In one word: WOW!!
This place is absolutely beautiful! A true oasis in the scorching heat of the old city. Great food, beverages (think about a really cold beer!) service and decoration. Love it!

I'm usually the type of traveler who likes to walk around a city like Cartagena and just find something that looks good, well I would advise you not to do that in Cartagena because although there are a lot of good restaurants there are also a lot of not so good restaurants. Most of my better meals came from restaurants that were not in the traveler happy plazas, it's hard to resist choosing a restaurant in a plaza because that usually gives such a great ambience but food quality matters too and the plaza restaurants in Cartagena are overpriced for what you get! Try one of the restaurants on the streets leading to the plazas and you will get a much better meal. Porton de Santo Domingo was my last real meal in Colombia before I left and I'm so glad we decided to try a restaurant that was not in a plaza because the food was so so good. The dining room was really romantic and well decorated the service was spectacular, which you don't get everywhere in Colombia. Start with the mushroom appetizer and then have the Cazuela de Mariscos, yum yum.

This place has a great atmosphere, great food, but lousy service, when you go to a fancy place you expect a fancy service, at least, the staff has no praparation, they forget orders, they mix plates, they serve you on the fist side they can.

Also they run out of liquor, rum and kaluha¡¡¡¡¡

This does not mean they are rude, the thing is you can see they ignore the procedures or are un prepared.

Recommended by our nearby hotel, this restaurant did not disappoint. We were told that the restaurant featured Cuban cuisine. As we nave never been to Cuba, I cannot comment upon the authenticity of the menu, except to say that it offered unusual combinations of tastes and textures. Cuban food as offered at home in New York City is decidly different. My chicken entree had a sugary undercurrent. Other entrees also blended sweet with savory. Service was accommodating. And nearby tables filled with local families would indicate that this restaurant is a good venue for special occasions.

Tourist trap style of food in an otherwise very attractive set up right in the city centre. The place is beautiful, the food is not. Expensive, but then all restaurants in Cartagena are expensive, so that was not the biggest issue here
