I had the Ceviche costeño, it was absolutely​ amazing. Spices and flavour to perfection with the addition of mini tamales and dried pineapple made the perfect dish. The staff are young men from Colombia and Venezuela who are eager to learn English and are very polite. Cocktails are phenomenal. They also gave me a super delicious donut for my birthday!... More

While all the in crowd is standing in line at the Cevicheria around the corner, take a refreshing break at this tiny but impeccably managed five-star. On entering you are struck by the calm ambience, reinforced by the zen water wall. The wait staff is attentive, not pushy, and extremely knowledgeable about the food and its preparation. Here you will... More

This restaurant came very highly recommended. It is however, a dining experience, more so than a standard "dinner" restaurant. The food here is best if enjoyed "family style". Do not come here hungry. Rather, visit to sample delicious creations of a master chef and his/her team. The only truly filling item on the menu is the exceptional empanadas. Sample dishes... More

THis place is tiny. Best to make a reservation. The menu is very refined and gourmet. The menu is limited but varied enough to please everyone. Great service. Nice ambience. The only thing was the super cold A/C!

It just has 3 or 4 tables and very little space, don't go there with large groups. I went there alone, sat close to the outside where I could enjoy a glass of wine and a very unique dish of mixed seafood ceviche

This is a very petite restaurant and a little difficult to find, but well worth the search. The staff is very attentive and helpful, and the sea bass was absolutely the best that I have had in years. Unfortunately my wife was ill when we went out and did not tell me. She was unable to finish her meal. The... More

The waiters are charming and the food light and very distinctive in taste. We loved it - very small and personal in a quiet street but always busy so there are plenty that agree with us!

While Cevicheria is the go-to hot-spot for ceviche in Cartagena, El Boliche is the favorite of connoisseurs. This tiny gem has the most creative ceviches anywhere and you can't go wrong with any of the super fresh seasonally changing creations. Do note * The ceviche here is not cheap but by paying extra you are supporting artisanal fishing practices. Good... More
