We needed to eat early, restaurant normally open 20.00hrs Pablo suggested we come 19.30hrs so that we could be away by 21.15. We were made most welcome, the food was excellent and value for money. We were able to leave with 5 minutes to spare having thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will return with friends to enjoy the experience and... More

It is always a pleasure to visit La Catedral. The meat menu is a bit limited - steak or pork - but the presentation is first class and the cooking is excellent. Good wines - so I am told! Our friends really enjoyed the owner's guided tour. Service was very good.

Just outside the exit from the Roman auditorium is a gorgeous bar / restaurant called La Catedral and it's fabulous.

Our group of 8 hungry motor bikers descended on this place on a busy Friday night without a reservation. They were full but were most helpful and set up a table outside on top of the steps overlooking the Amphitheatre. We were not sure what to have so just left it to the waiter who brought a succession of delicious... More

Dear customer, It is always a pleasure for us to try (at least) to satisfy everybody who reach our house, even when sometimes is impossible as our place is really small.

Our 3rd visit here in a year, must say that serving standards are slipping, even when it was nothing like as busy this visit. Took a long time for our waiter to take our drinks order and get them on the table. The starter order was not fully served and one diner had to wait whilst a replacement was provided.... More

After the usual wait to be served….four staff on their phone. Interesting floors inside and worth having a look around the interior. I enjoyed a table outside with a most enjoyable (and generous) warm artichoke salad and a few beers. Not expensive. Extensive menu - no difficulty to find something to eat. If this is the best in the city... More

La Catedral is situated just in the middle of the city very near the Roman Theatre. The setting and the service is excellent. You got a lot of very nice food. We shared both the courses and still could not eat it all so we strongly recomend you to shared courses.

It is a cozy, well decorated and pleasant site. The staff is young and dynamic, good deal. The menu focuses mainly on tuna and beef, so you are missing something more variety. the quality is good, and the presentation too. the price is adjusted.
