“very dissapointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

I had heard good things about this restaurant however what I found when I arrived was very disappointing.
The arepa al huevo was cooked some time before and although it was warm it was far from fresh
No fresh fruit
No fresh fruit juice
No fresh cooked eggs
The butifarra was also pre cooked.
The Chicharon, although crispy and well prepared was not the first rate chicharon that was expected. it looked more like what one would find on the street in a poor neighborhood.
Breakfast for two 37k pesos.
I hope they read this.
Turn my no´s into yes´and your restaurant will be a winner

“Very Good Typical Colombian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I had the opportunity to visit Narcobollo for breakfast during my recent visit to Cartagena.

The food was fresh and very tasty. We had arepas de huevos, empanadas con queso, carimanolas con carne and bollo with sweet potato. It was all excellent. The mango juice was amazing.

Make sure you visit if you're in Cartagena.
