While walking down the street trying to find some decent food my family came across this restaurant. After walking in and being greeted by the warm owner and staff, we sat down to a wonderful meal. Food was the best we have had in Cartagena and the price and portion size were very fair. Would highly recommend this place and... More

We were a group of 9 persons, including 4 children and it was difficult to find a nice place that adjust to our requirements. Even though it is a small place, they made the necessary arrangements to accommodate us for lunch. The service was very friendly, the food was great and abundant, they really made an effort to bring a... More

The food is amazing. Big portions and relatively cheap. The woman who runs the restaurant (manager or owner) is very nice and the service is great.

This place was recommended to us by the folks at Swikar Candy shop. It is just off of Plaza Santa Domingo. We were lucky to get a table for 6 since it is a small restaurant and they do not rush you. The menu is a combination of Colombian specials and international cuisine. We are vegetarians (some of us eat... More

The service here is excellent. Most places we've gone in Cartagena have been abysmal but who would have thought to get our drink orders started while we continue to order our meals? Not only was the service excellent but the food was delicious with authentic local food and portions that satisfy American hungry tummies.

First off, it's a 4.5 rating. We walked into this one around lunch without any research. It looked simple and family oriented. Started with a glass of wine and a wake you up, fresh lemonade. Our order was the house salad loaded with shrimp, a beef something with a fried egg on top and I got the red snapper which... More

I'm always so confused by the ratings on TA! Anyway ... we came here because we heard they had Arroz con Coco, which was a dish we wanted to try. Wouldn't you know they were out of it! We stayed anyway - cute place, cozy, friendly service. I had boiled shrimp, which were good but that's a pretty basic dish.... More

Best Find In Town, visited the restaurant and we tried a few things, everything was excellent, I wouldn't say Michelin Rated Type, but pretty close. Price is fair and the food is amazing, I definitely recommend it.
