We went to dinner last night at Salou after recommendations on Trip Advisor. We should have realized that something was different as there were only seven people in the restaurant the whole time we were there. We started with the Japanese mayo prawns and the octopus with grits. The prawns were fresh and firm but drowned in a tabasco-mayonnaise with... More

We got there at 6.45, they were nice and offered to stay inside but we came back at 7.15 and we were nicely greeted. We choose the 4 services + 1 dessert at approx 70$ US for 2. Our best decision. The service is great, they explain every dishes, the duo of ceviche was outstanding . They are very attentive... More

We ended up at this place after trying to make various last minute reservations on other restaurants recommended on trip advisor. We were definitely lucky. We tried the Menu de Degustación and were not disappointed. The ceviches were different, innovative and fresh and they were so delicious. As a matter of fact everything was. My husband wanted to go back... More

You are cordially greeted at the door upon entering, and the reservation is honored perfectly. My wife and I ordered ceviche to share, and it was the best ceviche to this point in Cartagena. We then ordered the grilled octopus served with grits that was both different and delicious. The attentive owner or manager came over, and in perfect English... More

Ate here on Christmas eve night, great selection of fusion food. We were recommended to try the tour which is essentially the chefs choice of either 2 or 4 courses. The food is explained and very tasty, it got quite busy and service did slow down a bit. However worth a try if you fancy something different.

Visited this place for a late lunch and we tried ceviche and the octopus dish. They are mouth watering and the well presented dishes also make it a good experience overall. Very good service and highly appreciate the fact that when we asked for a second round of the complimentary plantains they didn't charge for it. Thanks Salou.

Nice and charm restaurant in the beautiful Cartagena's old city. Great food and service. We loved the fried sweet plantains and the apetizer "Trio de ceviches" totally recomended.

I'm not a big seafood type of guy, so take this with a grain of salt. But the service was prompt and attentive. And I though it was worth a 4 rating based on atmosphere.

We had the tour for two and everything was delicious. Two kinds of ceviche, very tasty and two small entrée tastes. The stuffed fried shrimp was our least favorite, just Ok. Everything else was fantastic. Good wine selection as well.
