Nicely located right next to the wall and close to Santo Domingo and offers great ambiance, unfortunately, food is nothing special. For entry, we asked for a lobster croquettes and they were oily and flat-tasted. Eggplant fettucini and fish (Mero) were good but not mind-blowing.

Plaza des Armas has a lovely location in a historic inner courtyard in Old Cartagena. The menu is primarily Italian, but,as we discovered, not just "typical" Italian - we enjoyed our best meal in Cartagena - thanks to the recommendations of our delightful waiter (who grew up in California!). My lobster ravioli was delicious and was accompanied by a "perfect" crisp Pinot Grigio. The prices were reasonable, especially for a tourist town. If you are looking for a sure bet in Cartagena, this is the place to go!

I had an excellent dinner the other night in Cartagena with Plaza de Armas. My wife had the lobster raviolis and I had the beef tenderloin with a dry sack mushroom sauce absoultely incredible. The service was great we dinned in their outdoor patio. If you are ever in Cartagena Colombia I def recommend this place.

Very difficult to find good dining places in Cartagena, service usually bad everywhere we went. A taxi driver recommended Plaza de Armas located in the old city and we loved it. You can find a variety of international food, mainly italian, but still very international. I tried the lasagna and I adore it. I am a lasagna lover and this one was really good. Some of my friends order the seafood platter and it was also delicious. My girlfriend had the a fish in a white wine sauce absolutely amazing. Very very good food. I highly recommended.
The outdoor plaza very romantic. A must go.

This is one of the best restaurant I have ever been. I am from Miami, and we have a huge variety of excellent restaurants here, but Plaza the Armas is one of the best you can find in Cartagena. The food is amazing, I had the grilled seafood and it was amazing. The service is great, Diego the sommelier can advise you of the best wines. The ambience is spectacular. It is a mix between modern contemporary and colonial. The live music is great. Prices are reasonable. Greatly recommended.
