We were staying at a house close to this restaurant, so before heading back, we stopped in La Sandwicheria for an easy lunch after a morning spent exploring the city. It's just off one of Cartagena's energetic squares. Casual atmosphere--just a few tables, including a couple that are outside. We enjoyed our outdoor table, but be aware that if you... More

Strange to see the wildly different reviews of La Sandwicheria, but this was my first time there. All I can say is I had a dinner of chicken in yellow curry with rice, plantains and a slaw-type salad that was delicious, one of the best meals I've had during my week in Colombia. That and a large rum drink for... More

We walked around Centro and San Diego looking for a nice place to have dinner. Comparing prices amongst all the restaurants we saw, 'La Sanwicheria' is definitely one of the cheaper restaurants you will find. It is small and cosy with a chilled out atmosphere and the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The hummus and falafels were a great... More

Cozy little restaurant located in a beautiful small street next to the center of cartagena. They serve really good and big sandwiches, as well as Arabic food. If you're looking for vegetarian food, give a try to the Mediterranean plate (20000 COP) which includes falafel, rice of the day (the ingredients vary depending on the day), hummus and salad. I...

Although we don't speak Spanis (and they don't speak much English) we received a very warm welcome here. We had very tasty hummus and falafel with good pita bread. The (Saturday) night were there, the street was closed of and we sat in the middle of the road. Very nice! Oh, and they have great "jugo's naturals"!

Super slow service and exceptionally rude staff. Mediocre food on a chaotic block with lots of pesty street performers. Not recommended.

A fantastic location, nice outdoor sitting on a very cozy and romantic plaza also appropriate for children. The sandwiches’ are average, nothing special. I would say you pay more than you get considering the quality of the food.

This eatery looks OK but the food we had was terrible. Both had felafel, hummus and salad. Well the felafel was 'crucified' it was so overcooked and rock hard. The hummus did not taste of anything and so runny it had been watered down with something. Lastly the salad consisted of three wafer thin pieces of tomato and a pile... More
