Went here to have dinner today based on all the wonderful reviews. Owner had a notice up stating the restaurant is closed due to building renovations. The notice recommended checking their Facebook page for updates.

Went as a couple one night , met the owner Gerard had plenty of conversation with him. He gave us his recommendations for wine and food etc which we went along with and we were not disappointed. Food was lovely and the wine was beautiful....The meal we went for was 180.000 COP which was 3 portions of different Indonesian meals between two of us and a bottle of wine. Would definitely recommend visiting but just expect pay a bit more than surrounding restaurants.More

This restaurant has a verry nice Dutch owner and the food is also verry good. The Dutch owner welkomed us in a nice way and he told us a couple of things about Cartagena. It’s totally worth it to taste the Indonesian food overhere!

This little cosy restaurant is owned by a dutch guy who moved to Colombia quite some time ago. I can’t recall when exactly I had an explosion of that many awesome flavours in my mouth! Although it’s not typical Colombian at all, this restaurant is...definitely worth more than only one visit. We ordered a menu for two people (either having meat or fish as main dish) and the bottle of wine was included in the price. While we ate at a few great Colombian restaurants, this was definitely our favourite during our stay in Cartagena! The owner takes the time to talk to his clients and is super friendly. I can only recommend a visit. Thanks Saint Roque, for an amazing food-experience!More

Thank you for hosting us at your restaurant! The meal was amazing and your personal attention to your customers is exceptional! The dinner might be a little more expensive than other restaurants, however, you are supporting a great cause where some of the proceeds go...to homeless kids. We wish you good luck, Your friends from Switzerland, Tanja and NaomiMore

We had a great meal in this restaurant which will definitely not dissapoint you. Gerhard is a great host and next to that you will sponsor Gerhard’s project dedicated to helping underprivileged local children to go to school.

It was a relieve to find an oasis of proper Indonesian food in Colombia. Gerard is a friendly host with interesting stories and the fact that he left the Netherlands to help poor children adds to his charismatic aura. The food was delicious and affordable:...an absolute recommendation!More

Sorry for the delay! The chef is very detailed and concerned about his clientele. I’m sure that if you mention a food allergy or food issue, he will be accommodating.
