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. Restaurant has a good atmosphere and character though limited space if the downstairs area is not open. Best to book ahead to ensure a good table. We enjoyed the food but... More

What an amazing find whilst walking the old town streets in Cartagena we went into La Catedral for a drink and were instantly surprised by the interesting menu, very different to most restaurants we have been in the south of Spain. We both had salad starters - I had a vegetarian one full of seeds, nuts, raisins and sundried tomatoes... More

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.

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.
