We were starving when we got here - the restaurant was across the street from our hotel so it was an easy choice. We ordered a few different ceviches and a shrimp/crab/avocado salad. The ceviche was ok, same for salad. But we didn't feel that great afterwards so not sure if we got some bad ceviche? That was the end... More

A very nice patio in the heart of the city. The staff is friendly and the food is good. Don't expect for the very finest diner, it's just a good caribean local food diner in a nice outside atmosphere.

Our Hotel recommended and they were right on. We went for lunch and had a terrific meal served in the courtyard. So happy our hotel made this recommendation. The restaurant is bright, colorful with really great lighting streaking through the trees above. The lighting is so good here that my wife was actually able to get a decent photo of... More

Fresh and tasty seafood. Reasonable price. Don't let the old fashion lights around the palm tree fool you. Once you are in you will feel the good vibe of this restaurant.

I review this restaurant as a chef, food here is excellent. Fresh ingredients, good seasoning and flavour. Seafood is not over cooked. We visited her for dinner and ordered salad, seafood soup, Colombian ceviche and patakon. I told how food is good to waiters then lady chef came to our table and we exchanged the greeting. I highly recommend this... More

Buttery sea bass entree with sweet vegetables, coco rice and fried plantains. Extremely rich and generously proportioned to share. Comfortable, interesting ambiance. We went in with few other tourists and had their air conditioned back room to ourselves. The server was attentive and friendly, she came at all appropriate times and we never waited. One of our favorite meals in... More

We found this place while looking for another. Were invited in--never a good sign. But the patio has a wonderful, slightly decaying, Love in the Time of Cholera feel, like eating in Cartagena 50 years ago, very evocative and romantic. The food is what brought us back the second time. The "seafood explosion" soup is one of the richest broths... More

We went there for dinner and were pleasantly surprised with the patio area and how nice the restaurant was. while we waited for our table, we were not allowed to order a cocktail, which was very strange. When our food arrived, it was really really bad. Not going back anytime soon!
