5 stars all the way! Great tasting food in old town! Go there, people! Order everything! Wait staff was excellent! Recommendation: Please do not overcook the shrimp. 2 dishes we ordered (ravioli & grilled prawns) had the shrimp overcooked. Flavors were amazing.

No, there is not a dress code. Almost all restaurants in Cartagena do not have a dress code. You can go even wearing shorts or bermuda shorts.
