We have dined in this restaurant a number of times and would have highly recommended it. However on this occasion we were very disappointed. Staff were not very welcoming - one of the meals was served much later than the rest with no apology given. Steak tasted good however smaller portion size than I remember and the chips were cold....

We had a shared salad as a starter. Nice, but with slightly odd ingredients like raisins and a little too heavy on the salt. The mains were very good, perfectly cocked steaks and well tasting cod tempura. Can't go wrong with these. The desserts st the Cathedral are recommandable; we had cheesecske, tiramisu and fresh fruit. The service could improve... More

Dear customer, I use to say that service is something you never stop improving, mainly because at the catering buisness you are always in full contact with your customer, so every detail in each moment is important. We are always on top of the waiters, and even when most of the employees are full time sometimes we have to hire... More

We have tried to eat at this restaurant a few times after reading about it on tripadvisor but have always failed to bag a table ( our fault for not booking). We eventually made it yesterday and it has instantly become one of our favourite places in the region. Pedro (head waiter/owner ??) showed us around the beautiful building on... More

A group of us went here for a friends birthday and the experience was fantastic. Interior décor was great with glass floors above the old ruins of the city. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. Restaurant does not look much from outside but def worth a visit inside if only for a drink. Will go back... More

Cartagena is a wonderful City to visit with its harbour, mountains & all the fabulous shops to peruse - The City has a great history & trully magnificent buildings. This lovey restaurant is the one we always head for, we were given a warm welcome food arrived quickly & tasted great.

We decided to go to this restaurant because of Tripadvisor & were so pleased we did. There was a birthday party downstairs which meant we couldn't see the ruins through the floor as well as usual, but it was worth looking at. Its incredible to have a restaurant on top of ruins, but still see them, quite unique. The owner/manager... More
