I've drunk lots of wine and I've traveled a fair bit through Mexico but I've never had a Mexican wine. Cafe Bistrot Epicuro served a Petite Syrah that set off the eggplant surprise appetizer (roasted over wood with olive oil and garlic, on fresh, crusty pane). A shelf of Italian and French books, including an Italian self-help book about flying... More

The food was excellent and the service was even better! Carlos was an absolutely great host and waiter, very patient, very considerate, and he also gave us a special something. I would totally recommend this restaurant and I'm definitely coming back! Hasta la próxima :)

I've been in Oaxaca for 5 weeks and have only strayed from Mexican cuisine twice. I was just surfing restaurants when I read the comments about Cafe Bistrot Epicuro and so I decided to go. I am so happy that I did. It is visually lovely, with a very high ceiling, white tablecloths, fresh flowers on every table and a... More

We had a little trouble finding this restaurant at night...(by walking) but it was worth the trouble. I was in the mood for something other than Mexican food....and this Italian restaurant was a great choice. We went due to TA reviews. I had pasta with shrimp...and it was very delicious...and my husband had lasagna...also great! Our waiter was perhaps new... More

After eating at Epicuro last November where we had poor service, I said I would not return but I had a chef/hotel owner friend in town in January and decided I would give Epicuro another chance. The waiter was excellent; he even brought me a glass of water with ice without my asking while I waited for my friend to... More

We were here tonight, and we both had the beef lasagna. It came accompanied by apple slices but no other vegetables. It was very good, with portions big enough for us, but hearty eaters may find the size modest. We ordered wine by the glass, specifically a Chilean merlot. It was opened at the table where our portions were poured.... More

Friendly and professional service at this lovely Italian restaurant. My boyfriend was poorly so I took myself off for some comfort food. Complimentary appetizer was tasty, along with the bread. My starter of ensalada caprese was generous and delicious. Had the carbonara which was very good. Too full for dessert but really appreciated the complimentary ice cream! Can recommend for... More

Great little restaurant just a stones throw away from our hostel. Had excellent pizza here and we were treated to a small starter and small dessert on the house. When our waiter heard us mention Mezcal, he gave us all a small shot glass. Highly recommended.

On a Monday evening in Jan., this Italian restaurant was quiet. Four of had a very good Montipulciano red for 290 pesos, about $14.50 at the present exchange rate. The staff brought out a small tasting of thinly cooked eggplant. Different choices of bread were in the bread basket. Between us we had a salad, a pesto spaghetti dinner, two... More
