Just lovely.........

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor having not been able to find a particularly good place to eat in Cartagena on a previous visit. We were not disappointed the food and service was all excellent - an oasis to visit to avoid the searing heat of the midday sunshine.

We have visited Cartagena on a number of occasions over the years and have often eaten at a centrally located tapas restaurant (La Tartana), where we have enjoyed a number of pleasant evenings, especially during festival times when you can sit outside and soak up the atmosphere. On this visit we were seeing some of the City's museums and thought... More

Have been meaning to try this restaurant for a while after recommendations from friends, so on a hot August lunch time eventually made it. We had a selection of starters with salad, beautifully served by a lovely waiter. Excellent bottle of house wine too. Goats cheese with sweet tomato, and squid and prawns in spicy oil. Also had to try... More

Good place for chillin' out. The restaurant/bar is right next to the Roman Theatre museum. Great atmosphere, food and price.

The first impression of this restaurant was let's try it out. Because we weren't to use about how the menu would be we decided o go elsewhere. After a day or two we returned to order our favorite Caribbean drink Pina colada. Since we don't drink alcohol we asked if they could make it without which they replied they would.... More

Dear Lv G, No, I would not believe you had to pay 8€ for a cocktail at La Catedral, with or without alcohol, as the cost for any alcoholic cocktail is 6,5€, and without it as a price of 5€. But I will give you a little advise, which always works perfectly: talk. In every situation of your live, talk.... More

Every year me and my family spend a month in Spain, and every year my two young girls want to come here and see Pablo! We went twice for lunch once in July and once in August as we love Cartagena. Food was fantastic both times, my steak was great. The only unfortunate thing was on both lunch occasions Pablo... More

It was my first visit and we were shown round what is an interesting and beautiful building. We hadn't booked but they squeezed us in and then moved us when a proper table became available. The good was fabulous and service friendly and attentive. I look forward to returning soon!

Food is good as usual but the waitress was miserable and aggressive. There were 5 of us but could not eat together because one of us had to wait both for starters and main. Will not go back in August as you can tell kitchen is not coping well. The manager/ owner was very friendly and. Apologetic . But will... More

I had got good references about this restaurant in the past, but I was quite dissapointed about the quality, the innovation and the service. The price they charge doesn't worth the food you get. Very fancy place, nice decoration, perfect location..., maybe better for a long drink

We came here on the back of already posted reviews and were not disappointed. While the service could have been a bit better, the food was very good. Vegetarians are not really catered for on the menu, but they were happy to adapt. The restaurant was very stylish and the prices offered good value for money. We'd definitely recommend
