Last night we had a set meal of pork loin, sirloin steak, and two types of sausage with potatoes, salad and chocolate cake with a bottle of red wine. The service was prompt and polite, the food was nicely cooked and presented, the salad had a nice light dressing and the bottle of red wine was very good for the price.

We'd recommend this restaurant to others, it has a lovely ambiance and we felt the set meal was very reasonably priced and good value.

Had a great dinner at Gaucha tonight. The mixed grill was tremendous and the waiter was super friendly and helpful. This restaurant is in Getsemani, which is a bit of a backpackers crowd so 99% of the neighborhood spots are focused on what a bargain they offer, but if you want a mid/upper range meal it can be hard to find in Getsemani. Gaucha was far and away the best meal we had in Cartagena. This place would fit in on a street in Manhattan or Europe. Great feel and super food. Well trained staff. Well priced. Don't waste your time in the old city. The restaurants there are overrated. If you want more than pizza, try it. Great churascaria.

Went looking for a little rump in Cartagena and found this place. Loved it. Argentine's know how to cook cow better than anyone and Rodrigo is a great host. Thoroughly recommended

I discovered this place by chance while hunting for dinner near my hotel, and vaguely remembered Lonely Planet recommended its Argentinian steak. Asked for medium rare, turned out more than medium, though the beef still tasted very good, so i galdly ate it with pleasure. The dish came with 2 small baked potatoes too. Served on a hot iron plate.
The bill did not come after i had asked some 20 minutes ago, and i settled it with the poor waiter on the bar and left not very happy.

Delicious bife de chorizo straight from the open grill cooked perfectly with tasty salad, good value for 30,000 pesos. Sicilian salad a good attempt. Great service and wonderful Getsamani location. There is a mixed grill for two with a bottle of wine which looked amazing but they couldnt offer a split of chicken (for my gf) and beef (for me) otherwise it would have been perfect. Enjoy!!
