“Incredible View”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We spent a few days in Cartagena and we stumbled upon this place the first day..needless to say we came back everyday...the view is just amazing something out of a magazine! The music was relaxing same as the seating. We did not eat there just had some wine and enjoyed the view!

“went there two nights in a row”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

we walked here two nights in a row from our hotel. we were enthralled by the atmosphere on top of the wall ( you can sit at a table right on the edge) where you can watch the sunset , see the ocean, while having a drink or two. we didn't have dinner there, only nachos which were very good. go there just for the atmosphere, then take a calandria (horse drawn buggy) ride through town at night. wonderful!!!

“Great view and great food”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is located on top of the old wall. Great views, especially at sunset. The drinks were alright, but nothing special. The menu was limited but the food was exceptional. I understand everything is made fresh so the have a limited menu, and focus on food quality. I highly recommend the Fantasy of the Sea if available. One of the best seafood dishes I have had.

“Amazing view but terrible drinks”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We stumbled upon this cafe after watching the sun set over the ocean from Cartagena's walls and were immediately infatuated by its location overlooking the ocean. They have an open terrace with plenty of tables and lounging spots and chill beach music playing over the sound system. We ordered some drinks and grabbed a padded bench table close to the ocean side.

The drinks we ordered sullied the experience. Bad enough to take this place significantly down from a perfect rating because the view isn't any different than elsewhere on the wall.

We ordered a Cafe del Mar (champagne with Blue Curaçao), a Pina Colada, and a glass of wine. It took about 15 minutes to get our drinks and all of the drinks were a struggle to finish. The Cafe del Mar and Pina Colada were both unnecessarily sweet and the glass of wine did not taste good at all. At close to $10 a drink you're clearly paying for the view and not the taste.

We left a bit disappointed overall but might come back some day just to have a place to sit and watch the sun set.

“Great for a drink and the view”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

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.
