My brother and I had dinner here during Dias de los Muertos celebrations and were really pleased with everything about this restaurant.
The staff works like a well oiled machine to notice and take care of the guests, whether it’s “their” table or not. The food was fantastic! I had the filet mignon with pasilla chili sauce with a hint of cinnamon. It was visually beautiful, sitting in the sauce with a little circle of roasted green pepper (not sure what kind of a pepper, certainly not bell!) on top and a small thin fresh red chile standing up on top. The steak was cooked to perfection, but that sauce is something ethereal, to my taste anyway. On the plate was also a tasty tamale filled with beans and other deliciousness. The roasted vegetable salad was also very good.
My brother had the roast suckling pig entree and said it was scrumptious too. The chocolate dessert with chocolate ice cream (or sorbet?) hit all the best notes in the dessert category.
They have a great menu, extensive wine list and wonderful mezcal.
I highly recommend this restaurant and will return when in Oaxaca!

We wanted to taste some mexican food, especially mole negro. We Got much more!

From start to end, The service was so exellent and The waiter was observant and kind! A guitarist played silently in The backgound, most of The meal....

We started with The mushroom soup. It was so delicate! Then We Got a selection of local specialities, and ended with a good cup of coffee and sorbet icecream ..... 6 different kinds! A great meal. We Can really recommend this restaurant!!! Try The soup!

Situated close to the Zocalo, Restaurante Catedral combines old fashioned elegance with excellent cuisine. The open air patio is the place to be for a romantic dinner, and the music, which often features an astonishingly talented singer and guitarist named Bebo Pimentel, makes the overall experience magical. Don't miss this.

We came for breakfast and were seated in the corner without menus. After watching several tables seated and served, we had to flag down a waiter. Were were brought coffee as requested but waited quite a bit longer even for menus. No one ever came to take our order and we finally just requested the bill and headed elsewhere.
