I believe the restaurant has closed. There are wonderful places to eat on the Media Luna and the Getsemani, and I was hoping to try this one based on the reviews, but try as I might, I couldn't find it. Closed? Perhaps...

We stumbled upon this one by chance as we went to Cafe Havana to find it was closed, so decided to try this one on our way back. Its a nice wee bar which serves great food and has a good selection of bottled beer. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the service friendly. Well worth a visit.

I was walking around Cartagena alone one night looking for a nice place with some good music, I was out for Jazz with no such luck. But what I did find was Ell Parche, they had a live music in the form of an amazing guitarist named Edwin and the best vibe in town. The owner, Niko was amazingly friendly... More
