Had read about this restaurant and seen prior good reviews, so gave it a try with a group of 9 adults and children. We went for lunch when it was quiet and were quickly seated. Food overall was delicious. Ambiance was nice. Would highly recommend.

You have to make your reservation one night before. They don't receive calls before they open, or you could do it here on TripAd

Excellent lunch on a Wednesday. Smart restaurant but pretty quiet and relaxed at this time of day. High quality food, good service and value when compared to similar restaurants in Cartagena serving food like this.

To visit this restaurant it is definitely better if you have a reservation. The food was superb and well worth visiting this restaurant. As an appetizer I would certainly recommend the braised octopus. Delicious The oxtail as a main dish was also very good.

Very disappointed by this place after reading all the good reviews. The food is not bad but nothing exceptional. The service is appalling.
