“Fine dining”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This was one of the best meals we had in Cartagena. Modern Coastal Colombian cuisine was a great change of pace compared to the other restaurants in town, and everything we had was superb - as good as anything you'd find in a haute restaurant in a large city in North America or Europe. It was a bit off the beaten path, but worth seeking out & highly recommended.

“Great for couples”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Small and well decorated house, perfect for couples. Food was amazing (recommend octopus carpaccio) as well as service and atmosphere. Important to make reservations well in advance.

“Poor”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

It didn´t help that the restaurant was completely empty on a saturday night but the food was very average for the price. Nice decor, friendly enough but not really worth it.
