Can’t say much about the place. The loud live band was a distraction. Certainly didn’t add to a dining ambiance… the food terrible. The mussels should have been served in a garlic broth as they were dried out and not good. The edamame wasn’t hot...and not throughly cooked. There should have been a bowl to put both the mussel shells and the empty edamame in. My entrée, Chaufa Baruco was absolutely terrible! It’s was a rice and seafood dish. It included two shrimp and a couple of chewy calamari. The MAIN problem was that it was saturated in so much soy sauce that you could smell it! Absolutely a sodium bomb!!! Hats off to our server, Lorena. She was excellent! The only redeeming thing about the place. Not recommended.More

Kitchen Closes at 10pm on Fridays. We initially called and made a reservation but we were told by the hostess that the kitchen was closed at 10pm, when we arrived. This would have been the second time at this place. The first time was pleasant....The food was good, similar to a mid-range US restaurant. The drinks and music are really the draw.More

went here on vacation last week. myself and everyone at my table had food poisening. was in non stop stomach pain for 12 hours after the meal. its 8 days later and we are still ill. tried to tell the restaurant and they pretent not...to hear you on the phone. Some common courtesy would be nice after being sick for the last 8 days! Fui aquí de vacaciones la semana pasada. yo y todos en mi mesa tuvimos intoxicación alimentaria. tenía dolor de estómago durante 12 horas después de la comida. Son 8 días después y todavía estamos enfermos. Traté de decirle al restaurante y ellos fingieron no escucharte por teléfono. ¡Algo de cortesía común sería bueno después de estar enfermo durante los últimos 8 días!More

The restaurant offers a huge menu, with everything from sushi to fish dishes to pastas to meats. The cerviche was tasty, the grilled salmon tasteless, the aperol sprints was large but seemed diluted. Willing waiter, unwelcoming hostess. This had been recommended to me by a...local, but did mot live up to expectations unfortunately. Steady, but pleasant rock music is played.More

I've been to Cartagena before and this is one of the best - It's in a great area (across the street from Casa Pestagua) - The service was outstanding (ask for FERNANDO and SANDRA/hostess ) - He literally serves you the food and has first...hand knowledge of every dish. - The live music was good and yet not overwhelming where you couldn't hear each other. - I've recommended several people and they all have the same experience as well. Also the food is Peruvian, however they have many local Cartagena and Caribbean dishes as well...More

Excellent food, ambience and staff service. We didn’t have a reservation and the hostess did everything so we could get a table. The live show really gets you in a good mood. The food and the cocktails are just amazing. Really recommend this place.

We came to this restaurant by a recommendation from a local. I have to say, it was one of the best dinners I had in Cartagena. We shared some ceviches and tiraditos and everything tasted fresh and delicious. You can’t miss it if you go...to Cartagena. Plus the drinks are great too, as well as the ambience and the service. Oh! And they had live music when we went, which we enjoyed a lot.More

We visited this restaurant/bar as part of our family reunion and we loved everything. The food was delicious, service was great and the music was inviting. The place has a very special touch, it’s simply exquisite! It’s a must-see place! We definitely will visit it...when we go back to Cartagena in the near future. Very highly recommended!More

My friends and I were blown away by our meal here. The risotto is exquisite, the steak is tender and flavorful and interesting and they have the best coconut rice I’ve ever had. This combined with live music, a beautiful setting and great service makes...it a place you shouldn’t miss.More

Easily one of the best restaurants in Cartagena, no idea why it isn't rated higher. Menu was unnecessarily large however & the grilled octopus dish can be improved. Everything else was on point, great selection of cocktails, great atmosphere, live music, and reasonably attentive staff.
