The restaurant itself is aesthetically nice although let down by a strong smell of air freshener. The food was faultless and delicious. The same cannot be said of the waiters who take top class food and deliver it in the surliest way possible. The cappuccino served at the end was like dishwater and was served with coffee running down the... More

I went to Don Juan for dinner with some friends. This is one of the best restaurants in town I might say, it has very good food, excellent service and a great location. It has a calmed ambience, so if you are looking for a fun restaurant, look elsewhere.

This WAS my favorite place in Cartagena. Environment did not change, romantic, calm and a great atmosphere of a Bistró. Good wines in the Menu. Food this time was fair. Both octopuses ordered was simple and with no grace, and with no flavor. I ordered two small (and very small) lobster and was burned. (I think on the menue needs... More

Light lunch composed of several cold and hot starters to share is perfect option for hot day in Cartagena, especially when combined with a bottle of delicious Chilean and perfectly chilled chardonnay, Green banana balls stuffed with beef and green papaya salad were probably highlights but also other dishes were quite interesting. Service is perfect and very helpful. Decor is... More

My adult family of five was able to get a reservation for a birthday dinner. This was one of the top picks for dinner out during out stay in the old walled... More

Nice place, ordered meat but one of our friend ordered Rissoto which was really good. Ordered medium rare but was served almost well done. They kindly changed my order but instead it was rare, took it back for a 2 minute cook and then it was ok but at this point did not felt like eating with same emotion as... More

My husband & I enjoyed our dinner at Don Juan. The Iberia ham appetizer was the best ever. The lobster tails were amazingly moist and flavorful. Don Juan provides a comfortable atmosphere as well. Would absolutely return!
