This is a very unique restaurant where the owner takes a personal interest in all his guests in an intimate atmosphere.

Been here twice and not been disappointed. Food and service on both occasions fantastic. Only had slight problem on second visit with temperature of food but was sorted straightaway with no hassle or complaints. An advantage for those of us who speak English but little or no Spanish they have a British waiter. All staff are more than happy to... More

Conveniently situated next to el teatro, the choice and quality of the food and wine available was excellent. El jefe Pablo was charming and is a jazz aficionado so the music was to our taste as well! The place was vey busy so there was a great atmosphere and it was not too formal. Booking is probably recommended. One slight... More

Unfortunately was only taken to this restaurant the day before returning to the UK. A really fabulous place serving great food with excellent service. I had the prawn and seaweed salad followed by the Stroganoff of Pork - both dishes were really delicious. My companion had the tomato salad followed by Roasted Cod with honey and pine nuts - sounded... More

Found the place after searching on TripAdvisor but was fully booked the night we had a look in. Booked for night after and what a great experience. Attentive service and excellent food. Would highly recommend this restaurant. We'll be regular visors from now on.

We returned here with 4 friends, having extolled the virtues of La Catedral. The food was wonderful, as before, but we got extremely irritated by cursory and pretty rude service. Our choices for starters were derided - we were told it was not advisable for 3 people to have the same thing - their choices.... We had to almost catch... More

The meal at this wonderful restaurant was a highlight of our two day visit to Cartagena. The welcoming manager was clearly proud of the history of the building and insisted on showing us the cellars, an unusual beginning to an evening to remember. The menu selection was vast but I chose the steak with foie, cooked medium rare, and it... More

Brilliant service Stylish menu options. "Birds nest" starter was good fun and tasty to eat! Salads were fresh and tasty Steaks to die for, served with a warm cabbage "salad" We did have a problem with one of the dishes but it was dealt with quickly and quietly Highly recommended for lunch after a trip to the Roman theatre!
