“Great desserts”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Awesome dessert crepes for very reasonable prices (5-8k COP). Main meal crepes seemed a bit expensive compared t the desserts (15-25k). Amazing restaurant interior, all original beams. Ice cold air con which is a must in cartagena. Service was slow and the waitresses all seemed bored. Half our group got our drinks and the other half were left waiting. I could see the drinks sitting on the counter for 10mins while a group of 5 waitresses stood around chatting. According to my Colombian friends this seems to be common on the coast, the work ethic is a lot more relaxed (which comes across as just not caring). Tried to order a take away ice cream as we left and it was all too hard for the girl. We would have to wait for all the restaurant orders to be made first.

“Good food, beautiful building, average service”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We checked this place out after reading all the great Tripadvisor reviews on it, but ended up leaving with mixed emotions.

The food was definitely very nice - both went for one of the mains in the large bread bowls. Very tasty. The Mont Blanc crepe for dessert was also a highlight.

Plus the building itself was spectacular - a great, revamped old building in the heart of the old town with fantastic views from the roof terrace.

However, the service really let them down. We had a couple of waitresses dealing with us and they were both unfriendly verging on rude. They were quite strange at times - it's certainly the first time I've been given a straw with a glass of red wine!

“One of the best Colombian Restaurants”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Even though they don't specialize in Colombian cuisine, every single dish there is amazing! You can't ask for a better benefit-cost ratio, the atmosphere is great and prices are very low! Love the Portofino salad which goes for around 20.000 and is huge! Or the sicilian pita ~ 12.000. Don't leave without having dessert (4.000-10.000)

“Great place for veggies!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Crepes & Waffles is our standby while traveling in Colombia. We come here when we crave fresh veggies and when we need a break from Colombian food. We've dined at the old town location in Cartagena as well as in Medellin. The food is consistently fresh, healthy and tasty. We love the savory veggies crepes, dessert crepes and salads.

“Great place to cool down over a tasty lunch in Cartagena”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I ate here a couple of times because I loved the salad bar and good range of veggie crepes. The large wine portions are a bonus!
