“Very good middle eastern food- great flavors, great service, authentic food.”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Very good "comida arabe"! I'd recommend the Plato Mixto, a very large entree (about US$25) that gives you a nice sampling of middle eastern specialties.
You can very easily order too much good here. The portions are very large.
I'd also recommend the tahine made with garbanzo beans- our favorite part of the meal.
Atmosphere was clean but empty until almost 9pm on a Saturday night.
I'd recommend for those trying to find something different in Cartagena. This place definitely made my top 10 in the city though.

“Good food, good place, High price”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I like this restaurant it was very clean and simple, with good food and great service. I have a hard time finding poor service in this city though. I have been told that some nights they have belly dancers at the restaurant but I never seem to be there on those nights. Over all it is the best Mid-easten food I have had in town but it is pricey.

“And I don't even much like Arabic food... :)”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

This restaurant is in a convenient spot in Bocagrande and is well worth the visit. Try the one of the mixto plates your first time and you won't be disappointed. It's a TON of food, so either get the half portion or split an entree. On most Friday and Saturday nights there is a belly dancer, which adds to the atmosphere. We've been back several times and the food is consistently good, which doesn't always happen in Cartagena.
