Nice but noisy place. Food is nice but dishes are really small and too pricey. Service is good but the hostess is very snobby

After years of not coming to Cartagena our first dinner was here! What an awesome experience. Food delicious, service really good. I thought the plates were small but I was wrong. Perfect size. The atmosphere is excellent. I loved the decoration and the good.

I had the pork chop and it was fabulous. Perfect sauce, perfectly cooked, beautiful presentation. We had delicious appetizers, one shrimp, one eggplant. Again beautifully presented and delicious. Dessert was a wonderful chocolate fondant with ice cream. SO GOOD!

All of a piece with the dead feel of the old city of Cartagena - sadly killed by tourism.....this restaurant feels as if it has little connection to any Cartagena or Colombia that lives and breathes. The food is decent but expensive. Service good. And...More

After a difficult decision making on what to pick from the menu, we each chose a fish plate to share. Both were exceptional! Dessert was yummy and the service was excellent. However because of their success make sure you make reservations Bon appetit
