This was my husbands favorite ceviche in Cartagena. The environment felt authentic and local. As a vegetarian, there weren't many options for me. Cappuccino was great.

I went here as I've been on a ceviche rampage in Cartagena - and this place sounded like it was a cut above. But what I found out was that while it's good food, it's completely over priced. You don't need to pay this much for ceviche! As another reviewer mentioned on here, it just seems like an exercise in... More

It's called a cevicheria but be sure to come for the empanadas. We're eating our second round as we write this review. Best ever.

We arrived and was seated immediately (730pm). We were asked if we can complete our dinner by 830pm because there was a reservation at that time. We agreed. We also asked what in the menu is quick to serve. Our waitress gave us some suggestions and we our ordered. In the mean time, 3 other groups came in. They ordered... More

Absolutely the best ceviche in town! It's not the cheapest, but definitely worth your money. Delicious ceviches and the empanadas are the best I've tried so far. It's a cute, little restaurant with great service and perfectly located. Definitely worth a must visit when you're in town!

First came to El Boliche two years on our first trip. Had one of the best ceviches I've ever had then, an untraditional creamy style. I was afraid such a creative spot would not last here. Well, two years later happy to find the restaurant has expanded its seating and more crowded than before. The ceviche in tamarind broth may... More

I have to agree with many other reviews that the Ceviche was good quality and rich in flavors...BUT Visited El Boliche after a recommendation from a family member, I don't regret the service or the small uncomfortable setting or the huge plates with a minimal portion of food...I regret didn't review the prices before sitting! Is not about money is... More

Really is the best ceviche! Flavors are unique and tastes like a 5-star chef made it. Had to come back here a second night. Compared to La Cevicheria (the one Bourdain went to), this one was hands down better! A must go in Cartagena. Try to make a reservation ahead of time since it really is not to be missed.... More

Wonderful food - creative and fresh plus a very friendly staff. You won't be disappointed. It was our first night in Cartagena and we are wondering if all the restaurants are this good?
