    The place was great ceviches were delicious.
    Cozy place with an explosion of flavor on every single plate they sell. The place has a great vibe and Ever was a great waiter who helped us all the way and recommended most of the place we try. If you really thinking of coming to cartagena anytime soon, add this to your bucket list. YUMMY 😋

    Ceviche!
    Great ceviches here. The palenquero ceviche with a touch of sesame was delicious and our waiter Orlando gave us great service and great advice. Small place with great vibe as well.

    Delicious Ceviche!
    Delicious ceviche - both the fish and the vegetarian versions. They even helped us find an alternative to raw fish when a member of our party couldnt eat raw. Thanks to Orlando, Jose Quiros, and chef Carlos for making our time so lovely.

    Best ceviche I have had so far in NYC and Colombia.
    Visited this location with my best friend while visiting Cartagena Colombia. I have recently been obsessed with ceviche. And today’s meal exceed my expectation 100%. One of the best. We ordered the Rumbero ceviche, Mareta ceviche, and octopus and shrimp ceviche. Best chef and service with Carlos Alberto and his fellow coworkers. Definitely recommend this place to all who visit Cartagena.

    Ceviche y Coronas in Cartagena. Classico!
    Superb ceviche and a bucket of Coronas after walking the entire Old City couldn’t have been better. Alvaro Cuadro provided excellent service with a smile. Sit at one of the two tables outdoors on the balcony on the second floor if you can. Yes, it is hot, but the cerveza is cold!
