Seems casual in terms of décor but the food is outstanding! Best meal we had in Cartagena. No outdoor dining. No dress code apparent. Lobster is out of this world.

The menu looked very ambitious and interesting. Also price was reasonable and that was the reason we went for dinner on our last day in Cartegena. The restaurant opened at 7:30 pm. We showed up at 7:45pm and we were told that there was nothing available without a reservation. However we were asked to wait 10-15 minutes in case some... More

The service and food was good. I do not understand why reservation is important. Dessert take up to 20 mins because everything is fresh and prepared. We didnt mind the wait. The decor is very inviting and cute.

The dishes preparation is too basic. The display is poor and for some dishes not appealing at all. My wife ordered shrimps and the were tiny (specially to be at the Caribbean). My wife said my risotto is 10X better... the service was horrible. They almost throw the dishes at you. The atmosphere is pretty cool though. Totally overrated!

Had dinner here and expected it to be good but it was just ok. The service was pretty bad I have to admit. I ordered the ravioli as an appetizer it was good but they brought it out in less than five minutes the sauce was cold. The salmon sashimi was OK. Then I ordered the fish in green sauce... More

Food is good without being exceptional or amazing. The Chef takes no risks serving good portions, nicely prepared. Restaurant is nicely decorated and staff is courteous. So, I'll recommend the place, just don't expect something incredibly fantastic as others have written for this place Lunch for two, sharing a starter and desert and each having an entrée with a bottle...

Their menu selection is small but really good. Ask the chef to recommend appetizers to share. You will be surprised. For main dish go for their seafood although they have good lamb, porch and veal. Very nice atmosphere mainly in the evenings. Their service is average

I went to Don Juan for lunch with my family and we were all highly impressed! We ordered Colita de langosta (lobster tail) langostinos (prawns) and garlic crabs for appetizers everything was extremely flavorful and fresh! What a delightful place. Service is impeccable and great atmosphere! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Thank Mmejia17
