Visited back in February while in Cartagena for vacation- we ate a lot of good food but this place was definitely our favorite!! Every dish was fantastic and service was great. Unique ingredients and flavors that all come together to make a delicious meal!

I did the cooking class a few days before, and it was so impressive I just had to come here for dinner. Being a weeknight, we didn't have to wait long and were seated immediately (table for 2). Service was generally decent. The food on...the other hand, was very good. The yucca gnocchi was impeccable. I've never eaten such tender gnocchi in my life! The fried local cheese and tomato jam dish was fabulous too. The slightly salty cheese, paired with crispy batter and topped with sweet jam? Must try. Please come here, do the cooking class, market tour, all of it!More

Our experience here was meh. The food was fine, the service was awful. I enjoyed the Colombian breakfast. My boyfriend’s açaí bowl was quite watery, although the presentation was nice. However, the waiters never checked in, and even when trying to get their attention they...would not look at us. We had to walk up to the counter repeatedly to get water, drink etc. A customer sitting outside had to stand up and wave through the windows to try to get their attention (which failed and she still had to walk inside to order coffee). Was definitely expecting more based off the reviews. Maybe we caught them on a bad day.More

It was a beautiful space the street behind the actual cafe overlooking la plaza de la Trinidad and the water. We met the chef and her assistant. Fresh fruits and vegetables were laid out and we created 4 delicious and beautiful vegetarian ceviches. I loved...that despite being vegetarian they were able to create a cooking class for us to appreciate the local food. The chef, Maria Delgado, was very patient and walked us through her food. The food was accompanied by panela and wine. We loved the location, the food, and the chef. I highly recommend this experience.More

We had lunch at Caffe Lunatico based on good reviews from a travel blog. The food is very good, the quality of an expensive gourmet meal in the States for a fraction of the price. We knew when the waiter spoke to us in English...and handed us English menus that this was a place that catered more to gringo tourists. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but if you're looking for the more authentic Colombian restaurant experience, this may not be the place for you. Also, expect rather slow service. We were there at the same time as a large tour group of French tourists, and they definitely got preferential treatment over us. It's a little pricier, perhaps, than some other places, but if you get their lunch special, you'll be fine. Also, be aware that they close at 3:00 until they open later for dinner.More

Excellent food, good service, nice cocktails. And not as expensive as most Restaurants in Cartagena. Probably the best restaurant we’ve eaten in since being in Colombia.

2 of us ate here we had the Angus Burger and the Spanish Omelette. Both dishes were good. The Angus burger came with small fried potatoes rather than chips but I’m told still very good. The Spanish omelette came with bread and tomatoes - so...an ample meal. Price worked out about £12 for the 2 meals. Spoke English.More

We had a really bad experience here. The reviews were great and was even an article in the Lure magazine . We ordered ceviches but was toldthey had none so we order tuna tartar and some beers. We waited and waited and waited we were...the second table to arrive. The other tables after us were being served umm. We order some more beers but was told sorry they were hot and offered us a different brand. I know this was a Monday but someone should do a better job of preparing the restaurant before the business opens. After an hour wait we paid for our beers and left. Very disappointing.More
