The service was really slow, only one guy was looking after the whole place so we even had to go to the kitchen to ask for more lime and chili. My husband and I ordered a shrimp cocktail and a Peruvian entree. Cocktail was kind of bland so I had to add some chili, the fish ceviche had an overpowering... More

Well, we're not really stalking Anthony Bourdain but it seems like we've hit some of his profiled place in several countries... :) This place is a treasure, not all that many tables and seemingly often busy but the service is more than pleasant. Most importantly, the Ceviche there is truly the very best I've ever had and I have been... More

Great atmosphere and excellent food! The decoration is pleasant and makes you feel confortable, but we missed having a nice outdoor terrace.

My sister and I had dinner here and it definitely lived up to the hype. Fast and friendly service. I had the Paella and my sister had the fish of the day - both were perfect.

Located closer to the sea front than many other attractions, this fresh happy street side cafe most definitely produces the best ceviche we have ever tasted... Octopus mega size is recommended !!! A definite for anyone visiting Cartagena

We ate 3 ceviche dishes here. Everything was good. The atmosphere is OK and it is not a large restaurant. This was the most expensive meal we got while in Cartagena, not expensive by US standards. But it was $80 for 3 people.

My family and I came to La Cevicheria for lunch on our first day in Cartagena and we were not disappointed. We shared two kinds of ceviche and two hot rice dishes, and everything was delicious. Service was great. Kind of pricy but that is to be expected in Cartagena.

How rare is that? The ceviche here is the best I've ever had. We had the pulpo as well as a calamari dish. YUM.

I came here twice, and tried a total of 4 different dishes. I thought one was truly outstanding, and would recommend that to anyone. In order of enjoyment: 1. Fish Cerviche - get it, it's great. 2. Fish & Shrimp Cerviche -If you really like shrimp, this good. I just enjoyed the fish more than the shrimp, and thus recommended... More
