As we intended to visit the Roman theatre and the interesting Art Museum in Cartagena (we live in Spain) I visted the information of customers who had been at the restaurant La Catedral, published by Trip Advisor. I guess that reports of the persons which wrote such enthusiastic reviews are not used to visit high quality restaurants as our experience... More

This restaurant is situated beside the Teatro Romano, near the Calle Mayor in the centre of the old historic city of Cartagena. The Teatro Romano provides a spectacular back-drop at the entrance to the restaurant, and one is further reminded of the antiquity that lies underfoot when walking over the glass floor through which remains of the old Roman city...

The approach to this restaurant and the actual setting is just beautiful. It was busy, but the whole of Cartagena was. We later found out there is a city wide tapas crawl promotion on.

Located right next to the Roman Theater they installed see-through flooring so visitors can look all the way to the foundation where there are foundation and irrigation channels that are part of the ancient Roman Theater and Cathedral. They will provide a tour of the restaraunt if requested...was very interesting!

We were seated downstairs where the floor is of glass and you can see the roman foundations below you. The service was precise, attentive (but not overbearing), professional and polite. Faultless.

Great location if you are visiting the city, next to the Roman amphitheatre and the Calle Mayor. Outside dining if you prefer and good for meeting friends for copas.
