Really beautifully designed restaurant that bordered on trendy and classic. The food and cocktails were wonderful. I suggest making a reservation ahead of time because we walked into a basically empty restaurant shortly after it opened and they made us wait 10 minutes. That was a little annoying, but despite that shortcoming, the restaurant left a good taste in our... More

The food was quite good, but didn't live up to the hype. We went for lunch and the energy was very low. I'd give it another try at night.

This is a nice spot with great air conditioning, decent food and a relaxed atmosphere. Service is a bit slow until it is time for the food and then it speeds up remarkably.

We made a reservation and arrived on time. Half the restaurant was empty but they kept us waiting without any explanation. The staff is very friendly but there is no supervision. The food is excellent and the price is reasonable.

I had a dinner with a large group of friends at Don Juan. Juan and his staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating, and everyone raved about the food! The atmosphere was great, too!

From start to finish, our dinner was amazing. Try the ceviche, puff pastry and bruschetta to start! Great crowd as well.

The ambience was gorgeous - as all other buildings in Cartagena, it was beautiful inside. The food was good, but not that good for the prices. We enjoyed it, regardless.

Maybe I had the wrong idea about Colombia when I arrived, though I never expected to eat THIS good while in Cartagena. The city has excellent old world charm and great street food, though Don Juan blew me out of the water with their South American/Carribean inspired menu and wine list that would rival restaurants in Paris or Milan.
