One of the best value in the city center of Cartagena, where it can be difficult to find a restaurant that's not a tourist trap. We had a three-course dinner in Donde Wippy for less than 20 dollars, the service and food was excellent. I recommend to try their ceviche. The Italian owner is very friendly.

My boyfriend and I walked by the place and thought nothing of it. After rudely unallowed to enter another restaurant because of our outfit, we went to Wippy. We were extremely well attended to by our waitress Carla. We had peruvian ceviche as a started, wasn't amazing, but good. We then ordered our main dishes, I ordered a Linguini with... More

We had the Plat De Jour. We had tomato bruschetta and fish soup for entree, both very tasty. For mains fettuccine al pesto, and cerviche. The mixed salad had an olive oil dressing to die for, and the sweet were a type of pastry, with slices of apple, and covered with a delightful light lemon custard. Absolutely delightful. Very good...

I was reluctant to try the seafood pasta, for I regularly prefer putanesca, carbonara, amatriciana or the basic aglio, olio and pepperoncino. Nevertheless, as Patricio (owner and chef) insisted that the ingredients were really fresh and that I would not be disappointed, I decided to follow a hunch and went ahead. YES SIR! it was outstanding. I will gladly repeat... More

We had lunch at Wippy today, first time there, waiter was kind but really untrained, unable to describe the dishes. Food was fairly poor, chef abuses of crema de leche, whether it is a gratinated crab or a grouper with seafood garnishing, it all tastes too creamy. Considering the many options in Cartagena, I would certainly not want to go... More

We had a delightful dinner at Wippy's during our recent visit to Cartagena. The highlight of the evening was a cerviche to die for. Fresh, succulent ingredients, excellent fish, and all marinated in an extremely tasty liquid. Definitely the best ceviche we tasted in Cartagena (and we tasted quite a few). We had the good fortune to spend a few... More

We were looking for a seafood restaurant, but stumbled upon the reviews for this place on TripAdvisor. We normally like to stick to local food on vacations, but decided to try this anyways since it was local ingredients Italian style (minus the ceviche which was also good). Everything ended up being very delicious and the service was excellent - we... More

I hate to give a recommendation because then it might be hard to get a table. Delicious and tasty with larger than average portions. I would still sing it's praises even with average size meals. I recently had the salmon and found it cooked to perfection. Most places over cook their fish. I'll be back!

The ceviche was excellent (perfect balance of lime and salt) and the main dish (corvina, a typical white fish) was cooked as requested. We were lucky to have the chef's attention and he was incredibly friendly and helpful when choosing the wine that accompanied our meal. Although the service and the quality of the food is 'formal dining' standard, the... More
