Amazing food - mostly Caribbean/ Seafood, but a nice wide selection in the menu. Great taste and quality. Quick, courteous service and very nice atmosphere in a centric location. A must in Cartagena.

My group dined at all four travelers choice award restaurants in Cartagena and we liked Don Juan the best. Best overall ambience and more food choices then the others. I had the ribeye steak which was pricy but excellent.

It is essential to book. This restaurant runs two sittings, but don't let that put you off. We also nearly didn't go here, because we were not convinced by the look of it through the window. But we are really glad we did. The service is very slick and professional. Food was VERY good. And a nice atmosphere as well.... More

The place is very sophisticated and the food is amazing. This place is good to visit with friends or your girlfriend. It is expensive but it worth it for the tasting experience.

Deliciuos food, but only for those like to spend half of eternity waiting. I've been at Don Juan to a Business dinner. You need to make a reservation to avoid a large time waiting for a table, regarding they are always full and the service seems "lazy". The attendents speaks english and there is a english menu as well. The... More

This upscale restaurant looked and fell like a trendy restaurant in Hollywood California. We felt the food was above average but lacked the Colombian heart of other top eateries in town. We were disappointed in the shrimp dish and ribeye but the seafood salad was good. No live music .

There are 2 sittings for dinner : 730pm & 845pm. You are reminded not to be late and you have to leave by 930pm. Therefore everyone rushes in, everyone gives their order, everyone gets their meals at the same time: all a bit too pedestrian and therefore you don't feel as though you can relax. The food was very good... More

We arrived without a reservation and had to wait 45 minutes for a table. In the meantime my partner had a cocktail and I had a glass of wine, despite the fact that single glasses were not on the list. As a previous guest mentioned, the octopus is outstanding. The mains were quite good and dessert (brioche with chocolate ice... More

Unfriendly staf. Very good food and desserts. Taste is great. Seating is fine. Wines only per bottle and not that good. Reserve on a busy night or be there at 7.30 pm when it opens. Value for money.
