We were curious to see how a famous Colombian fashion designer would manage a restaurant. We now know. Style over substance, presentation over content, and high prices for normal food. Stylish location, friendly staff, but over priced for what is offered.

And it might be one of the best places we have visited, ever. Italian cuisine and quite a good one - fine products, well prepared. Good wine list and reasonable prices. Very special atmosphere - new architectural forms incorporated in the old colonial house, which...More

Fantastic menu even better food. I never thought I'd eat at an Italian restaurant in Cartagena! From start to finish a perfect memoralbe meal. The salad was top notch to a perfect risotto. Highly recommend.

We heard great things about this restaurant. The reason that I am giving it an average is because I don't think that it was very good. If I had a choice I would classify it as good. Had risotto and it was good but not...More

We had an excellent italian meal at Vera. Vera is inside the beautiful Tcherassi boutique hotel, make sure you sit in the outside courtyeard much nicer than inside. The food was very good and so was the service.

The restaurant is really beautiful, set in the courtyard of a very nice hotel in downtown. We had the ravioli and the risotto, and they were both very nice. Great dinner experience!

The decor is gorgeous - service excellent. I had snapper which was perfect. One guest had the beef which though served medium rare as requested was tough. Perhaps beef is not the thing to order here in Cartagena as we keep coming across this problem....More

Chef Daniel Castano of Bogota’s Emilia Romagna restaurant brings his authentic Italian coastal cuisine to VERA, a 50-seat restaurant and lounge set within The Tcherassi Hotel’s historic colonial mansion and interior lush garden. Indoors, the restored, original 250 year old stone wall stretches from the imported Australian floor up to the distinuished wood ceiling and beams made from rescued Colombian Guayacan and Ceiba. Modern mirrors adorn the backlit wall in a unique contrast that reflects the activity throughout the space and brings the outside in with vivid reflections of the lush garden waiting outside. Dress Code is casual elegant; men have to wear long trousers and collar shirt
