I have been eating at Catedral since I started visiting Oaxaca and have never been disappointed. Excellent service, topped with delicious food. I enjoyed chicken in a red-type mole sauce, with slivered almonds. Wished I could have licked the bowl clean. My friend had shrimp tacos, which he said were the best he had eaten. We both started with a... More

Each Sunday afternoon, Catedral offers a buffet. They offer a large variety of dishes. The food is tasty, and well presented. The friendly staff, attentively clears the used dishes as you go and get the next portion. The price is reasonable.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us but I found the food to be only ok, the atmosphere a bit stuffy, and the prices very high for Oaxaca. There are much better choices to be had

Great food. Excellent option to try different types of moles but bad option to try mezcal and craft beer.

This place is a good place for Oaxaca type food, not really traditional, but really good presentation and great for a nice dinner.

Located close to the central square but not on it. This high class restaurant was very popular with locals and it is advisable to check there will be a table free in the evening as you pass by to the square. The food was excellent and the service exceptional. Not cheap but still great value for money. The atmosphere was... More

Yes the service was great but the food might have been about the best we ate in Oaxaca. The atmosphere was a little old school colonial but in a good way. Tablecloths, ornate darker decor but open air! We started with the corn tamale and the stuffed plantain. Both were superb. Or main course with we split ( hint) was... More

Started off with grilled Oaxaca cheese & beans with a zesty poblano sauce & the Kale salad with apples, dried cranberries, oaxacan cheese & a light vinaigrette. Our entress were a perfectly cooked red snapper with a spicy sauce & jalapeño smashed... More

This place was recommended to us by a local & it didn't disappoint, wonderful local dishes made into a fine dining experience, fabulous service and because this is Mexico, excellent value. All up a 3 course meal for 2 with wine cost under $75 US. Would definitely like to come back to try some of the other dishes!
