Service too slow

Great value if you get the 2hours open bar plus appetizer + entree + dessert for 100mil pesos (around 40usd) but service was super slow!! Took forever to get orders, to get food, to get drink rifilled and by the time we wanted the check we almost had to grab somebody that was already making tables... read more

Ordering al a carte is expensive but they my offer a price fixe for 100,000 pesos which is an outstanding value. Unlimited drinks for 2 hours included. Although this may sound gimmicky, this is a high end restaurant with excellent cuisine, service and value

First time in Cartagena, traveling alone...a friend suggested I dine here as she had a fabulous meal when she visited a few months back. At first I hesitated since I was dining alone and it's such a beautiful restaurant. Yet I wanted to splurge on a good Colombian meal. And I am so happy I went. The menu had a... More

When you receive a restaurant recommendation from the best jeweler in Cartagena (Lucy), take it; you won't be disappointed! El Santisimo has great atmosphere, the best ceviche in Cartagena & the "hot" locals to add spice to the traveler's interest in local dining! The service is impeccable! Recommend getting out of the sun for lunch, you won't be in a... More

Has a great dinner in this wonderful place, they gave us a good and fresh drink to start "wine con corozo", then I highly recommend to select the three food offer they have you can drink whatever you want! From beer, cafe or black label!! Enjoy this place!!

The food tooka a complete hour to arrive and was not up to any of our expectations. The menu didnt specify the side orders available nor the drinks offered. It was a tedious visit overall.

They had a special the night we went that was called "Milagros". It meant if we ordered a starter, an entreé, and a dessert, our drinks were free. We sampled pretty much everything, 9 different plates, all of it delicious. The waiter was awesome and we left stuffed and it was actually inexpensive. It was a block from our hotel... More
