Couldn't recommend Boliche highly enough. I tried lots of different restaurants in Carta, but I kept coming back to Boliche! It truly is a cut above the rest. The quality of the food is absolutely marvelous- such a good deal for the price. They really should charge more for their ceviches. I spent a lot of time talking to the... More

Was a bit anxious about eating here. I am not an adventurous seafood eater, and the menu is all seafood. But our amazing waitress helped us order and I really appreciated her help. From the delicious tamarind ceviche to the hot stone langoustine dish, it was an amazing meal to remember.

El Boliche Cebicheria is a hidden gem! Tucked away on a side street, this tiny restaurant serves up tons of unique ceviche and seafood dishes.

Cane here for lunch - I had the hot rock plate and my friend had the empanadas. Absolutely delicious and the preparation/presentation was impeccable. This was an amazing meal, one that would easily cost $100 per person in the U.S. That being said, it was about 65k copa per person which in Colombia is definitely on the high end. In... More

From the outside the restaurant does not look like much but this is a real hidden treasure....don't expect any fancy though. This is a small restaurant but with delicious ceviches, tasteful and very well presented...the best we had so far in Cartagena (beside the one we had at Alma). Small dining room with only 7-8 tables for 25 people maximum.... More

Without being pretentious, this small cevicheria/restaurant combines full attention and superb service in a tiny, hole in the wall locale... that is simply upscale and beautiful. Wonderful, artistic and thoughtful drinks with scrumptious apps... Do stop by

We were thinking to go to this place since we know we were going to go to Cartagena, we searched for reviews for good ceviche there, I mean it was good, but not for the price, the place is very tiny and it is pricy compared to other really good places we went and I sincerely like the others more...

We went there as we read all the great reviews. The service was good and the little room very charming, but the food was only average. The ceviche was missing the kick.

We received a recommendation for this place over La Cevicheria so went very excited and not a lot went well. They took forever to get us drinks. The waiter was totally confused and out of his element considering it's such a small restaurant - he couldn't remember what food went to which table. They were out of the crab empanadas,... More

If you are in cartagena, this place has be visited. The ceviches offered in this place are very creative. The quality could not be better. It is definitely not easy to describe how good the ceviches were. Try them your self!!! Services was very good even though I went with a group of 12 people. Off course is not super... More
