What a shame but it is no more. I think it closed down a few years ago. It was kind of a cool spot and the service was ok but the food not so much

As said was quite quiet which made us sceptical despite the reviews however the sheer effort that went into the decoration made us think twice and we stayed. We had a few beers (best price in the city), ceviche - which we asked and was recommended and then ropa vieja. All very tasty and well presented. The staff were very... More

I've read several reviews of people saying the food wasn't that good and am wondering if they ate at the same restaurant I did. The food was fantastic and by far some of the best I had on my trip to Colombia. The cocktails were also excellent. I normally like to try new things while travelling and very rarely eat... More

A local friend took me here and told me that the place has some of the best cocktails in cartagena. She recommended the Macondo Verde and we both ordered the same drink. Very delicious and refreshing, with lots of fresh mint which I love. There was a traditional dance performance that started around 9pm and invited guests to join at... More

We read great reviews on the food, even though the atmosphere sounded a little kitschy/tourist, we thought it could be fun & that street in Getsemane seems up and coming. Staff was sweet & attentive, traditional music was blaring but fun, and decor was pretty over the top touristy...food pretty dry & bland - after the explosion of flavors we've... More

The food is good, the environment is excellent, the music gives u a good approach about Colombian party, but they charge u for everything which is not bad when is something significant.
