Chronic service for lunch even when quiet. Had 7 desperate starters in the group 4 were terrible. Lobster bisque akin to a salty sea of yr sauce. Most of the prawn starters not up to much. Main courses disappointing. Verdict avoid.

From the start, we were escorted to a lovely table in forward dining room, which has an elegant feel. The music was pleasing and we could enjoy conversation easily. The bread and pate starter were delightful with the wines we'd ordered, and our meats were done to perfection. They have a menu with nice diversity here, but we were weary... More

If you are looking for a very good restaurant where you are able to talk and ajar with your friend or colleagues, this is the place. It is located in the old city. The food is very good, the service is also good and prices are fair.

Got tired of fish restaurants in Cartagena, and found this restaurant with great food. Good steaks, differently served from the way you find it other places here. As finger food you got bread with either butter or a wonderful paté (where we even got an extra!). Excellent service from a nice waiter. Prices that were ok compare to what we... More

We went twice (lunch and dinner) because we enjoyed it so much. The green gazpacho was out of this world, unlike any I've had before. The atmosphere was charming and the staff friendly and welcoming.

Very romantic spot with live piano. Complimentary fresh bread and chicken pate was excellent. Food was very good but not amazing and for that high price you can do a lot better in Cartagena. They had trouble getting out all the dishes at the same time and still hot.

This small but perfectly formed restaurant was undeservedly quiet on the evening we visited. The interior courtyard is elegant and intimate. The service was caring and efficient. Delicious bread and house pate were served whilst waiting for the generous quantities of tasty food - we had selected the Cartagena style Lomo, three large medallions of fillet accompanied by an Avocado...

We are staying at Casa la fe and just walked into this restaurant without checking TA. Glad we did. We had big lunch at the Native restaurant and wanted to go easy at dinner. We ordered three appetizers and they were excellent. The atmosphere is big spacious and romantic.

The food here is very good and the location is quite picturesque, but the very best thing about this meal was the service! Attentive without being obtrusive. The wine list is extensive as we'll. We will go back!
