We wanted to find a place that would be both romantic and offer some different food and this place fit the bill perfectly. The wait staff was very professional and the food was great. There was a wedding party going on at a nearby place that must have blown the fuses on all the buildings around. The wait staff calmly... More

Oscar helped to make this an amazing dinner. We went on a food tour to the restaurant and had a fantastic dinner with magical wine pairings! We had a special request to cook something on the tour and got to make three different types of ceviche. They were all different and excellent. The different courses were out of this world.... More

Went here for the tasting menu and was initially disappointed to find out that it was for two people. After a discussion with the waiter, I thought he said they could do the tasting menu for one, but when the first few courses came I was worried that I had instead just ordered 5 separate dishes off the menu as...

On our first visit to Cartagena (and on our first night in the city!), we went with friends to Salou Restaurant for dinner, which specialises in seafood and are famous for their ceviche. While they didn’t have it on the menu, they did offer the substitute of mushroom instead of the raw fish, which was absolutely delicious!! There are choices... More

We arrived at the place opened at 7:03 PM. The servers were very nice, but the service was soooo slow. We then sat and waited 15 minutes for our drinks. Then 30 minutes after we arrived, they brought the delicious plantain chips and dip. We were annoyed and hungry. There are not a ton of options on the menu, but... More

In Centro but a little removed from the very busy, touristic area, a beautiful restaurant with excellent food, great decor and very pleasant staff. The ceviche Classico is delicious and so are the main courses. Definitely would return for more!

I've had an early dinner here while staying in Cartagena. I found it on Tripadvisor and popped in on a weekday around 7 o'clock. As I was the first customer of the day and I was the only one in for most of my visit I decided that I'll just have a beer and a main course. The menu was... More
