We stumbled upon this place while walking in the heat of the day. It was their lunch special sign that caught our attention... A starter, main, dessert and a drink for 12000pesos (approx $6usd).

The food was fantastic. Warm plantain chips with homemade sour cream, delicious lentil soup and hearty main dishes for such a great price!

We loved the decor as it kept in line with the traditional colonial feel of Cartagena. And not to mention the husband and wife duo who I believe are the owners, they were friendly and added a special touch to the food they served.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Titote, which was an extremely pleasant surprise as we only ate there because we were starving, & it was the 1st restaurant w AC we passed. The space is huge & very nicely cooled by the AC. The staff were friendly & helpful. The food was delicious & quite reasonably priced. This was one of the best meals we had in Cartagena!

Went to titote after reading all the reviews on trip advisor and left disappointed. The food is not bad although my calamari were too greasy and the place itself isn't very attractive.
The service was good . Overall, I wouldn't recommend it as there are better places to eat in Cartagena.

The atmosphere is great, the cocktails were fun and very special, but the food was excellent in flavor and presentation. We have been in many restaurants around the world and this is one of the best. Since it is fairly new we could find a table but we are sure that very soon it will be very difficult to find a place. Do not miss this good restaurant.
Visiten este restaurante. De verdad vale la pena. Que comida tan rica!!!!

Titote is easy to miss as you stroll along the old town of Cartagena. However it would be a huge shame to visit Cartagena and not eat at Titote. This is because Titote is easily the best restaurant on the Caribbean coast of Colombia.

Beyond the fairly anonymous looking glass doors the restaurant is housed in a cavernous colonial building with an open kitchen and two bars. On the particular evening I dined, I was entertained by an excellent Cuban band. The atmosphere was wonderful and the service attentive without being fussy.

However the food is the real star of the show. Easily as good as you'll find in the very best restaurants in London, incredibly fresh and cooked to order in the open kitchen. The menu consists of a number of traditional Costeno / Caribbean dishes, lots of seafood, stylish Colombian food and other experimental plates. I had the house special, seafood casserole: incredibly tasty, very fresh and presented extremely well. The deserts are equally special.

Top service too. If you are in Cartagena you need to dine at this restaurant at least once. I guarantee it will be the best dining experience of your trip.
