This was the second time we went to Tabetai - the first time was just as good as last night! The food was excellent, the service great and the price reasonable - what more do you want??? The only downside is that there are only five tables, so you might have to wait a bit to eat but I believe that is also one of the reasons why it is so good. I'll go back there anytime!

If this is the best sushi you've had (as other reviewers have said) you really need a sense check! Maybe for Colombia this is good sushi, but for any western standard this is not that great! It is also extremely overpriced (be prepared to pay US equivalents)! This was a mistake, a Colombian restaurant would have been a better choice!

Interesting concept of restaurant on/in a a ship container. Worked very well. Friendly and attentive service. Good was very good, amazing in fact. No complaints or cons, thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Great view of sea and sunset. Great chillout music to go with it. Top choice!

Just read latest review before mine, I have been to many and varied sushi restaurants, and this was special.

If this is the best sushi you have ever had (as some reviewers said), you haven't had good sushi! Extremely overpriced, and the sushi didn't look very fresh. I ordered a cooked eel appetizer, and it didn't even taste like eel. The green tea tasted like mint tea.

Colombian food is kind of boring afterwards. Sorry, Cartagena, but it's true. If I have to have another fish dish I don't want it fried. Stop it now. What I need is some healthy eating and delicious juice. That's what's to be found at Tabetai. Two of us reeled in the Maki 30 piece boat at a very reasonable price and for such mastery in the art of sushi. In fact, I took a few pieces home and savored them in the morning. Treat yourself. You're in Cartagena, damnit. And face it, you need to look good at El Cabo San Juan. Trust.
