Caribbean colors and designs acclimate site with images, objects and phrases of everyday life . Locals and famous visit this spot to enjoy the amazing caribbean flavors , like the " Picada Gestemani " ( callamari, shrimps and breaded fish + shrimp empanadas) and take a "Machacao" cocktail , originally invented by their owners. Dancing to the sound of cumbia, salsa, reggae , and African rythms performed by the live bands is a perfect plan that will infect you with joy and Cartagena style.

Nice mix of flavours and good variety of carribean fusion dishes, in a playful venue. We couldn't stay for the music..next time!

If you visit Cartagena and you like to go to markets, eat great food, speak with interesting people and then finish a delicious meal you must go with Jorge on Bazurto Social Tours. Jorge is truly a world-class, world-traveled citizen and chef. His gentleness if only exceeded by his humility. He may have been a star with Anthony Bordain but he seems almost uncomfortable if it comes up. He's much rather show you the "real Cartagena" and have you listen to the Champeta music and enjoy all of the fish. There was no downside to this experience. Do it. His gorgeous seaside house was worth the price of admission and the food, drink, tour and conversation were all extra pieces of nourishment.

Went to Cartagena along with two other Canadian friends and ventured out for a little nightlife. If you're looking for a welcoming place with great music, energy, food, and tasty drinks, this is the place. They specialize in Champeta music, which is a very lively Afro-Caribbbean type of dance music. Highly addictive and puts a smile on your face.
The service there is very friendly and it's in an easy location to get to in Getsemani, very close to the old city. Highly recommended for a taste of where the locals like to go to party and dance. If you feel like barhopping and venturing outside the old city, this is a great place to start and finish, being close to a lot of other good drink venues.

We signed up for what was billed as "A Cooking Class" when our cruise ship stopped at the port in Columbia, S.America.
The chef/ owner took the twelve of us on a hour and half tour of the local market where he buys his restaurant goods. It was really a most interesting market place as it had fruits, vegetables, seafood and fish we had never seen nor heard of.
We then arrived at his restaurant where he proceeded to set up his cooking stand to make us all a big pot of Paella.
Now we have had Paella in a number of places around the globe and this Paella was at the top of our list in tastes and ingredients. It was a seafood base with spices and flavors I had never experience before in a Paella. The results were outstanding. The cruise line we were on was the Celebrity ship Equinox. But I'm sure other cruise lines stop at Cartahana.(sp) Columbia. if they do askk about doing this cooking class. your palate won't be disapointed. This was a real dining experience if you know what I mean.
