We had to wait for 20 min outside do to the fact that the place is very small and only has 4 tables. The place doesnt takr any reservations but we still called and have them put our name on the waiting list.

The food is really good and the service very fast. The only problem we had was the credit card, the only card they don't accept is Amex and we only got told when we had the bill on our table.

In a small place of Cartagena is Tabetai, here you will find a symphony of flavors, colors, textures and shapes is attached to surprise to the last bite, I recommend the experience.
Each combination has all the heart and creativity of its owner, never met someone so, it seems that each piece is a part of him.

I am very grateful for the experience, I hope to see them again.

Quaint Japanese resto with 5 tiny tables and small bar. Expensive for the quality of food that they serve. But service is excellent.

It's a tiny place but very funky. We went at 8pm on a Friday night, and had to wait on a bench outside for about 20 minutes. Not a problem, great people watching with the fashion show walking by!
For those of you from the States, the menu is very limited to about 5 types of Sushi. The "Crabmeat" by the way, is just like that in the States...not real crab, but Krab. Just so you know! I was expecting the real thing, since it is a seafood town, so I neglected to ask, and Krab is what I got. Prices are about the same as what you'd pay for Sushi at home, but this is one of the pricier restaurants for this city. They also have one Japanese Beer available, Kirin.
