Since a couple of years ago, I can't just go to Cartagena and not have lunch at least once at this place. The food is great and really typical coast colombian food. By the way, the english translations for some dishes are kind of funny...More

Apparently very popular for typical food from Cartagena. Big plates with ok food. The best where the patacones with the "suero" If you want to feel the authentic feeling this is a place.

I went here with 3 friends last night and was probably the worst dining experience we have had in South America. The most positive thing about the restaurant was the air conditioning. Service was unbelievably slow waiting over 45 minutes for drinks (coke, lemonade and...More
