Great diner in the heart of the old Town. Live music and very much good food. Service is impeccable. Grilled octopus app was a highlight, we ordered a second it was so good. Call for reservations, quite busy always.

This is a wonderful restaurant situated in the centre of the old city. The staff and service was top notch, food was delicious and the scenery was old fashion colonial. This is definitely a restaurant I will recommend to anyone stopping by Cartagena.

Amazing dinner with a Cuban touch. Service is extraordinary. Atmosphere is pure Cartagena and lovely. Great chat with bartender prior to dinner and listening to lovely Cuban band (soft dinner musica). Could not have been more perfect. Can’t wait to return.
