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.

So many things I could say about this place. I visited Cartagena last year and dined at Salou and was blown away. It was by far one of the best culinary experiences I've had in my life. So of course when I returned to Cartagena I told my friend we had to go here. When I mentioned to my friend... More

The sensation of tastes served in this restaurant is more than perfect. Especially the coco langoustines and the grilled salmon exceeded our expectations by far. Service is friendly and fast and cocktails are good. The only thing is that the English menu is disorganized and in some categories has less and in some more options than the Spanish one?! Take...

Omg... go there and get this now! It's big enough to have as an entree, the flavors are amazing, and the the price (at $33.000COP) is reasonable. So delicious! The rice pudding dessert was also excellent although the bottle of water at the cost of a beer was highly overpriced.

They open at 7PM buy let us in 5 minutes before that. We watched the place fill up within an hour but the tables are spread out so you have personal space The food and wine were excellent, service precisely attentive but not fawning. The cost of the meal for three including the gratuity, wine and water was under $200.... More
