It has a very unique combination of local dishes with a fantastic fusion gourmet style. A very original menu in a cozy ambience. Really worth visiting. Not cheap but reasonable prices for excellent food, a very good value.

It took us forever to find this place and we arrived later than our reservation and in a sweat. The food was good but not great, not worth the frenzy in trying to get there. My fish was over done and the fried calamari a bit rubbery. It's possible that we chose a time not long before closing, though we... More

We have been here in Cartagena for almost six months and we've had a lot of good. We've been pleased how many appealing restaurants. This place is in the old city so walking and shopping are convenient from there. The atmosphere is pleasant. The decor has iconic religious icons but portrayed artfully. The AC is great as well. The wait... More

This is quite a luxurious restaurant, you probably wanna wear something nice. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and the food is good. Make sure to check the menu options: a 3-course meal with 2 hours open bar is good value for money!

This incredible place was highly recommended in the Lonely Planet Guide. All the major Colombian traditional dishes are revisited and twisted in a modern revisitation that deliver authentic sophisticated dishes in a very glamour restaurants.

The food was wonderful! It is a little on the high end for Cartagena and Colombia, but by far was the nicest restaurant I ate at in Cartagena. The setting holds true to its name, and even though the dining space is very open it is not too loud. I had ceviche, one of the fish plates, and coconut flan.... More

This restaurant has an excellent deal. Open bar or unlimited wine with an appetizer, main course, and dessert for an incredible price. We've eaten here both times and been very impressed with the food and the service. I highly recommend going here.

Very nice food and atmosphere. Desserts are named after seven deadly sins to keep with the theme of saints and sinners but it is not gimmicky. Very nice food and elegant presentation. More elevated than the usual fare.
