We were recommended this spot, and the location is definitely one of a kind. Its real value is the location and enjoying a drink. The menu is limited, and rather over priced. The food was good, but nothing that commands the prices.

This is a great place to watch a sunset in Cartagena. It's busy and the service is slow (I'm being nice). We were hungry and ordered food and were greatly disappointed. My recommendation is to watch the sunset someplace else along the way and skip the poor service, bad food, and bad service.

We had wonderful cocktails at this bar/cafe on the old stone walls around the old city. You look out to sea, and about 6pm can watch the sunset from behind the cannon. I can recommend the caiparinhas. Very strong.

Locals don't like Cafe del Mar saying it's too expensive and touristic. But it's a really must see and you can have one beer with 9,000 pesos (approx USD 5), so it's worth going just to check.
The view is beautiful, sunset is breathtaking and it's a lounge bar on the top of the walls of the Ciudad Amurallada. Don't miss it!

I went there (as most people I guess) to enjoy the sunset over the Caribbean Sea. I recommend arriving a bit earlier than the sunset, to be able to get a table right next to the old walls and have the best view without anyone in front of you.

I just had a couple of drinks there so I cannot judge the food.

Staff was friendly. Atmosphere is great with relaxing (soft) lounge music.

Definitely recommended!
