In this restaurant is necessary to have a reservation. It's an expensive restaurant, The food is good but its cost is to much. Yo can find other restaurants in cartagena with better food and less expensive.

Nice restaurant with traditional Colombian sea food and espetacular coconut dessert (mostly the hot pie with ice-cream ). At the historical centre. The restaurant closes at 15 pm

This place is recommended all over town and in all the guidebooks. We could only get a table at 7pm when we were made to wait for about 15 minutes to sit down as they weren't really open yet. Staff were pretty surly but atmosphere...More

Food is quite average compared to the delicious cuisine in Cartagena while prices are higher. I only give them an average review because the mojitos were nice.

You can sit at the bar at any time as long as it is not more than two or three people. Other choice would be to get a table and have appetizers. I am sure they would not mind, but it does get busy later in the evening... More
