Worst place in Cartagena! They tricked us about getting us a table and let us waiting for 20 minutes! After that, a table was available and they give them to some group that arrive after us

We visited Via Apia in the afternoon and enjoyed cocktails and awesome classic rock. The owner and our server were gracious, friendly and attentive. The drinks were fairly priced and the vibe great. Highly recommended.

This is certainly one of the most interesting tapas bars I have ever been to. The music was mainly hard rock - Guns 'n Roses was playing when we walked in. It has the longest list of drinks I've ever seen in a tapas bar....More
