By the side of the Roman Amphitheatre, this lovely old building has been given an unusual contemporary twist. It has areas of glass floors where you can view the old wells and artifacts. This is definitely worth a visit.

Had high expectations due to all the good reviews. I can only assume we caught them on a bad day. There was one poor waiter running around looking after a full restaurant but not quite managing. Waited quite a while for our order to be taken only then to be told both my stater and main course were not available.... More

We met friends for lunch, coming from afar, and were not disappointed. The restaurant is a little out of the way but next to the Roman theater - one of the main city sites - and sits atop a part of it, giving guests guided tours after the meal. It is also the centerpoint of a local cultural association. The... More

We visited during a rainy day and they received us warmly. The menu was diverse. We shared a giant salad and afterwards I had the tuna, which was awesome in taste and very nicely served. The waiters were very kind. The price is not the cheapest in town but it's not so expensive either. The salad was around 10 eur... More

Been here 4 times now and always take our visitors to this restaurant when in Cartagena. It is a MUST, I promise you will not be disappointed by the service, the food, the wine, the staff and the location. I would compare this restaurant with some of the nicest restaurants in London and you certainly wont be paying London prices.

Our friend recommended this gem of a restaurant to us for a special birthday lunch and it did not disappoint! Beautiful food, an incredible setting - our room had once served as a water tank for the nearby roman amphitheatre - and attentive staff. The owner's pride in his restaurant and the workmanship throughout shone through. A fantastic afternoon x

Based on a tip from the hotel we visited this restaurant in november 2016. A really nice meal! Both the service and the food was very good. No discussion when we sent the first wine bootle back.

Dear Mr. Vidar, There could be no discussion if somebody is not 100% happy with the quality of the food or drinks, replacement should be done at once. Thank you very much for your visit and your comment, and please convey my thanks to the hotel staff as well, Best regards, Pablo More

Came here with high expectations as we read it was no 2 restaurant in Cartagena. However we were disappointed as we have eaten better elsewhere. The bacon salad starter had lots of fatty pieces which were not pleasant. The main courses came on cold plates ( I know this happens a lot in Spain but in a restaurant of this... More

Dear Sheila, Thanks to your review we have changed the way the beacon comes at this salad, and from now on instead of in cubes will use it in strips to ensure is more crispy, as most of the foreign customers expect it this way. And all of our mains will come on hot plates, as we do for the... More
