Celebrated my birthday and first night in Cartagena at La Vitrola .The food , service ,and music were fantastic . After dinner I asked for reservations for my last night in Cartagena which was to be 5 nights later ... The waiters ,waitresses, and manager were so warm and welcoming on both evenings . The fish was so fresh ,I have to say that I don't recall ever eating octopus that was that fresh . The ceviche was spectacular and the desert was just as great. The waiter suggested a Chilean White Wine and it was mid price on their list and one of the best whites I ever tasted ..in season it is hard to get a reservation on the spot ,so be sure to plan ahead as you wouldn't want to miss this spot .....I will go back both to Cartagena and La Vitrola !!

is the most traditional restaurant in cartagena, the food is ok, a little expensive but a good cost - benefit. Good wines.

Live music, delicious Cuban cuisine & impeccable service. You need a reservation, but get one & enjoy a great evening in one of Cartagena's classiest restaurants.

Fantastic food. Atmosphere was also very good, as well as overall service. My wife and I loved it. Important to make reservations well in advanced - we could only booked for lunch.
