“Good for people watching”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

The restaurants around the plaza are mostly indifferent, although all are active in touting for business. There are some overly-expensive emerald and jewellry shops on the approaching streets, but its still a great place to search for souvenirs from the trinket sellers, to pose next to the Botero statue, and see if anyone is getting married in the church.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Such a wonderful place to sit and soak up the delightful atmosphere of Cartagena - pass a few hours sipping a cocktail and people watch! Great during the day under an umbrella, or at night under the stars...

“fashionable place”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

In my opinion Plaza Santo Domingo is full of expensive bad restaurants that serve mainly tourists. it is plenty of girls that try to attract you to their restaurant which serve mainly in the tables scattered in the open square. the restaurants are fashionable, but I did not find any that worths a good review.
Anyway the place is very nice, the building are amazing and at night it is full of shows and concerts.

“Nice and folckloric place”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

It was delightfull to view The tourist, the locals, the town people, if you're with children I would recommend to bring it in the afternoon. In the late night a lot of buzz and fun, good music.
