Overall an absolutely wonderful restaurant whether dining with a large group, small family or just a couple. The courtyard 'patio' offers up an open air view to the night sky as you can relax and enjoy the many moles and entrees on the menu. Shrimp tacos from the appetizer menu are simply amazing. Spend some time with a bottle of... More

We had a delicious meal at El Catedral. There is a good variety, some selections even lean toward an Asian theme. I had a sauted shrimp dish accompanied with avocado in a mayonnaise chili sauce that was delicious. They also offer regional dishes that I'm sure would not disappoint.

The place has a great serious atmosphere, though the food lacks effort. Typical food with nothing to amaze.

My friends and I ate two meals at Catedral, and would have gone back with joy. At both Sunday brunch and dinner we were seated in the lovely courtyard and found the service to be top notch (particularly at dinner), the food presentations very appealing, and the dishes themselves very flavorful and delicious. The Tamalito de Elote and the pork... More

The setting and food are above average. I ate here with a group and we were treated well. Every course was a treat for my palette. The evening was topped off with rich espresso and a chocolate torte-like dessert that looked like a masterpiece. Take time to treat yourself at Catedral Restaurante & Bar.

i'd never heard of chichilo, one of the seven oaxacan moles. it's dark and earthy, perfectly matching the beef short ribs that i ordered. this was the single best dish i had in oaxaca! the desserts were also the best we had during five days of sampling oaxacan restaurants. do not miss this restaurant!

My wife and I went for dinner and were totally impressed. Everything was world-class, the setting, the service, the menu, and the wine list. Compares favorably with many first-class restaurants we have eaten in both in the U.S. and Europe. Definitely recommend
