Had a great meal with family and friends in this historic building in a lovely part of Spain. Steps from an ancient Roman theatre, you walk inside this restaurant and you're surrounded by ancient stone and architecture from an original Roman building. Coming from Canada, the opportunity to visit city's and towns that are thousand years old is unique for... More

We found this place thanks to the reviews from Trip Advisor. As we had two 2 year olds with us we went for a lunch, and can honestly say it was the best meal of our holiday. They also were really child friendly, many of the lunch time diners had children with them. If you're in the area you must... More

We always try to have dinner at this restaurant when in Cartagena; great ambience, very interesting decor with glass tiles showing the Roman ruins underneath. Food is excellent too.

We booked this restaurant two weeks in advance from home because it sounded so promising from the other TA reviews. But, apart from the amazing location and the incorporation of theRoman ruins into the decor, it was rather a let down. The food is very ordinary and too expensive for its quality. And the service is downright sullen. Not what... More

This was one of the best restaurant experiences we had in our two weeks in the area. The restaurant decor is stunning as it is an excavated Roman site visible through glass floors. Ask to see the 11m well

We visited the restaurant first time yesterday, and it met all our expectations. The food was very nicely arranged and food was very tender. I had the Tuna Tartar, and it was really fresh and tasty. Tenderloin and grilled Tuna my friends had was also very delusion according to my friends. The final satisfaction was when the owner guided us... More

Managed to get a table at 9 without booking, but the place was full when we left so do book. We found the service to be excellent, prompt, friendly and helpful.
