Excellent little place to eat and enjoy a sit down meal. The little church nearby adds an antique touch to the place. However, be aware of people prying on tourist. They can be extremely annoying and will constantly bother you so you will eat at their place.

While staying in Cartagena, we had a rental house very close to Plaza Santo Domingo so in our daily travels we would often pass through this plaza. The iconic 'fat lady' statue is a must see. There are several places to eat in this plaza and lots of outside seating in the middle of the square. The reason for my lower rating is the large amount of people in this plaza that are trying to sell you all kinds of things and won't leave you alone. It's the same all through the city but I found this plaza to be one of the worst. The people are extremely nice and remembered us from walking through every day; however, they really don't know when to stop and as soon as you've gotten rid of one of them, there's already the next guy trying to sell you something. It doesn't make you want to stay and enjoy the scenery.
