Excellent steaks

The owner of rented apartment advised us this restaurant as a bit expensive but with great meat. Steaks is one of the food I love but it's so hard to find good one in Colombia. So we gave FM restaurant a chance. And the steaks were excellent. I only regret it was our last day in Cartagena other... read more

Great food in full-on old Cartagena ambience. Check out the plaza outside FM for hanging out later. Art and walls just stream history. Dress light; the warmth from outside does come inside.

We normally never go to the same place twice preferring to try new places but we had to go back! The food, wine and friendly service was so good! We had a creamy blue cheese fondue done in it's own little Cobb loaf, the steak was cooked to perfection and my seafood stew was mouth watering!!!

After looking up many reviews we decided to give FM a chance and glad we did. The restaurant is really beautiful, there is a lot of rooms. We sat by the fountain and it was really lovely. The servers spoke English and they had English menus which takes the chore out of ordering. I started with the green gazpacho which... More

We stopped here for some appetizers after a large lunch earlier in the day. We had some ceviche and fried prawns along with some wine. We were the only ones in the restaurant and the service was great. I ordered a glass of wine that didn't taste right and after asking they switched it out, no problem. Would definitely come... More

We had dinner there with our new in-laws. Nice atmosphere, though the air-conditioned room was not terrifically cool and smelled a bit damp. Wine was delicious. We asked for water and they brought us each individual bottles - I was hoping for purified water without being charged for the individual bottles, but maybe that was unrealistic. The gazpacho was delicious,... More

We organised a buffet brunch here as part of our wedding celebrations so this is not a review of a normal dinner / lunch. But we wanted to write a review as we thought the food and venue were perfect for what we wanted. FM provided a really extensive and creative brunch menu and the food served on the day... More

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
