“Nice place for a drink or to watch a match, but don't waste money on dinner”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

The food was ok, but it was really expensive for the quality. The fish didn't taste fresh, eventhough the restaurant is right on the ocean. We both ordered grilled fish and it took a really long time for them to bring out our plates. If you want a drink on the beach with a nice view, this is the right place. Don't bother going here for dinner...it's overpriced and really average.
We went here a couple days later to watch the world cup and have a drink and it was perfect for that circumstance.

“Super view but...”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

I had the opportunity to eat here last weekend and I must say the view is great but for the price you pay for a meal it is not worth it and, the cherry on top, the food is not all that. I rate the restaurant low based on quality of food versus price.

I do recommend going there for drinks and the view and I can image at dusk would be the best time.

“A nice surprise”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Bocagrande is not our favourite part of Cartagena but the small beach at El Laguito is very pleasant with a nice breeze and pleasant swimming. El Muelle surprised us because being on the beach we expected inflated prices and sub-standard food. We tried three dishes - two light appetizers which were their special "mango ceviche" and a trio of prawn dishes in green banana baskets [both were big enough for a lunch] and the more substantial seafood rice which was served with french fries. All very nicely presented and tasty. They also have a shower available for guests to sluice down after a dip. The beer at 3,500COP [$1.75/£1.10] is not the cheapest but less than we paid at a "rip-off" shack on the main beach. A good place to take a book and spend a few relaxing hours.
