This small but perfectly formed restaurant was undeservedly quiet on the evening we visited. The interior courtyard is elegant and intimate. The service was caring and efficient. Delicious bread and house pate were served whilst waiting for the generous quantities of tasty food - we had selected the Cartagena style Lomo, three large medallions of fillet accompanied by an Avocado salad and excellent Coconut rice. Reasonably priced wines and great coffee completed our enjoyable experience.

We are staying at Casa la fe and just walked into this restaurant without checking TA. Glad we did. We had big lunch at the Native restaurant and wanted to go easy at dinner. We ordered three appetizers and they were excellent. The atmosphere is big spacious and romantic.

The food here is very good and the location is quite picturesque, but the very best thing about this meal was the service! Attentive without being obtrusive. The wine list is extensive as we'll. We will go back!

We spent 5 days in Cartagena, so we ate in many of the restaurants. There are plenty of options for good food in the medium price range, but we encountered many servers who seemed totally indifferent, or who were too busy to give you a second thought. That was definitely not the case here. The food was very good, with some creative touches and the service was outstanding. I highly recommend FM.

You're walking around the walled city in Cartagena, getting hungry and feeling very hot. It's only mid-afternoon and there aren't many restaurants open. Then you walk by a door with the letters "FM" on the front. You venture inside with your favorite husband to find a lovely patio with fans, white table cloths, no customers and waiters who patiently listen to your terrible Spanish (to find out that they speak English). You have one of the best meals of your trip. Pate, Gazpacho, shrimp, steak, wine - all is excellent and not expensive. You also have one of the most romantic meals with your mate since Venice. Give it a try with someone you care about!
