Great food and service

We had great food, including grilled squid, seafood stew, and a variety of pasta dishes. The service was the best we've had in Colombia so far.

My two friends and I all had different kidns of fish and all the dishes were simply delicious. It's not the most affordable place in town (but not too expensive) but portions were quite large.

Small and Great food at a good price. Dubis, the owner, is a wonderful host!!!!! Get there early as seating is limited and the restaurant fills up fast.

We had a nice dinner here. The food was good, although nothing spectacular. I had the sea bass, which was a little too oily, but otherwise good. My friend had a vegetable soup, which was basic but well-prepared.

Not the worst food I've ever had, but no idea why this place is rated so high. Very bland - one of those places where the service is TOO fast because the dinner you order at 10 pm was pre-cooked at lunchtime. Everything in my cazuela was over-cooked and rubbery, and the sauce had no flavor. Also one of those... More

Just an amazing little spot in Cartagena. Food was uber fresh and the staff was extremely friendly. We recommend the fried calamari, the seafood stew and, of course, the juices. We tried a lemonade with coconut that was pretty amazing. We liked it so much that we ordered another kind - lemonade with lemongrass - that was equally amazing. Everyone... More

I was a bit disappointed with my salmon dish which I thought was a bit dry -- though portion was very large. Other diners seemed very pleased so maybe it was just my dish. Very nice atmosphere.

Excellent choice near Santo Domingo Plaza. Very nice staff. Food excellent. I had pork chops (three) in orange sauce, mashed potatoes with cheese and pimento, mixed (cooked) vegetables, flan, a mojito and coffee for around $30.
