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.

Stopped in. Had the ceviche peruana. Pieces of fish were quite large. The sauce was overly acidic. This may be Columbian style, not my preferred style. The mushroom appetizer was over saluted. The mixed brochette plate was good, but very large, easily enough for two. I suggest you dine elsewhere.

This little restaurant is a gem in so many ways. The food is excellent, the ambiance charming and the owner makes you feel like you are dining a her home. I highly recommend the grilled calamari as an appetizer and the fish stew as the main course. It is a little pricey for Cartagena but well worth it.

We are here for dinner and it was lovely. We had lovely fresh squid in garlic for starters and chicken and seafood pasta for mains. Lovely fresh cooking, nice atmosphere and polite service.
