Beautiful dining patio, service excellent but pasta just not that good compared to other places. We loved sitting outside but it is not one of the best restaurants in Cartagena

Restaurant is an 16 century gun powder warehouse. If night is not as war you can eat at fresco in the back patio. Food is good, not memorable. Service, as in most of Cartagena , is excellent and friendly.

This is one of Cartagena's well kept secret. The owner has given the place a nice feel and has made sure the food matches it. They are revamping the restaurant but that only adds to the experience.

I requested a response to my letter and complaint. As I expected I did not get a reply. This restaurant does not value their customers or reputation.

The most charming and special of them all. I can guarantee you'll enjoy this beautiful place, an old gunpowder factory. Good taste is everywhere, service is excellent as well as the food.

Nicely located right next to the wall and close to Santo Domingo and offers great ambiance, unfortunately, food is nothing special. For entry, we asked for a lobster croquettes and they were oily and flat-tasted. Eggplant fettucini and fish (Mero) were good but not mind-blowing.

Plaza des Armas has a lovely location in a historic inner courtyard in Old Cartagena. The menu is primarily Italian, but,as we discovered, not just "typical" Italian - we enjoyed our best meal in Cartagena - thanks to the recommendations of our delightful waiter (who...More
