The food here is excellent, as is the service. There is a good mix of local food and more western dishes and a good wine list. We loved the desserts too. Definitely a must when coming to Oaxaca. We will be back!

Each Sunday afternoon, Catedral offers a buffet. They offer a large variety of dishes. The food is tasty, and well presented. The friendly staff, attentively clears the used dishes as you go and get the next portion. The price is reasonable.

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