We liked everything but it is quite expensive. The decor is beautiful with hanging pineapple lights and large multicoloured pictures. The food is clever and interesting.

Our boys liked spring rolls while wife liked Quinta shrimp salad. I thought this salad was overpowered by dressing. Sea bass, shrimp risotto, and shrimp with coconut rice all well-prepared. Son liked ribeye though prepared more like flatiron steak. Tees leches and apple tart both nicely done but did not our socks off. Service relaxed as in most of Columbia-... More

Really incredible meal. Food was soooo good. Fast service. Drinks are a little pricey but the food is reasonable priced. Lobster tail! So much variety to choose from and everyone loved their dishes. 7:30pm or 9:30pm seating. Do 7:30pm so you don't have to wait outside.

Highly recommend the shrimp dish. It was very tasty in a citrus cream sauce. We also enjoyed a great bottle of red wine (the cheaper carmene one on the menu) Service was good and prices are fair. The food was some of the best we had in Cartagena.

Food was delicious, fresh, and well presented. Unfortunately, the service was terrible. Waiters were plain nasty, rushing us to order from the beginning, not a smile, not a helpful recommendation. Not worth returning.

I have been in Cartagena for 21 months and I can say without a doubt that Don Juan gets my vote for best, most consistent meal and service in Cartagena. Great food from beginning to end. I highly recommend the Ox tail!!
