Dine on top of Roman ruins or over a Roman well while sampling an eclectic mix of Japanese and Spanish dishes in this cozy restaurant that shares its facade with the Roman theater. The ancient and new decor blend well over the three floors (even the bathroom is worth a visit), and waiters are happy to give guided tours. Highlights on the concise menu include artichoke and foie gras trumpets, tenderloin with old mustard, and cod with onions, pine nuts, and honey. Locals flock to La Catedral so go early or reserve a table. If you want lunch before 1 pm, call the restaurant and ask them to open early for you.
