“Our go to beach spot....”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

To begin, you don’t go to Cartagena for pristine beaches. But you do go for fun, good food, square prices and really nice people along with a city that’s strikingly beautiful.

But if you like the beach and want it to be a chill experience, Muelle a block or two southwest of Hotel Dann is a great place to spend the day. We found it by accident taking a walk from our rented condo near the Capilla del Mar on carrera 1. Hubie, one of the waiters laid it out pretty simply---“eat and drink here and you get lounge chairs, a freshwater shower and freedom from the vendors. ” Hubie sold us…

He runs the downstairs section…but nothing against Hubie, our next five visits were upstairs with Jhonny. The view from the second floor to the beach was beautiful. Really good drinks, freshly made juices, ice cold beer and some good dishes like octopus in Cartagena sauce, seafood rice and the whole snapper " la plancha" on the charcoal grill.

They also have free wifi….the great mystery is why this place isn’t packed…although on a Sunday it was hopping. Everyone here was super friendly…Jhonny rocks. The food is good, the music wonderfully random---i.e., Metallica, Rick Ross, Shakira, Chris DeBurgh, Gregory Isaacs and Thievery Corporation can all be heard in a 30-minute span. And you see Colombians ordering bottles of Old Parr Scotch with ice buckets and bottles of soda water. If you’re lucky, someone will grab one of the strolling bands and pay them to play a few songs.

“We've Become Regulars”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

El Muelle is our favorite beach spot both for lunch and to spend either a morning or afternoon. The service is very personal and I can't say enough about Johnny ( both of them ). Nice selection of sea food and I highly recommend the "canastas de cammerones"

“Great place - right on the beach”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Three minutes' walk from our hotel (Hotel Dann), this place is 10 feet from the beach. So far we've eaten there twice. The food is excellent and the service a bit bumbling but friendly and real. I would happily go there again tonight! Caution: mixed drinks may be very different from what you're expecting, so order carefully and just enjoy what you get! I like this place a lot.

“Good place for relaxing and good eats”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

This place is within el Laguito neighborhood. It has a deck by the water and an upstairs area, birth with lounge chairs. The food is good, and the beach vendors are not allowed in the place so it makes it a lot better than the pool. Sunsets are spectacular, since the sun sets on the water. Great find!
