“Lovely meal - do try it”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We tried this place after seeing a review on Tripadvisor and we were really glad we did. The restaurant has two halves - an indoor seating area on one side of the street and a garden seating area on the other. We visited in February, but chose to sit in the garden under a heater and it was lovely to be able to eat outside. The food was excellent - my partner had a superb steak and I had tuna which was beautifully cooked (just seared, rather than horribly over done). We also shared a fantastic chocolate brownie. The staff were really helpful and made us feel really welcome. Just a tip - it's worth taking a phrase book with you if you don't speak much Spanish as the menu is only in Spanish and the staff had very little English. It's fun to translate as you go!

“Lovely Surprise”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We choose this Restaurant as it was open on a Monday. Don't turn up too early all Spanish come in after 9pm. We where a little unsure to start with as we arrived alittle early and restaurant seemed quiet , however , even being Monday started filling up after 9pm. We choose to have a tapas evening and it was lovely particularly liked the scramble egg with anchovies on and the mini burgers, they even made us a special tomato salad. Waiting staff very helpful even if they could not speak much English. Good local wine for about 12 Euro's . We had a lovely evening sat in garden.

“Amazing Restaurant”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

We found this restaurant wandering around the streets in Cartagena and we were instantly seduced by its charming garden. The food revealed itself amazing, the atmosphere was charming and the staff very friendly and helpful. A definite must if you are in the city, excellent value for money and if you feel like, let the staff delight you with their spiced spirits after lunch, excellent!
