My wife had mouth watering pescado al a plancha with a sauce flavored similarly to the cazuela. The cazuela de mar was absolutely fantastic - the best I have had so far. Delightful wait staff and charming dueña. Ambiance is cozy and cheerful. Prices were reasonable. Going again, despite many other worthwhile options.

Outstanding food and service. This quaint place is delightful. While on a 3rd Rock Adventures trip, another traveler and I just wanted to split something to eat for lunch. This place was a great find. The owner of the restuarant oversees the quality and the portions, that they happliy split for us, was rather large. A great value for what... More

Still dreaming of that dish eaten 3 mths ago. Recommended by the owner herself. So flavourful and magical in my mouth. Amazing! Need to go back to Colombia for that someday:)

The little restaurant doesn't look like anything special but the food speaks for itself. Make sure you are hungry because the portions are huge and you won't want to leave a drop! Exceptionally friendly staff and a very relaxed atmosphere.

Couldn't leave Cartagena without trying this restaurant. Made lunch reservations for opening time (12 noon), we were there ten minutes before and restaurant was open. Very small place but very pleasant atmosphere. All the tables filled up within minutes, noticed that most were locals and knew the staff. Lots of take out orders were being processed. Service was great, ordered... More

We had some delicious seafood dishes in this small restaurant inside the old walled city. The staff are quick and helpful. You should make reservations as it's a small popular place.

Visited two days in a row. The Cazuela de Mariscos was by far the best thing I've eaten in Cartagena. Doña Dubis, the owner, is warm and accommodating. There can be a significant wait (we waited around 40 minutes for our food), but it's worth it!

Good, basic food in a clean restaurant in the heart of the touristy section of the walled city. Service was wonderful! We had lunch here and were happy with our meals. The seating was tight but comfortable and we appreciated the air conditioning on a very hot day.

It's early evening in the wall city, all the horse drawn carriages are out, the street lights are illuminating the old city streets you are in Cartagena. What an enchanted place, if only the walls could talk... We had a great dinner at Portin de San Sebastián big servings anything from meat to seafood everything and anything for the whole... More

Tiny place but with great food. I ordered the sea bass fish and it was absolutely delicious. Plenty of food! One dish could be enough for two people.

Thank Fabio C
