Description: Carmen is an exclusive dining experience in Cartagena, Colombia. Inside the walls of this unique space you will find a warm, calm and friendly atmosphere which provides an elegant and modern ambiance and contemporary cuisine with international influences and fresh, Colombian ingredients. The kitchen is the heart and soul of Carmen, enchanting diners with creative dishes from asian-inspired fair to dishes with local influences, always employing some french technique and California's philosophy of seasonality, locality and freshness first. Carmen's menu is based on quality and diversity and has a special focus on seafood. Carmen was founded by a Colombian-American family looking to offer a different dining experience in Colombia. The menu is written in English and Spanish. Carmen is a "can't-miss" stop when coming to Cartagena, Colombia!!

Reviewed December 8, 2013

Great food and inspiring presentation and combination of flavours. Highly recommended. We had our kids with us and the chef made a special off menu simple meal for our 8 year old daughter which was delicious and healthy.
