After reading all the reviews about this restaurant Ithought it was going to be mindblowing. The food was average and it certainly was not the best restaurant we ate at in Cartegena. The service was really good. The squid did not taste as fresh as I like. I had filete of fish sauteed in butter and garlic. It was tasty... More

Very expensive compared to other restaurants in cartagena and it´s not a top restaurant. The place seems very famous, but the staff isn´t very helpfull. We´re waiting for some friends and they kept asking if they would come or not, and if we´re going to ordering soon. That was a bit unpleasant. Also, I saw cockroaches in the bathroom, the... More

At lunch time they offer a not pricy menu of the day including soup, very home stile food from Cartagena. If you go for the lunch menu It is a good place for an every day lunch. It won't be an experience you won't forget but is a nice place, with nice food and good service located half way between... More

I was in Cartagena and went here due to the good recommendations in Trip Advisor and it wasn't a disappointment, service was excellent, it is a little place in Casco Antiguo of Cartagena very cozy but was definitely surprised me was the taste of the seafood soup. Extraordinary

Their food is super fresh and delicious. I ate fish and coconut rice, and I ended up being super pleased and full. The price-quantity relation is very well in this place.

Another walk in, PSS just gave us a good vibe as an old school seafood restaurant in the heart of the old city. Our instincts proved us correct... Dubis, the owner of PSS who has an infectious laugh and excellent judgment, steered us through dinner and even got us a good deal on emeralds sold next door! I had the... More

Tourist trap. The food is below average for the price and the staff is not correct: they steal the propona to the tourists and lie about it. It is a shame as it gives a bad image of the city businesses. Avoid this place.

We had been looking for a place to try cazuela de mariscos, and finally got to test it here. It's probably the best we'll ever have!
