Probably not the best idea to order grilled fish for lunch at an italian joint, but it's Cartagena so I thought most places would know how to cook fish. i got the grilled mixed fish plate it was overcooked beyond recognition...hard, rubbery and practically inedible. My partners had risotto which they said was average...the caprese salad also was very mediocre,... More

Excellent food, charming and authentic atmosphere, well priced and unpretentious. Best dinner I had in Cartagena during my one week stay.

We were wandering the charming streets of the old city for the fourth time, loving it here, and stumbled upon La Bruschetta. What a treat the steak was! As tender and delicious as we can recall. Every. Melt in your mouth memorably fine. One of us just had a good salad with it, the other amazingly good fries. The steak... More

Went there with my mom. To begin with, we waited for around 40' to get our orders (milanese chicken with coconut rice for both), that were pretty simple ones. Once the dishes arrived, I noticed a SPIDER (yes, a spider) on the top of my coconut rice. I couldn't even finish the water I had on the table. The good... More

Visited Cartagena last December and after a whole morning of exploring the wonderful old city my wife and I wanted lunch. There were many options but unfortunately the locals found it difficult to convert dollars to Bs. Several of the restaurants quoted us exorbitant prices. La Bruschetta was quite the opposite. Apart from being English friendly they were polite and... More

I was walking around with my wife for a place to lunch and we found this restaurant. The waiter at the entrance was nice with us and offer us a very nice table close to the window to see the crowd on the street. My wife ordered a glass of white wine and myself a beer. She ordered the risotto... More

Terrible food. Unfriendly service. Incredibly expensive for what it is. Our bill was 85,000 COP and we left almost everything uneaten after one horrible bite. Please just don't go!

I usually put a bad restaurant down to experience but this was so awful ... In summary. 1- Revolting food. 2- Service? What service? 3- Aggressive response. 4- Expensive Some "highlights". - fruit juice sent back twice as undrinkable - nevertheless ended up on the bill. - both main courses were barely edible. - my filet mignion was "soggy" and...
