Located in El Centro district the "pulpo" aka Octopus warm salad was a delicious blend of flavors. The primary being the octopus it was tender and tasty with liberal amounts of shrimp and accessories. Only negative is that it is pricey and with a little spanish and due diligence the same quailty and flavor can be sampled be asking the locals.

Very small with just three/four tables outside (don't know about the inside), but a great place to stop either just for a drink or lunch. Coconut rice paella was excellent, as was whatever I had the second time we went which was a great hot prawn dish with rice. Reasonably priced - we paid around $30 for two, for a dish each plus drinks.

La cevicheria is a great place to have a cold drink, a refreshing plate of ceviche (a must from colombian cuisine.) Food is good and service fast. The place is not fancy at all but if you manage to get a table outside you may enjoy to see and experience cartagenas street life. It is a bit over priced but good enough to be the only restaurant where we ate twice in cartagena.

Poor ambience and lack of value not withstanding, the food was just not that great...

Was also annoyed they went straight to the most expensive item when you asked for a cerviche recommendation.

Its ok. We had seafood salad and it was not amazing, but the octopus inside was pretty good so i would think the ceviche is a good option. Pricey.
Sit outside, its a small terrace in the street but its worth the wait. Nice music.
