Sold to us as 'the' place to be but nothing special. Great view, but the view is readily accessible from the old town walls either side. First round of cocktails (mojito, mai thai and cafe del mar) were so-so, probably due to the fact they not made with fresh ingredients. Took a risk and had a pina colada which was much better. Cocktails are around $10 each.

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.

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 :)

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.

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!
