“Perfect location to enjoy a drink and the sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Cafe del Mar has a great location, on top of the wall, with (depending on your luck) a view of the sunset. I wasn't expecting to enjoy Cafe del Mar, but found it so comfortable, that I came back the following evening.

Most of the complaints are valid. It's touristy and the drinks are overpriced (for Colombia). That being said, you're on vacation so just enjoy yourself. Sit down, nurse a single drink, and chat with your partner/friends.

Other reviewers say you can just bring a beer and sit nearby. That's definitely true, but you may be bothered by touts who hang out in that area.

“Delicious cocktails and hazy sunsets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Despite being known for their sweet lounge music and beautiful sunsets, unfortunately ours were too hazy. But with my favourite 'Coco Loco' cocktail this disappointment was quickly overcome :)

“Nice view and that is it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

The restaurant has an awesome location. But, the food here is severely overpriced hot garbage. Drinks are ridiculously expensive.

Dont waste your time. Take a walk on the wall for a view and find somewhere else to eat.

“Stupidly expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

This restaurant is situated right on the wall. Surrounding the restaurant is a lot of open space on the wall that you can bring food and drinks to and have the same views as at this restaurant. This restaurant uses its location to its advantage and really overcharges. Why get a $8 beer when you can bring a $2 beer from the store to the wall next door!

“Beautiful Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

This is a beautiful location to sit and watch the beautiful sunset of Cartagena! It is mostly a tourist place, but it was astounding! The food is very selective and quite expensive as are drinks.
