I was so underwhelmed by this restaurant. How is it number one on here? I feel like I’ve missed something. The food and service were decidedly average. Casa Oaxaca is by far the better restaurant. Don’t waste your money here.

Beautiful courtyard setting. Service was spot on, not intrusive, not ignoring us. Food was outstanding for both carnivores and vegetarians. Nice wine list, with many excellent Mexican wines and other international wines. I can highly recommend and will go back on a return trip

Well prepared, lovely Oaxacan plates. Nice wine list. Can reserve tables on OpenTable. Courtyard is a better place to sit, as the indoor rooms were particularly noisy with kids and street noise on our visit.

Excellent food and service in a Hacienda type restaurant. Very Mexican motif. Don't miss the courtesy chocolate Mescal aperitif before ordering your meal. (And I don't even care for mescal) It was Yummy!

The food and service here is wonderful. We had a couple of the mole dishes and we found the food here close to the best food that we have had in Mexico. Highly recommended.

Our visit to Catedral was sublime. From the lovely Mexican wine, to the stunning desserts, the food and service surpassed all expectations and deserves to be rated as the best restaurant in the area. Menus in English are a nice bonus for the Spanish-impaired, as...More

Catedral is an outstanding restaurant. The ambience is delightful and peaceful. The food is out-of-this-world delicious. The service was outstanding. And the authentic Mexican guitar music was a wonderful addition. We enjoyed two different salads, both of which were delicious; my husband ordered the tuna,...More

No dress code that we noticed. It's an upscale resto though, so people weren't in shorts.

Yes, they still had it in November 2016. The price is about $200 pesos. They told me at the restaurant that it the buffet will continue to be offered: excellent value, good opportunity to try a variety of dishes.
