“Great Restaurant with excellent food”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

went here with a group, had a great meal, good cocktails. The ceviche dishes were impecible. i would highly recommend this place. one note, they made a major error in our bill, want to think it wasnt intentional but it was so erronious, that i beleive it was intentional. we werre drinking a lot, maybe they thought we would notice. a single shot of good tequila is usually $40, they charged me $480. we brought it to their attention, let the cluster begin. beyind that, try ot just pay attention to the charges.

“Great food!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

I had a wonderful lunch in this Peruvian restaurant in the old historical centre of Cartagena.

Staff was friendly and helpful recommending dishes (and English speaking for some of them). They do have an English menu for the Spanish speaking beginners like me.

Food was absolutely excellent, especially the ceviche with avocado and fried calamari.

The decor is beautiful and charming.

Just don't expect it to be cheap, it's not, but I don't regret any single pesos that I spent there!

“Muy bueno”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

I'm going to start backwards.... The dessert was soo good! we ordered the maracuya (passion fruit) chesse cake and it was outstanding!
The ceviche is really good and the grilled octopus was also good!
Service was good,we had to wait a bit longer for the food but it was worth the wait.
Price?...not cheap but agrees with Cartagena standards.

“Muy buena comida, aun que no mejor que otros menos pretenciosos”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

First warning is that you can't go in flip flops, unless you have some greater contact (we were not allowed but we saw somebody else wearing it inside). This place seems to be THE place now, so it's always busy, even in this case the service is very good, fast and friendly. Portions are great size and the mix of peruvian with colombian is greatly done here. The mero in aji amarillo is spicy on the right amount, for sure a recommended option. Dessert was good, just not amazing, I guess this is a spot that cartegena restaurants can improve a bit.

“For the price paid, I would have expected more”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I have to admit that from outside and even with the decoration inside, the place looks really nice. Adding to that when we were there the presence of live band, the place was even charming. Now we came in to eat, and for the price that we paid, I was expecting better food. The plates presentation and the taste were not that impressive. I would recommend it for a drink, just to enjoy the atmosphere and the music, but not for the meals.
