Quite good food and wine selection with a good atmosphere. Make sure you get a reservation otherwise you will be in a room vice the more desirable old world style section which is open and more inviting. Good for kids (there were some) or adults looking for great food and music. One downside is that it was so loud it was difficult to talk at all once the band started. We tried fish, meats and ceviches, all of which were fantastic (you can't go wrong). Service was very good, but not great, as they were busy so we'll give them a pass on this. While there are better spots in my opinion, this is a must try if you are in Cartagena for an extended period of time.

It is definitely one of the best for its service, food and ambience.


In my last trip to Cartagena I went twice and both times the food was as incredible, it s a bit expensive but totally worth it. The staff is very friendly they provide great service.

We had the ceviche which is pretty good, the pasta with shrimp and mushrooms is amazing and also tried the potato filled with shrimp also delicious. Pretty much everything was good.

Sometimes they will have live music and people dancing, the place is beautiful and if you seat near the pool you will get the breeze of Cartagena.

I will definitely go back

We were on our way to a reservation elsewhere at 8.00 p.m. when the owner of a store we stepped into suggested Cuzco instead. We found our way there through throngs of people having a raucous saturday night.

They gave us a reserved table on the far side of the pool. We didn't argue. Service was fast and impeccable. Food delicious, live music at other end a bonus. Seemed like all the in folks were there. I liked that. Why not?

This restaurant deserves to be in the top 5. Great Peruvian food and good service. There is a live band that plays salsa, so it makes you feel you are truly in Cartagena. Highly recommended!

This was our second choice and settled here because our first choice was packed. It was simply fantastic. Service was superb and the restaurant is beautiful. Nice band was playing also. Went back again and got different dishes. Everything was great. If I'm ever in Cartagena again I will return.
