I come here for the sandwiches and salads, which are quite good. The staff is attentive and the service is quite good. No English that I'm aware of FYI.

Went with family who love this place. Nostalgia seems to be the best selling point of the food. Had the shrimp cocktail that was more sauce than shrimp and a meat empanada that was more like a Jamaican patty.

I've lived in Cartagena for the past 3 years, but even before I moved here from Sao Paulo - where I've had some fantastic food - I have never had such creative and tasty salads. They also serve arab food which is solid, and their deserts are good too. If you like iced tea, here they make them naturally! You... More

La Dulceria offers great salads and sandwiches. I love their fresh fruit juices, my favorite: jugo de mango viche...! And the desserts are to die for...!

We went to la Dulceria just for desert. We had the Orange cake and it was really good. I wish I had a bigger appetite because the salads looked AMAZING! I wish I had a larger appetite to try the other food because it looked really delicious.

We had a large serving of hummus, which looked oddly like one of those grocery containers flipped upside down, and then a seafood salad, which was cooked seafood, still warm, on a bed of lettuce. The two were refreshingly healthy in vibe, but not so well executed. And kind of pricey for what it was.

The salads at La Dulceria are filled with an array of fresh, delicious ingredients, and they are massive. The "small" salad is actually normal-sized and will definitely fill you up. It also comes in an edible crispy shell that is a delicious pairing with the salad. In addition to salads, try the juices! They have dozens of juices to try... More

There are many fast-food restaurants along the strip , and this is one of the few delightful family-style treats, with an extensive menu of fresh fruit juices, vegetables, salads, middle-eastern as well as carribean treats. One of the few places in Bocagrande that is focused on fresh and raw rather than fried foods.
