“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Went recently for lunch, consisting of a mix of appertisers, and followed up a couple of days later for a relaxed, enjoyable dinner. Everything we had was great and very flavorful. Staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome, and are extremely friendy and helpful. We will probably go back during our last couple of days in this beautiful city.

“Made my top 3 favorite steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Had the baby beef steak with baked potato, cheese arepa for entree. Started our meal with house chorizo and provoletta. Absolutely the best place I'd eaten at while down in Cartagena. The location was great and the live band played amazing Colombian songs, nice lounge like feeling, not loud and obnoxious at all. The staff is exceptional. The owner came to the table to ask how our meal was, never felt rushed, never felt waiter was pushy or came to table too often (which I hate when they do).

“Great food and attention”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

A relaxed place to eat, with great attention and very good food.

The staff is more than willing to see in advance what you would like, whats the best food for your taste and recomend even places to visit, give you tips on what to do.

Its located in the new hotel zone outside the walled city.

Try the meat.

“If you like good food, this is a place you must go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

I have been here several times in the last few months. Never disappointed. Not sure if i like the steak or ribs better. The best i have eaten in Central or South America. Argentina and Uruguay have great steak but here is just as good at a better price. When i come to Cartagena i stop to eat first and last before i leave
