One of the best in Cartagena

We has one of the best meals in Salou during our stay in Cartagena. Located within the walled city of Cartagena(Centro), this restaurant is a cozy place to dine. High ceiling and light-rich setting, we felt relaxed and took time for our lunch. The glasses and cutleries were high-end as well. In... read more

I wanted to like this place but unfortunately the food was too fussy to be good. Too many flavours and presentation was on the messy side. Service was excellent and the waiters try very hard to do everything they can. Unfortunately the food let it down. Octopus was very tough, which the waiter exchanged it for another dish - salmon...

Did the chef's tasting...so good. Phenomenal ceviches (cremosa and I forget the name of the green one) started us out. Had the fried thin plantain chips with a creamy mango salsa...it was so good we asked for seconds. The tuna tataki was not very memorable. The fried camaron relleno was okay but the corvina in mango chutney was delicious. Fresh... More

Salou had been recommended to us by friends and we have had it on our schedule for a few months. We are so glad we finally went! The restaurant is adorable, the black and white prints on the walls are beautiful and both food and service were fantastic! We ordered the "tiradito fusion" as well as the "pulpo", both appetizers...

We are here after a Colombian friend recommended it to us. We had the tasting menu which is 4 dishes (2 small entrees and 2 small mains) + dessert which the cook chooses. It was absolutely delicious! Fresh ceviches to start and the most delicious tempura langoustine filled with mozzarella and sea food. A must have! (You can order this... More

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
