The restaurant is inside the old city and we had to walk over since our bus was too big to fit in the small streets. The restaurant is small and cosy and is intimate enough for dinner with friends. We were in a big group and they prepared a set menu for us with two choices of appetizers, entrees and... More

My boyfriend and I had a great experience at Don Juan. Our waitress was SO nice, and made our experience so pleasant. Our food was delicious, and I would highly recommend order the Pulpo (Octopus), and the Ceviche. Great wine selection too!

My husband and I enjoyed our meal at Don Juan. The restaurant was lovely and very popular (make sure you get reservations). The food was very good. The service was good but since they are so busy not as intimate as other locations in Cartagena.

This place is hot at the moment - you need to reserve. Friendly and attentive service. No English of course, so brush up on your Spanish. Appetizers were super. Entrees were very good but not great. Decent wine list. Very lively and hip decor. I would definitely come back here - probably just order a bunch of appetizers and sides,... More

The hottest restaurant in the old city. Our hotel made reservations and it was a good thing since it was full by opening at 7:30! So much fun and exciting fusion South American cuisine. Very informal and relaxed.

We just had an amazing dinner at Don Juan, clearly one of the best, if not the best, restaurants in Cartagena. The pulpo appetizer was well-prepared and beautifully presented. A very unusual combination of flavors. The grilled sea bass with risotto was spectacular, and the dessert of pineapple cubes is not to be missed. We also enjoyed the shrimp in... More

I am caught in a dilemma, the food in this restaurant is superb, the service is outstanding, all worthy of 5* rating, so why do they choose to ruin their credentials with the idiotic decision to only offer French Perrier if you want sparkling water and Italian Illy coffee (in a country famed the world over for it's coffee), when...
