Great service

We sat outside the bar in the sunshine after climbing the steps up to the Roman Ampitheatre, and enjoyed a few beers and some tapas. The service was excellent.

We visited on March 15th 2015 for Lunch.The food I chose was Excellent! Especially enjoyed the Wild Nest Starter. Possibly the Restaurant could employ another waiter the staff are meeting themselves coming back. They also do need to check the toilets before the Restuarant opens to check that their is toilet tissue and soap in the cubicles. This really lets... More

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...

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!
