Menu choice to our liking main difficulty was choosing! Food very well presented nice flavours and well cooked. We shared a starter of cooked meats and cheese and... More

Hi Linda, We know we are kind of hidden away from the crowd, right between the Roman Theatre and the Old cathedral, so thank you very much for taking the time to find us. We are changing the menu, so in the near future you will have another excuse to come back and test your tastes. All the best until... More

An excellent 3 course meal with an extremely friendly and helpful waiter and a manager who was keen to ensure we had everything we needed - I couldn't fault the food or the experience. It is not a cheap restaurant but you get what you pay for. I look forward to returning.

The place deserves its high reviews. We had a lovely lunch. The Tuna and parmentier sauce was excellent. The whole building is built and decorated from the various buildings that have stood on or near the site from the Roman ampitheatre to the 19th Century. Artfully, imaginatively and sympathetically done. The staff are happy to give you a short tour.... More

Normally the kids complain and moan when asked to eat from the adult menu. Not here. All plates were wiped. Pork galore and sashimi too. Excellent food in beautiful surroundings. The kids also got the royal tour. Top marks for this restaurant, they make excellent look easy.

As it was the number 1 rated we booked a table (as you would expect) by email. We received a quick response and a table in the salon upstairs. There were 5 of us and... More

Very famous but not so impressive for me. Difficult to park and food itself was average grade.

A little bit crowded and not easy to get a table without reservation (we could not get food in the bar while waiting). We had quite high expectations which were not completely acquired. The service was just fine and they had a good menu, although some explanations from the waiter were required to fully understand and there is a lack... More

We went for lunch after looking around the Roman Theatre. We had the steak and cod. Both melted when you ate them. Our children were very impressed. We had creme caramel, tiramisu and ice cream for puddings- all were scrummy. The staff are lovely. The place holds so much history and we were shown around to see it. Well worth... More

Visited La Catedral today for lunch. We arrived a little too early and asked politely if we wouldn't mind returning in half an hour. On our return we were made to feel extremely welcome and seated in a beautifully decorated dining area. The staff were extremely busy but made time for my poor Spanish and our two youngsters. The food... More
