Description: Its menu is composed entirely of culinary creations made with love and passion for cooking equipment. A magical place in the fascinating city of Cartagena, the only goal is that all customers come to enjoy and relax. Fusion between Latin America and Asia is the essence of the restaurant. The perfect pairing with the selection of wines from our Sommelier .

We were a group of 13 for dinner and each of us thought this restaurant was the best food we had in Cartagena AND all of Colombia. The food was just delicious - vegeterian and carnivorous dishes alike. The ambiance was perfect - trendy, energetic but, not loud. The location is in beautiful old town. But, the thing that won us over was the service. William took such wonderfully attentive care of each of us. Truly a great experience dining at this restaurant.

Interesting menu composition, brilliant service (patient with our Spanish too..), really good food, compliments to the chef! Had robalo marinera and deep fried langostinos for mains, cannot fault either, and the fantastic tuna tataki to start with. Great cocktails. Make sure you book in advance, not much capacity.

Cons: there is something weird about the layout of the place, feels like the space could've been utilised a lot better. Also, the moment the live band arrived and set themselves up behind our table we had to put the conversation on hold, couldn't hear a thing. Had amazing stuff on the table to focus on instead so no big deal :) Good experience overall.

This was by far the best meal we ate in Cartagena. Highly recommend this if you want a really nice dinner in a beautiful part of the old city. Small lovely setting (romantic if one wishes). Food was so fresh. A tuna melted in our mouths with exquisite flavors, and another fish dish remains some of the finest bites of food I've enjoyed. Platana's with a passion fruit dipping sauce was a great way to start! Excellent wine selection. Staff was very friendly, and the chef even came out to see. Can't recommend this restaurant enough, and if back in Cartagena, we will return.

Excellent, attentive service and food. Loved how the waiter put warm water on what looked like a big pill and it grow into a hand towels. The evening started with magic!
