We have eaten here on 3 different occasions and we have not had a bad dish yet, it's very busy but the atmosphere and food are excellent, it's also extremely cheap. I have had meat, fish and chicken dishes with soup to start, for me...the fish was best but I would happily have the other 2, my partner is vegetarian and they've always made a decent plate of food for herMore

This restaurant was DELICIOUS. Our tour guide recommended it when we asked where we could get great Colombian food/ where the locals eat. If you’re into eating food in a fancy restaurant and posting for Instagram, this isn’t the place for you. It’s a no...frills restaurant with damn good food. I had the seafood rice and my husband had the pork loin which came with a side of soup with a plaintain. I also had some lulo and passion fruit juice which was Sooo good. We left very satisfied and the prices are so reasonable. Highly recommend! (Pesos only, no card.)More

Possibly the first time a guide book recommendation has lived up to the hype. We ate here three times and enjoyed the food, drinks and atmosphere every time. The portions are huge and such good value. If you're hungry, definitely go for the menu del...dia: a huge bowl of soup and an even bigger main (meat / fish, rice, fries, salad and plantains). The juices and lemonades are also great (and massive!). On top of all that the service is super fast and the waitresses are a great laugh.More

This place is ideal for authentic Colombian food and experience. Locals flock here and it is clearly for the dishes packed with flavor. The arroz con pollo is TO DIE FOR. Very affordable and huge portions. You will need to know Spanish to get by,...but that makes the experience even better.More

This is the best place in Getsemani to get really good typical local food. Most of the people eating here are locals as well. The service was good and fast, the prices are excellent, and the portions just right. The decor is super fun and...funky.More

We walked by one evening and came back every evening of our stay. It’s full of locals, few to no tourists, food is great and portions are massive. The two mamas are two lovely people and we hope to come back one day! Skip the...touristy places and eat one of those: all fish, tipico montanero and frijoles!More

This small local cantina offers plenty local dishes of good quality for good value. We had chicken soup- that contained parts of the whole chicken - but was very tasty. So was the grilled chicken and the Bandeja Paisa.

I highly recommend stopping by and eating here if you want to eat traditional Colombian cuisine. They offer very generous portions, and their pescado frito (fried fish) is an excellent dish to try. The staff are incredibly friendly, but do not speak English. They do...have an English menu though (just flip the menu over to the back side). They are open early so you can eat breakfast here also, but it is a different menu. Everything on the menu is amazing and reasonably priced. You can definitely order the sancocho de pescado and share with another person (soup, fish, rice, and more). I would definitely eat breakfast or lunch here.More

Went to this place to taste the Sancocho de pescado. The place was packed with mostly locals and we were seated pretty fast but with another person on our table. Apparently this is how they do things. The food was good and was very cheap....I had fried fish with rice and beans, fish soup and soda for about US$4. It was nice experience to be able to eat where the locals eat.More

Had the best meal during stay in Cartagena here at Coroncoro. Had the fried fish and it was plentiful and fresh. Also ordered natural juices and they were big and cold to confront the heat. This place is not fancy, it’s warm, and it’s very...inexpensive. $6usd fried fish plate. If you’re looking for local cuisine and down to earth Cartagena people... you found it.More

The hotel where I stayed told me about this restaurant. In a quest to explore Getsemani, I was able to finally find Coroncoro. I ordered their fish lunch special for 10,000 (less than $4.) My meal was delicious: fried fish, rice, beans, salad, plantains, and...soup. The server who attended me was very welcoming and food was served quickly. If you're looking for local, hearty, and an inexpensive meal, this is the place.More
