This is a must place to have lunch in Cartagena

A small, cozy wonderful restaurant. Excellent service, attentive staff and excellent meals. Everything they serve is fresh. I visited this place twice and in both occasions I was extremely pleased with the meals I was served.

Just plain, just average, just simple ... I am afraid to say this restaurant is nothing but hype. Not worth it for the price.

Recommended by San Pedro Hotel & Spa , this place was just fantastic, small, but the food was delicious , the portion we ordered was the right size, for the right price. Our server was Luz Dary and she did a fantastic job. We will eat here again.

This little restaurant exceeded our expectations! We were traveling with 3 children aged 6 and under, and we selected this restaurant at the recommendation of our cab driver and after checking the reviews. The restaurant was clean and charming. The pasta bolognese was delicious and the portion very generous. We also had the Carne Esmechada and the salad with avocado.... More

This restaurant was amazing. We both started with the limonada de coco which was refreshing and delicious. My husband ordered the garlic shrimp with fries. I ordered the chicken with the garlic sauce (ajillo) and a side of rice. Both dishes were amazing. The restaurant is small (only 6 tables or so) and a bit pricey, but worth every penny.... More

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
