We originally came for the food (which was amazing) but the rooftop bar made us take a peep. The food was exceptional, I ordered a crab cake burger and was better than I thought it would be. As we came for drinks our bartender Yeider...was so great. He treated us so well for my friends birthday we will definitely be back!More

Great rooftop bar with music perfect for the occasion. Yeider was on top of everything and even gave my friend a surprise birthday drink and cake when we mentioned it was his birthday. Definitely coming back!

Me & my husband came here during our day trip to Cartagena on our honeymoon! Yeidev was our server & went above & beyond to provide an excellent experience. We had the akumal cocktail & the sangria and both were really delicious. Also tried the...chicken lollipops & shrimp tacos for apps & they were both very flavorful and fresh! Vibes are great with chill covers of pop hits, fans, and cute Ambiance on the rooftop. Definitely recommend trying & ask for Yeidev he was the best!!More

If you’re looking for nice spot with awesome vibes, food, drinks and service…Buena Vida is the place! Food was fantastic and so were the drinks! Even better was the service we experienced being waited on by Yeidev. He was attentive, gave great recommendations and just...a super friendly person. I’m already looking forward to coming back here! Pop into Buena Vida…you won’t be disappointed.More

The food here is amazing! We recommend the nachos, shrimp tacos and tropical salad. Maruja was a wonderfully attentive server and very gracious with our poor Spanish. Definitely a great place to visit in Cartagena!
