We had a great dinner here. Very charming restaurant and they had a musician who played Spanish songs...not too loud, so one can have a conversation. We had the Traditional Oxacan Platter, which was a different choice of meats and cheese, very filling and the Chichilo...braised short ribs, which was extremely tender. Great bar too! Would highly recommend this place!!

Lovely place nicely decorated with great breakfast. The chicharron, eggs and salsa bowl is a great option if you want a heavy breakfast. Very good coffee

From the moment you step in the place you will be amazed how it was modified to host a restaurant. Ask for a fresh spot to sit. Food and variety is great ask the waiter for his recommendations, entries and dishes are plenty and you may have trouble to finish all plates. Coffee is great and juices taste good.

We were the only ones in this room so it was quiet though. The guitar player was stationed at our door but was facing towards the patio which was a... More

Made a reservation online. Very professional and attentive service in the great Mexican tradition. Very good food, excellent Chilean wine at a reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere...lots of middle-class Mexicans on an evening out. You could not do better in central Oaxaca than visit Catedral. Cannot remember what the prices were, but I think they were fairly reasonable given the quality... More

I enjoyed my best meal at catedral. The mole was the best I have ever eaten. The was a guitar player and the ambiance was great and the food prices were very inexpensive for the level of service. If I return to Oaxaca, this will be my first stop!

My family and I came here for a late breakfast our first morning in Oaxaca without knowing what to expect. Our server was very nice and spoke English to try to help me with my 2yr old level Spanish.

The Catedral restaurant has incredible food, ambience and service. One of the most memorable culinary experiences I've had! The Oaxacan dishes in particular are not to be missed.
