I have to say this restaurant was amazing. We were lucky that the second time around, although we had no reservations, they were so kind to take us in. The chef was working the floor making sure everything was on point. Must order the lobster cooked in butter for appetizer and the chuleton (grilled pork chop). After many days of... More

Totally loved every aspect of our visit to Don Juan. My husband and I couldn't get into Maria, so we reserved next door at Don Juan. As soon as we walked in, the decor delighted us with its bright and modern colors. The staff was immediately on hand with menus, water, taking drink orders, etc. We ordered an assortment of... More

Friends and I weren't able to get in at Maria, so we went next door to Don Juan—and we're happy we did! We shared a few plates at the server's recommendation, and enjoyed everything we had. Nothing particularly memorable but overall a good meal and priced well.

We ate here twice during our week+ vacation in Cartagena. We enjoyed both of our meals. The service was great. It is a more expensive restaurant, in Columbia terms, but coming from New York it was still very affordable. I recommend making a reservation.

Very good food and dining experience in a casual chic setting. I would recommend it over other fine dining choices in Cartagena. They have two seatings a night and reservations are definitely recommended. My husband had the chicken, which he said was the best he has ever had. Everything that we ordered from appetizers to entrees to dessert was simply... More

The food was ok...the best thing was the fresh bread sooo...anyhow it's more pomp & circumstance than substance...much better options nearby for the price.

Honestly the best dinner we had in Cartagena. Fast service, excellent food, tables are spaced apart so you are comfortable. Great place!

As we wandered the streets of Cartagena on Christmas Day, we spotted this little restaurant and popped in and were seated immediately. Little did we know we were in one of Cartagena's most exclusive, hard-to-book dining stars. We had a lovely time, great service, delicious food and great ambience. Luck was with us...and we left happy. Merry Christmas!
