We ate at La Taperia twice during our week in Cartagena. We found it on our first night. The food is perfect after a long day of traveling. The owners speak very little English and we spoke very little Spanish, but it didn't even matter!...More

Yes, the owner takes credit cards. The owner and his wife are from Venezuela. They make the most delicious food. The place is small. Don't be taken aback. The owner even gave my family and I a ride back to our hotel... More
