You don't come here for the food or so-so drinks. It's the views that make it amazing, romantic. This place is definitely full of tourists, nationalities of all types ... who cares? It's the view, the atmosphere.

This was definitely one of the most beautiful places I have visited in Colombia so far. Didn't try the food - just had a couple of wines here with my friend overlooking the whole city / harbour - it's just magic. Definitely visit at sunset if you can. Had a bit of an Ibiza vibe - personally I loved the... More

Went to have a cocktail and view the sunset at Cafe Del Mar. It was crowded and the music was loud via a DJ. Service was slow.

The place gets packed before sunset and for a good reason, it's beautiful to watch the sun go down on top of the famous colonial wall that once fortified the city. However, prices are very high, and food and drinks are both below average in quality and quantity. So go there for a beer or two and then head back... More

great view, sea breeze, music. lots of tourists. it took too long to get a drink (we were ignored at the bar and the server never made it to our table) so we just enjoyed the view for a while then moved on. but it is a nice place to stop by and get a couple photos.

It was located on top of the wall and an amazing view towards the ocean. The place is fairly large and can sit over 300 people easily. It's is a nice place to view the sunset as a couple or a group of people. We were there at night for a drink on a Thursday. They play good dance music... More
