We went to La Cevicheria twice on our visit to Cartagena. Yeah, yeah, we watched the Anthony Bourdain segment on Cartagena and that was definitely a reason we first tried it, but we came back because it was really delicious!
The restaurant is bright, full of bright blues and eclectic art on the wall. Its a small place and it might take reservations, but we arrived around 7/7.30 PM in the low season and had no problem getting a seat.
The menu includes a lot of shellfish, which we don't each, so it narrowed our choices quite a bit. We tried the cocktail of fish Ceviche (coconut and lime - amazing!) and had the Peruvian Fish Ceviche which came with a mashed sweet potato, two big plantain chips smothered in guacamole, and salad. Really tasty.
We also had their house desert which was cheese covered in guava sauce which we really loved.
This is what I will say, very delicious. You don't need to each get one main, get an appetizer and get one main dish. That will keep the cost down a little. The cocktails were good, but the Coconut Lemonade might have been better so stick with that. We were definitely wozered by how expensive Cartagena felt and once we started sharing more, we felt better about costs. We wish we could have tried more homey places, but, the heat was getting to us.
Because so many restaurants were so expensive, we opted to return here because we knew it was a good value for our money and not something we could eat very often in DC!
