A fantastic location, nice outdoor sitting on a very cozy and romantic plaza also appropriate for children. The sandwiches’ are average, nothing special. I would say you pay more than you get considering the quality of the food.

This eatery looks OK but the food we had was terrible. Both had felafel, hummus and salad. Well the felafel was 'crucified' it was so overcooked and rock hard. The hummus did not taste of anything and so runny it had been watered down with something. Lastly the salad consisted of three wafer thin pieces of tomato and a pile... More

I was so excited to eat here because, yes, atmosphere is super chill, cute and bohemian vibes in a nice location off a plaza. Whilst my eggplant, cheese and olive pate baguette was pretty nice, i have never waited so long for something so basic. Didn't start off well when we waited 15 minutes for two cokes to be brought...

This is a great little spot if you are trying to avoid tourist traps or are tired of eating in fancy/expensive restaurants during your visit to Cartagena. The coconut lemonade and falafel eggplant sandwich were both delicious. Friendly service, chill atmosphere, good music (they were playing Compay Segundo during our lunch there). Highly recommend.

Low key place with good food, next to a plaza. It only has few tables and they run out of options, so you might be limited, but it is worth trying! Good music as well

The restaurant is nicely located on the corner of place Fernandez de Madrid. We sat outside to enjoy the fresh air, however we were disappointed by the food : the standard pescado/arroz/platano/ensalada was the worst we had in Colombia (frozen fish when the sea is only 100 meters away, dry rice from the microwave...). Price was similar to other places,... More

Ordered a falafel sandwich for lunch. It was served in a pocket pita with various veggies accompanying the falafel. I have had falafel served to me many times in restaurants around the world and no one had managed to ruin it until this place. The falafel was overcooked into hard discs that were barely chewable. The waiter was indifferent to... More

We went to eat in centro and encountered this place. The fish was awesome along with the falafel but the waitress, Danis was really good. She was going all out to keep us happy. Recommended! areangedtravelers.com
