Great music and amazing atmosphere greet you on your way in, fantastic flavor combination will keep you in for a while. Not too many options, they keep it simple and well done. One of the best pizza I've ever had (French onion soup).

This place is simply a jewel. With a retractable roof and garden in the back the setting is really special. Great selection of Colombian craft beers. Tapas is great especially pulpo and carimañolas. Fantastic service. Nice music and atmosphere.

We ate here twice and sent our friends who were visiting Cartagena at the same time. Excellent tapas and amazing pizza! The outdoor dining area is full of ambiance and it's all locals!
