“WOW what a meal!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This restaurant was about 2 blocks from our hotel and recommended by the hotel. It was amazing. The front part looks very small with about 10 tables, but go around the corner and the resturant goes on and on. The menu varies according to the day and you get a choice of 3 items....usually a filet of fish with different sauces accompanied by a salad, rice and 2 little fried Yucca potato balls. There is also a choice of a shrimp dish and a close to identical paella dish. The 3 different frozen lemonades are to die for on a hot day in Cartagena, and all this for $12,000 pesos....about $6.50 US plus your drinks. A really wonderful find in the old walled city not far from Plaza San Diego.

“Perfect lunch spot”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Such a cute little restaurant, with several rooms full of art. Food is delicious and well-presented, and the fixed-price menu rotates daily. Service can be a little slow and the limonadas are way too sweet, but the food, value and ambience more than make up for it. They're open from 11-4pm daily.

“Modern, fresh menu, great prices”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here with a group and everyone was very happy with their meals and service. The menu has a permanent section and then each day of the week has a different theme of extra available meals. Prices were cheap compared to most of the other tourist trap places - 15-20k COP for a main. Would definitely go again.

“One of the best lunch spots”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Food is great, juices are great (limonada de coco is a must), value is great. The only downside is that they are only open for lunch. It is easy to walk by and miss it if you are not paying attention.
