Returned to La Catedral after a couple of years break. Lovely welcoming staff. New items on the menu. The Mushroom nest starter was as good looking as was the eating. The tuna carpaccio was also delicious. We both followed with the Cod. Accompanied with onion and seated on honeyed potatoes, did not sound too good, however it was stunning. Tiramasu... More

This place has it all - stunning interior packed with character, great friendly service, and the best food I've eaten so far in Spain. Menu is simple and interesting, ingredients are fresh and the steak and fish dishes spot on. Shocked by how small the bill was for two people - highly recommend this place.

Little bit bizarre, I nipped inside the restaurant to request a table to be told they were full. My friend then nipped in afterwards to ask and strangely a different waiter said yes they had tables and took us to the seating area downstairs. A couple of the waiters were very patient, funny and helpful. They can advise of gluten... More

A stone's throw from the Roman Theatre, this place is a real find. All four of us enjoyed a stunning lunch. Highly recommended.

16 friends most of whom live in Spain booked the private room on recommendation. Based on it's reputation & reviews this was a bit of a disappointment and I cannot help feeling that visitors who have rated this restaurant so highly have been carried away by the quirky but effective architectural elements especially with the glass floors. Having said that,... More

Took 4 friends for their first experience of this fantastic restaurant. They loved it. We were looked after by Pablo and as usual had a brilliant meal. Can't wait until my next visit.
