Gourmet Food!

I loved this place, great, delicious food, great service. They had a plan called "Indulgencias" and for $35.00 dollars, we had 2 drinks, appetizer, an entrée and dessert. Everything was delicious!

We quite enjoyed our dinner at El Santisimo. The food was yummy and interesting takes on Colombian cuisine. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The set menu and all you can drink deal was great!

2nd time around and it was as good as the first time. This is my favorite restaurant in Cartagena. We didn't have reservation but it was kind of late so we had no problem.

We had our son's rehearsal dinner at this restaurant, and it was fabulous. The atmosphere is very nice. The staff was very accommodating -- we had an 8 year old child with us, and they were so helpful in making sure he had a meal that he would enjoy. The ceviche is excellent. Some of us had the rabbit for... More

There were at least 40 empty tables, it was a Tuesday night at around 7:15 pm, and people in Colombia eat late, so we decided to request a table, and the woman at the reception asked us... More

This is a typical Colombian food feast. Servings are huge. Food is fresh and tasty. Inexpensive. If you want to savor the fish, fruit, meats, etc. of Colombia, this is the place. It is a no frills place but the food is outstanding. The restaurant stops serving at 3:00 pm. Bring your appetite A special dish that we tried was... More
