This is your spot if you are looking for local cuisine in Cartagena. It's a popular place just a few minutes from the old town with years of tradition.

I was very disappointed on my recent visit to Cartagena to find out this great restaurant has closed after many years. A real loss!

This is the place where people from Barranquilla go when they want to taste their real food. The place is very simple, but they offer an endless variety of typical food at really convenient prices. The prices are published on the wall. I liked fresh juices made of Zapote and Corozo (unique fruits). I would recommend fried pork, and "Bollos"... More

The Chicharon, although crispy and well... More

I had the opportunity to visit Narcobollo for breakfast during my recent visit to Cartagena. The food was fresh and very tasty. We had arepas de huevos, empanadas con queso, carimanolas con carne and bollo with sweet potato. It was all excellent. The mango juice was amazing. Make sure you visit if you're in Cartagena.
