First, get the eggplant with cheese. It is delicious. The fresh bread is also wonderful. Besides the food the cocktail menu was incentive and delicious. Seats available outside on the square or inside the cozy little bar.

Sitting outside in the plaza at night was a pretty magical. Creative cocktails. The food was fine - nothing remarkable. Good tomato soup and lamb sliders. Didn't like the shrimp toasts. Worth a trip.

Best meal and cocktails we had in Cartagena! We loved it so much that we went twice during our only four day stay in the city. The tapas are creative, well portioned, and well priced for what you are getting. By the end of our...More
