This place gets really busy in the evenings, but if you will try it you will not be disappointed. Meals are delicious, staff is correct and the prices are very reasonable. Much better then some higher class restaurants in Cartagena.

We had lunch here twice during our stay in Cartagena and really enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere both times. The food is tasty and plentiful, the kitchen gets the food out fast and the servers know there business. I got the feeling this place has been serving great food for a long time, I loved the vibe.

Visited with a mall group and had excellent food and wine. It didnt look too impresssive when we first arrived but it became full.The food with many dishes we had not tried before was friendly and helpful.freshly prepared and very tasty. The manager and his staff both friendly and helpful.

We were attracted by the look of the place and ate there despite the very pushy waiter at the door who was desperate to attract customers. We both ate fresh fish and the food was good. However the service was painfully slow with the staff showing little interest in the customers.

The whole place and experience lacked charm.

By far the best of the 4 restaurants we tried in Cartagena. Lively, buzzy, informal, but with delicious food especially the paella. Sadly it was closed on Monday 6th, so we weren't able to return there on our last night :-(
