Been here 4 times now and always take our visitors to this restaurant when in Cartagena. It is a MUST, I promise you will not be disappointed by the service, the food, the wine, the staff and the location. I would compare this restaurant with some of the nicest restaurants in London and you certainly wont be paying London prices.

Our friend recommended this gem of a restaurant to us for a special birthday lunch and it did not disappoint! Beautiful food, an incredible setting - our room had once served as a water tank for the nearby roman amphitheatre - and attentive staff. The owner's pride in his restaurant and the workmanship throughout shone through. A fantastic afternoon x

Based on a tip from the hotel we visited this restaurant in november 2016. A really nice meal! Both the service and the food was very good. No discussion when we sent the first wine bootle back.

Came here with high expectations as we read it was no 2 restaurant in Cartagena. However we were disappointed as we have eaten better elsewhere. The bacon salad starter had lots of fatty pieces which were not pleasant. The main courses came on cold plates ( I know this happens a lot in Spain but in a restaurant of this... More

My third visit to this restaurant and again it did not disappoint. Visited with 8 friends to celebrate a special birthday and everyone was impressed.
