“Best food I've had so far....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

We ate here for dinner, they have a lovely cute little balcony to sit on overlooking the square. We had strawberry and passion fruit milkshakes to drink, a lovely prawn starter with their secret dressing and avocado salsa, it was just lovely. For our mains we had the Thai chicken curry, the paste is clearly home made and was very good and pretty spicy, it was so fresh really delicious. The Caribbean prawn rice was lovely and very very tasty, but I think for me I would have preferred an avocado salad or something similar to accompany my rice rather than chips on the side of rice. The waiter was very nice and polite, the owners also speak English which is a bonus for some! Best meal I have had since arriving in cartagena, I will eat here again. Great flavours and nice relaxing atmosphere.

“Nice view and drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We enjoyed mojitos and coconut lemonade on the balcony with a wonderful view of the plaza and Sofitel. The owners were kind and welcoming. A little expensive but very enjoyable for an afternoon drink!
