We visited on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. With so many great restaurants in Cartagena, the small ones like this can sometimes be overlooked. The decor is simple and tasteful, very calming after a busy day.
My food was tasty, but my husband's crab and shrimp ravioli was fantastic. We would definitely return for that!

We ate here our first night in Cartagena and it was a good first meal. It is a long narrow dining room with bamboo ceilings, nice lighting and good service. The food was good, not extraordinary. Come if you need a peaceful break from the party atmosphere of many of the places in this town.

This restaurant is beautiful, very comfortable and the food was very good. The ceviche was very fresh and the service was great. I liked the ceviche with the Tigre de Leche sauce. Their fruit martinis are also very tasty.

I punctualize in FRESH because sometimes fish handling is not the best... but this place gets the most succulent and fresh fish in town and serves it on your plate Peruvian style: simple but well balanced.. hell exquisite! Good ambiance.

Their crab ravioli is the best dish in town. Amazing. The service was good and the ambiance was perfect. I've gone back a couple times and can't bring myself to order anything else because it was that good.
