Great food and ambience. Lots to choose from and great service. It's always busy, but it's worth the short wait for a table. Good location, just off the main core of the old city, but well known.

We chose a table outside and enjoyed very good seafood and cold beer. Nothing luxurious, but worth every penny

We came here as a family 7 years ago and absolutely loved it. Went back today, a little scared that maybe I had built it up over the years and maybe would be disappointed, but was happily wrong; the Colombian cebiche, was absolutely delicious: the mix of shrimp, lemon juice, plantains, avocado, was something I've never experienced before and was...

We lined up about 12:15 for the restaurant to open at 12:30. Totally worth the wait. In fact, we liked it so much that we went back the next day for lunch too. While ceviche is their signature dish, there is a wide assortment of wonderful seafood cooked and raw. You can't go wrong.

Expect to wait at least 30 minutes to experience this place. But it is worth it. Fresh ceviche is good, try their made daily hot sauce.

Best Ceviche in Cartegena!! Nothing else needed to comment. Make sure a reservation is made. The restaurant does not seat many patrons and is very popular, even among locals.

I had the mixed seafood plate that was cooked in a red sauce(Tomato, Wine,herbs) and topped with mozzarella cheese. I ordered a side of coconut rice. I was not a fan of the coconut rice but the seafood in the red sauce was pretty great. The restaurant also has an interesting décor.

This place came recommended from 3 of my friends and of course, Anthony Bourdain. And yup, everyone was right about this place. We didn't have to wait too long to get a table even though it was quite busy. The coconut lime ceviche was so good. I've never had a ceviche with the coconut addition and it was really great....
