Excellently prepared food, great flavors, well seasoned, well plated. Walter, the chef, came to our table, we talked and complemented him on his food. I could tell he is zealous of hi trade, disciplined and experienced. We talked for about 30 minutes and ended up joking and laughing, very nice guy. Very nice time, would definitely return.

Okay, the food in Oaxaca is fantastic I will not dispute this point but after five or so days straight I just wanted a change of pace.

We wanted a change from the usual Mexican fare so decided to try this Italian place, based on the good reviews. The front of house staff are very pleasant and asked for feedback. I told them this: (i) the restaurant is badly located, away from the action in the centre of town (although it´s within walking distance of the zocalo);(ii)... More

The last thing I expected when going to Oaxaca was to have the Best Italian food I've ever tasted! I have traveled to many countries, including Italy and Argentina, and I can say I was surprised to find this gem in Oaxaca! The food is amazing... they have the best Octopus Carpaccio I have ever tasted, delicious eggplant parmigiana and... More

I've drunk lots of wine and I've traveled a fair bit through Mexico but I've never had a Mexican wine. Cafe Bistrot Epicuro served a Petite Syrah that set off the eggplant surprise appetizer (roasted over wood with olive oil and garlic, on fresh, crusty pane). A shelf of Italian and French books, including an Italian self-help book about flying... More

The food was excellent and the service was even better! Carlos was an absolutely great host and waiter, very patient, very considerate, and he also gave us a special something. I would totally recommend this restaurant and I'm definitely coming back! Hasta la próxima :)

I've been in Oaxaca for 5 weeks and have only strayed from Mexican cuisine twice. I was just surfing restaurants when I read the comments about Cafe Bistrot Epicuro and so I decided to go. I am so happy that I did. It is visually lovely, with a very high ceiling, white tablecloths, fresh flowers on every table and a... More

We had a little trouble finding this restaurant at night...(by walking) but it was worth the trouble. I was in the mood for something other than Mexican food....and this Italian restaurant was a great choice. We went due to TA reviews. I had pasta with shrimp...and it was very delicious...and my husband had lasagna...also great! Our waiter was perhaps new... More
