I just came out of the restaurant and decided to write a review. The place has good food, a bit pricey for the area but you get a great view of the square. Good food, good vibes

We have had dinner three times. A table outside on the pavement, almost on street. A small round table, but the food was great. We enjoyed it every evening. There is always something going on at that place. Music, rappers, mime players, etc... Great place...More

Good place to have a few drinks specially because it has a really nice location, right in the middle of Getsemani neighbourhood! Well worth it because of its location!

From Long Island, got a Long Island ice tea and was pretty surprised about how good it was. Great atmosphere and music and sat outside to hear live local music.

Solar has a pretty ambiance and sports an excellent location, although lacking impressive food at a poor value. I would recommend those that want to sit and have a drink/food and watch the street performers at night, especially on the weekends, to come here.

Our food was much less than impressive, the music inside was loud, obnoxious and competed w the much nicer street music that was also very audible through the open doors and windows. In addition, we had several errors come up with our orders and the...More

Dear Elise, We are sad to read your experience in Solar was not a positive one. One could absolutely say the music outside is nice and as local neighbours with excellent relations in the barrio, we also like the music outside, but we're a bar...More

Had a hallumi salad which was surprisingly good! I went mainly for the Belgian beers but they were too pricey so I got a German wheat beer instead! The square this faces is the best in Cartagena. At night loads of people hang out and...More

Go there and enjoy the vegetarian pasta. Enjoy it with a glass of wine. Its located at "plaza de la trinidad", so you can enjoy the night shows of people at the square.

Worst restaurant experience in Cartagena. We ordered nachos and calamari and we got a sorry plate of Nachos from a bag with very little on top. Calamari is frozen and overly salted and when we asked for salsa and picante sauce they brought us ketchup....More

Solar - Bar & Food is a new trendy place to enjoy Cartagena and the artistic barrio Getsemaní. A cozy terrace with the perfect first-row view over the vivid Plaza de la Trinidad and 2 lovebird terraces upstairs makes it the ideal setting for a night as a couple. New is the "garden" on the 2nd floor, to go out with friends and groups. Solar also offers a large restaurant, which also can be used for birthday parties, "despedidas", marriage or family reunions. Grab a delicious Belgian beer or a select one of our better Gin & Tonics, cause Solar has an extended drink & cocktail menu. Solar plays hiphop, 80's & 90's, electronic music and international pop & rock music: what else is needed for the perfect night out. Oh and, don't forget the bar food with it's delicious burgers & excellent pizzas. PS: since February 1st, 2017, we'll be opening from 9am in the morning.
