Enjoyed a lovely lunch in a quiet, cool restaurant with very tasty food and good service. I had the fish of the day, which was a deep-fried whole sea bass and my partner had the sea bass fillet Cartagena-style. Both were superb. With 3 drinks,...More

Lunch was suggested by my guide, and I was not disappointed. Well-prepared and flavorful fish, wonderful veggies, and great ice cream for dessert. One of the nicest meals I had while in Cartagena. Excellent service and a very charming restaurant.

This restaurant is unfortunately very average. We had the ceviche (unfortunately the fish had a fishy taste - meaning it wasn't that fresh). The presentation was nice. We also had a pasta which was ok and a paella like dish. The pictures in the menu...More
