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

The owner was the head chef and took great pride in his dishes .I returned recently to find the kitchen staff had grown but the owner is still the head chef and again night after night dined on amazingly...

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

We were in Cartagena's old town in the afternoon of New Year's Eve...hot and thirsty, and just starting to realise that many restaurants had shut down to prepare for the evening festival. We came upon this trattoria which welcomed all seven of us; they said that only the fish dishes would be available, which was fine with us. Several plates... More

Returned trip to Donde Wippy after a couple years. It was as good last time. I had the Sea Bass Acapulco style. It was excellent! I washed it down with some of the home made Sangria, which was also excellent. It is a small place and there is something about it that I really like as far as ambiance. Maybe... More
