OK is the most I can say about this place, I suppose that makes it a decent meal but they seem to aspire for more..? The owner walked around all night checking up on things without a single smile, not a great contribution to the atmosphere. Portions and prices adequate and comparable to other restaurants. Food was well cooked. Nice... More

Excellent food. Chese carimañolas with suero. The catch of the day, a great red snapper with a roasted tomato and pepper sauce accompanied with green plantain patacones. A delicious coconut rice what milk

The service was amazing: the staff were well versed in the local ingredients and tradition that informed the food, as well as the restaurant's overall focus on sustainability. The menu is centrally seafood and fish based (although there are some meat options), inspired by local flavours. Everything is made in house. The prices were reasonable given the high quality of...

After visiting the Carmen in Medellin, we had a large group dinner here in Cartagena that lived up to the amazing meal at the original restaurant. The menu here has some of the same dishes but is far from identical. The octopus, banh mi, and cheese plate were all fantastic, and the service was great throughout.

This was my second visit to 818 , came last year and the food was great, but now it seems that the food had a lack of something, I mean it was not bad at all but last time was better, way much better. , service is still great. keep it up.

For the main course we have ordered “Fish of the day” and was incredible! I do not recommend ordering meat there, is was not bad, but any sea... More

This was one of the best meals we had in Cartagena. Modern Coastal Colombian cuisine was a great change of pace compared to the other restaurants in town, and everything we had was superb - as good as anything you'd find in a haute restaurant in a large city in North America or Europe. It was a bit off the... More

Small and well decorated house, perfect for couples. Food was amazing (recommend octopus carpaccio) as well as service and atmosphere. Important to make reservations well in advance.

It didn´t help that the restaurant was completely empty on a saturday night but the food was very average for the price. Nice decor, friendly enough but not really worth it.
