Best meal we had. Tiny restaurant near Santo Domingo with 5 tables. Probably best for lunch as not a charming interior. We had the freshest seafood on the trip. Everything was delicious.

In one word: WOW!! This place is absolutely beautiful! A true oasis in the scorching heat of the old city. Great food, beverages (think about a really cold beer!) service and decoration. Love it!

I'm usually the type of traveler who likes to walk around a city like Cartagena and just find something that looks good, well I would advise you not to do that in Cartagena because although there are a lot of good restaurants there are also a lot of not so good restaurants. Most of my better meals came from restaurants... More

This place has a great atmosphere, great food, but lousy service, when you go to a fancy place you expect a fancy service, at least, the staff has no praparation, they forget orders, they mix plates, they serve you on the fist side they can. Also they run out of liquor, rum and kaluha¡¡¡¡¡ This does not mean they are... More

Recommended by our nearby hotel, this restaurant did not disappoint. We were told that the restaurant featured Cuban cuisine. As we nave never been to Cuba, I cannot comment upon the authenticity of the menu, except to say that it offered unusual combinations of tastes and textures. Cuban food as offered at home in New York City is decidly different.... More

Tourist trap style of food in an otherwise very attractive set up right in the city centre. The place is beautiful, the food is not. Expensive, but then all restaurants in Cartagena are expensive, so that was not the biggest issue here

I agree the food is ok. This is coming from a chef. The live music and lovely courtyard, however, make this a lovely place to spend part of an evening.

I'm not sure how people can say this place isn't, at the very least, very good. I had one of the best soups of my life for the princely sum of USD $4 followed by an exceptional beef dish with potato and vegetables. My girlfriend had chicken for starter which she really enjoyed, but she wasn't overly enthused with her... More

Place had no ambience. Service was just ok ( they only had one other table to take care of ). Appetizers and entree tasted good but it was so small that my husband and I had to stop by a pizza place near by because we were still hungry.

NOTE: This restaurant is in Cartagena COLOMBIA, not Chile. We intended to go to Porton San Sebastian but mistakenly went to this place -- both are on Calle Santo Domingo, but San Sebastian is on the part that runs perpendicular to the main part of the street, and we didn't see it until after we'd eaten at this place.
