Description: Open since 1956, the Club de Pesca restaurant is an icon of Cartagena and the best place to watch the sunset. It is possible to appreciate a view towards the modern and old Cartagena, as well as yachts and sailboats of the attached marina. They offer tables inside and outdoors. It has an extensive wine list to match its main protagonist: seafood. The only restaurant on the water where it can be accessed by land or sea. A classic inside the fort of La Colonia.

We had our last dinner in Cartagena at Club de Pesca. The location is wonderful as it is right on the water and we were fortunate to sit outside. They have a pretty comprehensive wine list and enjoyed a recommended bottle of white wine from Spain. We had the scallop appetizer (highly recommend) and a crab appetizer (OK). For dinner, two had the seafood casserole which was really a soup in a very rich broth and included fish, mussels, clams, shrimp, and lobster. One had a chicken dish and I had the chef's fish. All were fantastic. For dessert, the ladies ordered the chocolate cake and said it was worth the 20 minute wait. Overall, the food was 5 star. Unfortunately, the service was very, very slow. There was a large group at the restaurant which resulted in our slow service. We waited almost 45 minutes between courses and while I was relaxed and enjoying the atmosphere, it was a little long.

This place had it all...waterfront view, delicious food, great wine list and impeccable service. There is outdoor seating and also air conditioning for those very hot & humid days.

I can’t say enough about Club de Pesca. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful romantic date night with our table right by the water. Our dinner was absolutely delicious and our Waiter could not do enough for us. Everything was fantastic! If you’re staying in Cartagena or perhaps the Walled City do yourself a favor and venture out – the food, service, and view are well worth the cab ride.

This was easily our best dining experience in Cartagena. Club de Pesca came on a recommendation from a friend and did not disappoint. The food, drinks, and service were impeccable. The food was decadent -- I wouldn't hesitate to order anything on the menu. We had 2 or 3 appetizers and 2 main dishes and we if we could have fit more we would have! There was also live music but unfortunately the night we were there it rained pretty hard and the band had to battle the elements and ultimately got rained out. They seemed frustrated and it seemed as if the singer left and they got someone else to fill in -- that person was pretty bad and the equipment was having issues due to the rain. There was also another band across the water that was rocking and loud - basically they Club de Pesca band had a tough time...was a shame because it would have been nice to have music during our meal the whole time. None the less this and the rain did not take away from our experience. The staff even lent umbrellas for the guests who had to use the bathroom - overall a 5 star dining experience and we would go back in a heartbeat!

All things good in Cartagena are packed into this restaurant. A city skyline of old and new, a historic building and, of course, fantastic seafood.

I'm keeping this review short, as you will have read the others. It's great. Typically Cartagena.

If you only have a few nights in Cartagena then try this restaurant. It isn't cheap, but worth a splurge. And if you are trying to impress, or on a romantic dinner, this is a good choice.
