Yes please!

A fantastic menu, well cooked and beautifully presented. The all inclusive menu includes your drinks which makes it incredibly easy for large tables to manage the bill. Service may not be the fastest, but nothing in Cartagena moves terribly quickly so order a drink and relax

Love the food at this place! For about $100,000 COP you get a great package deal: 2 hours of unlimited cocktails, appetizer, main dish and dessert. 😍

The salads seemed like they where done early in the morning and the lettuce was soft. Not nice food and very expensive for... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner having been seduced by some favourable reviews and recommendations since arriving in Cartagena. On arriving we were told that they had an event on and would need to reserve a table which meant we'd have to return in 40 mins. All fine, we had just turned up and so accepted this in good faith....

A stylish and pleasant place to dine. Fresh, modern interior, good food and good service. We took an option in which we could have a 3 course meal and all the alcohol we could drink for 100,000 pesos each + tax + service. Well worth it!! You won't be disappointed.

If you want to enjoy a very delicious meal this is the place! Food is delicious and the price is adequate. Staff is really friendly and always pay attention to your needs. The environment is good and relaxed. I LOVE this restaurant. For me is the best restaurant in Cartagena.

Ate lunch at this delightful restaurant, along with 10 other people, and everyone was raving about their meals and how close to perfection they were. My steak was prepared to a perfect medium. Only the medium wasn't just in the center of the large piece of beef, but medium on the outside as well. Still not sure how they did... More

Apparently, Peruvian good has taken over the Cartagena's restaurants. Èl Santisimo, although not advertised as Peruvian, it has a lot of influence. Food was well prepared, nicely shown, only critic is that they abuse cilantro in all dishes. Deserts were delicious and service very good.
