“Old World Charm just outside the old city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

We made reservations by phone for our party of four for a midweek dinner. When we arrived, the place was just about empty at 8:30, and we feared the worst, even though the reviews had been good. We had nothing to worry about. The dinner was excellent and the service was not only extremely professional, but extremely friendly. Our Spanish is quite limited, but our waiter called over another when we had an impasse in understanding. Even the wine he recommended, one of the least expensive on the list was very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant with old world charm to anyone seeking a really good meal for a really good price.

“Yum!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

This restaurant is just outside the walled city. If you come here after 8 on a weeknight there are probably not going to be a lot of people there. No big deal though because the service and the food is still great. The lobsters are fresh and tasty and are prepared in many different ways or you can have them prepared to your liking. Everything was very tasty and relatively inexpensive considering the amount of food we received. Definitely come hungry and check this place out.

“An Institution In Seafood In Cartagena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

This restaurant offers a fresh selection of the best lobster caught daily from the Atlantic Ocean. I love the creativity in the menu and all the different options, so much to chose from, hard to decide. Langosta Tres Sabores (a platter with lobster combinations) was my favorite.

Search no more, ain't nothing like La Langosta when it comes to seafood in this magic city.

“Group of 10”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Lobster was pretty good. I had the lobster with white wine sauce. We also ordered the surf and turf, Lobster Tropical, mushroom soup. All which was finished so it was good. The coconut rice was pretty good here as well. The lemon pie was excellent. The ceviche was mediocre. Garlic bread was good. Service was attentive. The bill was reasonable too. The place was quiet for a Sunday night. I guess the locals could find a better deal elsewhere.
