Each Sunday afternoon, Catedral offers a buffet. They offer a large variety of dishes. The food is tasty, and well presented. The friendly staff, attentively clears the used dishes as you go and get the next portion. The price is reasonable.

No dress code that we noticed. It's an upscale resto though, so people weren't in shorts.
Do you still have a buffet brunch (I think on Sunday)?
