We had a wonderful evening in this beautiful restaurant. The steak was cooked to perfection and the wine list very tasty and reasonable. Our waiter, Rodrigo, was very helpful and patient with our limited Spanish (he spoke very good English but we wanted to practice) and helped us to have a relaxing and highly enjoyable evening.

Great location, this place has a lot of character. Great services, English menu and English speaking personnall. We've ordered some wine, grilled chicken and a filet mignon. The filets huge and tasted great. It's not a cheap place to eat, expect a bill of 100.000 pesos for 2 persons, main course and 2 drinks. But it's a great way to... More

Basic restaurant upon entering. Waiter was polite but overall service was slow. We were the only customers in the restaurant and a party of three. Placed an order of pork loin but was told they were out. Had to order chicken. Menu is very basic and limited with steep prices. Ordered chicken ( no sauce at all) and half the... More

One of the best meals we had in Colombia. The meat (both beef and chicken) were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.

This small restaurant was so unappealing, we did not even sit down for a drink. (There was no bar, so we could not even if we wanted to)

Cartagena is a hot and humid place so it is quite possible that you may end up feeling tired and hangry (actual word) at the end of the day. My girlfriend and I were searching for something cheap to eat and get back to out hotel when we stumbled upon Gaucha, which is not cheap. However, for the extra money... More

Since we entered to the restaurant, we asked for a special dish they had. They didn't have it, ok. The menu is too short I think they have about 6 dishes and they didn't have 3, one of them "Filet Mignon". It was Saturday night and they didn't have 3 dishes?
