try the best local Mezcal, Tobasiche, next best, Espadin, with chili salt and orange slices-- it was perfecto! Tierra Blanca beer, also local, was excellent, but the food was magnificent! I want to try all the dishes on the menu (printed in English and Spanish, a real help), so we'll be back.
I especially liked the Verdolaga, a green vegetable somewhat like sunflower sprouts in flavor, delicious with fried Oaxacan cheese, surrounded by fava beans and nopal slices in a basil sauce! Pasillo chili sauce came with the bread, and my friend devoured the whole bowl of tasty sauce. We tried the fresh cream and corn tamal--subtle and sweet; Jubileo, our waiter, gave us perfect service. Considering that we walked in to the gorgeous red painted restaurant after 10pm, without a reservation, tired and hungry and wanting that first taste of Oaxaca, we were very happy travelers.

Reviewed 5 June 2014

One of the best meals I have had anywhere. This beautiful restaurant serves all seven moles as well as other Oaxacan specialties such as Tlayudas. The desserts were like artwork.

“Go here to impress your friends”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Except for the very high prices, most everything is very good at the Catedreal. This is the place to go if you want to impress your friends and you will when you pay the bill.

“Best nopales ever!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We ate at this restaurant on a recommendation from our hotel and we were glad we did! Amazing mole and other typical Oaxacan specialties including the most amazing nopales I have ever tasted! The restaurant also has a cute indoor patio with retractable roof which was great as it started to rain halfway through our meal and we didn't need to switch tables.
