No question, this was the most memorable dining experience of my trip to Cartagena. Amazing food and great service. A real, authentic restaurant in the old city.

One of the best, if not the best, meals I had in Cartagena. The EL Milagro deal is awesome. You get to choose an appetizer, entree, and dessert and have an open bar for 2hrs. We had a group of 12 and the service was excellent.

It didn't take long to realize our dining experience at El Satismo would be stellar. From the minute I entered the place, it was easy to see how much thought was put into the layout and decor. Past the ambience, the restaurant did not disappoint. The food was fresh and the service was quick to deliver on our requests. I... More

During my stay in Colombia this was hands down the best meal during my stay in Cartegena. Everything I had was great (both meat and seafood dishes) and the wine selection was also exceptional. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating for our big group (there were ten of us). Definitely would recommend to anyone visiting!

Strong points: - the excellent service - the food - the "miracle" offer: for 95'000 pesos you get entry, main course and dessert and open bar for 2 hours!! Watch out: make sure you haven't eaten too much before

They don't open on Sundays. We were extremely disappointed because we wanted to eat there due to nice comments we got from some friends.

The menu has many good options. They have a special menu called "El Milagro" (The Miracle), which for a fixed price you can choose starters, main course and desert and FREE bar for 2 hours! It was so good, that we decided to repeat it, instead of trying another restaurant! Everything we tried was very good!

El Santisimo was a great choice for our luncheon of 16. The entrees were delicious- especially the sea bass. The appetizers were terrific. The names of all choices were blessedly assigned. Each dessert was named for one of the 7 deadly sins plus "the novice sighing" - my favorite. The table was not in the formation we had asked for... More

Loved the food and the style. We had dinner for two, two starters and two mains. Washed down with mojitos. We wanted dessert but were stuffed full of great food. Great service and fab food. I would recommend the octopus carpaccio for a starter. Save your appetite for this place and eat like a king.
