Oddly, when you walk into the restaurant, you're seated in a lounge area to order a drink and watch the bartenders prepare your drinks with a few acrobatic embellishments. While I was a bit put off by some of the drinks containing fake green apple flavoring, the drinks I ordered, which contained actual ingredients, were creative and delicious. After a... More

The place is breathtaking, it has a very nice bar at the entrance it several rooms with very nice decoration. It is expensive but her food is worthy. I really recommend this restaurant as a high end dinning place.

This place was nice. It is located right in Centro, so it was very convenient. Additionally, the ambience and decor was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The food was good, but not great. I would say 3.5/5. I would go back, especially to listen to the live music on the patio.

The food is a great combination of local taste with a modern influence. The waiters are all very nice. They have english speaking staff. You have to leave some space for the Mamey pie as a dessert!

Our hotel (Sofitel Legend Santa Clara) recommended Alma as well as some cocktails to try especially once there. Both the cocktails, food and service were first rate. The SPA cocktail was fab & fresh especially on such a balmy night. Our waiter, Wilfredo, was excellent and spoke English fluently which was very useful as our level of Spanish is close... More

I was in Cartagena with my family over Christmas New Years, and we made the mistake of not making too many dinner reservations in advance, not realizing how impossible it is to get into the popular places that time of year. We had made a 1 reservation at Carmen luckily (which was spectacular), but beyond that we were stuck. With... More

The courtyard is beautiful and the service was excellent. Depending on your taste for music you might want to ask for a table close or far from the live band. The food was good but uneven: appetizers were excellent (ceviche) but the main course uneven, the risotto was excellent but the cazuela de mariscos so so. The service was very... More

We were really impressed with the ambience of Alma! The décor was very interesting, and tasteful, with some beautiful details in the doors, windows, archways, chandeliers, etc. We all enjoyed our meals, as well, and the service was quite good.

The Alma is part of the Hotal Casa St. Augustin. The staff and service was impeccable. The food was excellent, and the bar scene before and after dinner is dfinitely worth going to. Will be back!!!
