Looks like a cool place but in fact it can get pretty dangerous if you are not careful enough. The owner runs his cocaine business at this place and his boys often attract young tourists from the street to have a drink there. They find you a seat in the back room with AC and bring you drugs and won't... More

We entered the restaurant by chance, it was not that full but our main course took an hour to come. The ceviche was OK but nothing special. I didnt like the sauce of Lomo de cerdo en finas hierbas. My husband had filete a la marinera and it was OK. The decor is colouful and certainly unique! We were in... More

Right beside the expensive tourist Plaza, took a beer here for half the price, liked the nice staff and the georgious setting, so went back in the evening for a meal. Ordered a File Mignon, the largest one I have ever had, so tender I hardly needed chewing, and for less than ten dollars. Gotta get back to Cartagena again,... More

We stopped by La Mantilla while exploring the old city. We were looking to try local fried fish and saw quite a few people sitting inside. Atmosphere was nice, although people street will come and hassle you (we had a couple kids perform a Dr. Dre rap while we were eating). Food was fairly priced and I highly recommend you... More

The atmosphere isn't exactly great, but it is centrally located, the food is pretty good, and the prices are on average for the center of town. Try the cazuela de mariscos, for instance.

I loved the bright fun style of this place. The staff was friendly and inviting. I only wish it were closer to my home and I'd hang out there a lot more often!

Very chill place for dinner. Very quiet the night we went. Food was average. Better places out there. Good value though.

Don't limit yourselves to dining only at Plaza Santo Domingo...just around the corner is a great place, LA MANTILLA, on the Calle de la Mantilla, where the prices are quite lower and the food is great. I and friends went there and had a nice steak and beer for half the price at the plaza. It is a bit out... More
