Ordered tomato bread with ham, garlic prawns and sausage with chips. The bread was ok, sausage and chips very greasy with soggy fries. Worst were the prawns which looked like they had been boiled and dropped into a dish of unpleasant tasty liquid. The prawns...were chewy and tasteless and we could not eat them. The waiter asked if there was a problem and we told him they were awful, no adjustment was made to our bill. On the positive side the beer was cool and refreshing. Would not eat here again but would happily have a drink as I assume the chef would not get involved with them.More

Almost nobody staff speaks English with even minimum standards. Firstly I was waiting for bad english speaking waiter and nobody cares for client. He was taking me just a second for relocating me to smaller table and handing a menu. Next 10 min I was...trying to catch him running past me. Finally when he realized I need just a coffee he turned me out scramming It’s Restaurant!.. waiting outside! I was waiting enough that night. I’ll never see foot on that place againMore

Good menu of the day, the waiter recommended the roast pork on the bone with potatoes and it was excellent. A busy locals bar with friendly service.

My girlfriend and I found this little tapas bar down a side street off the main thoroughfare in Cartagena whilst out looking for an authentic Spanish dining experience. We were not disappointed, the menu had a range of ham and cheese boards along with the...ubiquitous croquettes which were all delicious. The ambiance was fantastic too, with the cured hams hanging on display in the window to whet your appetite and the reassuring sound of native Spanish speakers all around. After a fantastic evening the bill arrived as a further pleasant surprise, in fact we liked the Nuestra so much we went back the next day for brunch. Would definitely recommend.More

Should be good....isn’t. With the hams hanging this all appears good but our plate of Ibérico Jamón was truly awful and was cut with a blunt axe by the looks of it. The guy cutting didn’t have a clue and we got bacon thick ‘jamón...ibérico’. Worst I’ve ever had in Spain and I found myself apologising to our friends who had never had Jamón Ibérico before. There was no melt in the mouth experience here. Don’t bother with this place.More

In this restaurant you can find whatever you want related with spanish traditional food. Is a good place also to have a typical lunch or tapas. The staff is totally involved in customer service. If you are in Cartagena, visit it! Don´t let it go!

Happened upon this place while walking through Cartagena. Board outside offered 3-course prix fixe lunch for 10 euros. This included salad or soup (the mixed salad was a little disappointing, but the soup was fine), choice of three main courses (including a tuna steak, which...was delicious), plus bread, drink, dessert and coffee. Service was a bit distant, but this isn't a Michelin starred place either. (And we were the only tourists in the joint, FWIW.)More

Our drinks came quickly, but after waiting for half an hour with no food in sight, on enquiring where our meat and cheese platter was it turned out that they'd forgotten about us! We weren't in a rush but would have appreciated an apology. When...we got our food it was good, but nothing special. We were there for dinner but I imagine it would be good to go for lunch.More

Basic food, staff rude. Would rather her get more guests in than treat the ones they have well. Took ages to serve us when we wanted things and then rushed us when we didn't.

Our party of 6 people hoping to have a nice light lunch at this authentic looking outdoor restaurant were so disappointed by the experience. We ordered sangria and 4 dishes including the meat and cheese platter to share. The waitress only brought us 4 glasses...and I had to ask her three times for the additional 2 glasses. After more than 30 minutes only one platter came out and still no plates on the table. Another half an hour passed and the waiter brought our meat and cheese platter to the table next door. My sister literally had to go inside the restaurant and carry our meat and cheese platter out herself! When I asked the owner/manager for the check for the third time he became extremely rude. We never got 2 of the 4 platters we ordered and aside from the horrific service the food was mediocre at best. Don’t waste your time giving people like this your business!More

Decided to have dinner here on a warm quiet Sunday evening when most restaurants are closed. Sat at a table outside for 15 minutes before anyone asked me if I wanted anything. Had to ask the waiter to wipe the table which was sticky. Drinks...are cheap (less than 3 euro for beer or wine). Decided to order Rabo de Toro (oxtail stew) which come in 2 sizes. Asked the waiter if he recommended ordering 2 or 3 dishes as they were so inexpensive (<5€)and he said no. Plate came with a single thick slice which was incredibly tasty. Used bread to soak up all the sauce but needed to order another dish as quantity (for the small portion size) was not adequate for a full meal. Ordered Carillera de cerdo (pig cheeks) which was also incredible. Service sucked as you literally have to flag down the waiter for anything you need. Took 15 minutes to get the bill then waiter virtually disappeared. Had to go in to pay and when I did zero sympathy. Go for the good stews but do not expect to be pampered.More

The food was delicious. The waiters were very friendly. The restaurant is situated right in the centre of the old town, so it is an idyllic location. I would definitely recommend this place.

This wonderful restaurant is located just off the main drag. Most of the tables are on the street and wonderful to sit and watch the foot traffic. The service was wonderful and the food wasn’t. Make sure you buy the menu of the day “hoy...menú” as the price is much lower than buying individual items on the menu.More
