The food is good and they have different options from meat, fish and chicken. I really enjoyed the lemonade with coconut juice.
Although the waiters are very attentions, they don’t have enough waiters (and cooks) for the number of tables in the restaurant. So everything is very slow and takes awhile for everything you order.
They take reservations and credit card and is located exactly in front of the Hotel Sofitel Santa Clara.

The decor was very nice and the staff were helpful. Everything that we ordered was tasty and the juices were great too. The menu had food for everyone, we ordered a chicken dish and a seafood dish and tow seafood/rice dishes. Everyone was pleased with the food they ate! The appetizers were all good as well.

Fairly large place, but has separate rooms so the atmosphere is good. we ate here twice, lunch and dinner. Food is very good, and I would guess you will be happy with just about anything you order.We had seafood 3 of the four meals and the Oblata the other dish. All very good. The combined open bar 3 course evening dinner is worth it.

The décor is interesting. The food is good and the service as well. Not the best Cartagena restaurant, but a safe pick.
