You'd think that choosing the 'special tapas' menu on the Main Street in beautiful Cartagena would be a great experience. Sadly not. Several varieties of potatoe and a couple of other uninspiring dishes later...we were feeling ripped off. I'm sure this place is fine for a drink but the food is forgettable....and the service makes you feel forgotten!

Ate here twice during this trip away. Tapas is very good. Service is ok. Have not tried the menu of the day or dinner yet. I unfortunately do not speak Spanish, the staff do not speak much English, but we managed fine. Would recommend.

Great tapas and lovely house wines - this was a real pleasure. Recommended to us by the hotel, good position and great food choices - not just tapas.
