Had dinner here and expected it to be good but it was just ok. The service was pretty bad I have to admit. I ordered the ravioli as an appetizer it was good but they brought it out in less than five minutes the sauce was cold. The salmon sashimi was OK. Then I ordered the fish in green sauce... More

Food is good without being exceptional or amazing. The Chef takes no risks serving good portions, nicely prepared. Restaurant is nicely decorated and staff is courteous. So, I'll recommend the place, just don't expect something incredibly fantastic as others have written for this place Lunch for two, sharing a starter and desert and each having an entrée with a bottle...

Their menu selection is small but really good. Ask the chef to recommend appetizers to share. You will be surprised. For main dish go for their seafood although they have good lamb, porch and veal. Very nice atmosphere mainly in the evenings. Their service is average

I went to Don Juan for lunch with my family and we were all highly impressed! We ordered Colita de langosta (lobster tail) langostinos (prawns) and garlic crabs for appetizers everything was extremely flavorful and fresh! What a delightful place. Service is impeccable and great atmosphere! I highly recommend this restaurant!

This restaurant looked inviting and came highly recommended, however once we sat down the service and atmosphere quickly revealed itself.. they wanted to get people quick and out, unfriendly service, unusual for Cartagena. Food just ok, nothing special.

One of the pricier restaurants in Cartagena, but definitely worth every peso. Try the octopus starter it is simply to die for!

There were 2 restaurants that were a must visit during my stay in Cartagena and this was one of them. Too bad it did not hit the spot as I expected. The ambiance was nice and the staff friendly. We were hurried through the menu however and had to tell our waiter to slow down. Taking the 7.30 pm slot... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. The service was excellent and the food was exceptional. We found the prices to be good. The restaurant is beautiful and it's a wonderful place for both locals and tourists.
