It was a hot day in Cartegena--but probably most days are--and we had been touring the old part of the city. This restaurant/bar was just off the old town square, and provided great service, a clean bathroom, cold refreshments, and good conversation. Turns out they had already received a Trip Advisor award in 2011. We really appreciated a cool place... More

Not great. We shared a Robalo al Ajillo which was a good sized piece of fish, very tasty, but served with uninspired vegetables and very sweet coconut rice. The shrimp ceviche was in a word, disgusting, with kind of a pickled acidic taste. Service was good, prices are reasonable but not cheap. Don't be fooled, it's always full, but there... More

We have been back to this place every time we visit Cartagena. It's a small place and generally never busy which might make you think it is probably not that good, but it is. It has great food with good ingredients. The cazuela is the best I have had in a standard restaurant. I have also tried the fillet mignon... More

Disappointed. I really expected much more given its high ranking on TA and another traveller had recently recommended it to us. Had sea bass. Very unimaginative and simple. I've had better sea bass at home from the grocery store. Fish was dry. Probably it was pan fried with a bit of flour and butter. My patacones were totally dry and... More

Here you will be served as a family member! They offer us some cambas, not on standard list. They looked and tastes great! So worth asking. Everything else was also good. And all made with pride, you could taste that!

There was a hen night the night we visited, and I am hoping this affected the cooking, because the main course was shocking. We had Langoustine ceviche, and as mentioned by a previous reviewer, it came whole and not sliced. It was perfectly acceptable. The main course was a mixed sea food platter. The prawns were good but the fried... More

Me and the wife stumbled across this great little place. Split a seafood rice and salad. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. We will certainly return.
