A must visit in Cartagena! Amazing And authentic local cuisine with a local vibe atmosphere! Highly recommend! Make sure to order the Zarmurinas and tortillitas de camarón! Marilo, our server, provided a great experience.

Lovely location, staff were fine. Was greeted with a strong stone of garlic sauces, and couldn’t be happier. Went for the seafood platter as I love my seafood, they brought out the lobster cracker which raised anticipation, only for it to arrive on a cold...plate, no variety (I was expecting tentacles, whitebait and lobster by this point) with all the flavour left in the kitchen! So disappointing.More

We had a lovely day out in Cartagena with the food here being the highlight. Fresh and delicious sea food platter with a drop or two of vino. Would thoroughly recommend!

Found this place thanks to Trip Advisor and very glad we did! Exactly as described in other reviews, a little out of the way, basic and very clean. However, the food only needs one word - Excellent. Never had a lobster paella before and it...was well worth the 30 min wait that the very helpful waiter advised us of. Would probably help if you had some basic Spanish, although the waiter was very patient with my effort!More

System for reservation does not work. I made a reservation for monday 10 august at 9pm. Booking confirmed. When we arrived at the restaurant (after a trip of 100 km) ... the restaurant was closed.

Good fish, but expensive for what we got. We were there early and ordered from the menu. Afterwards, people came in and chose their fish from the counter.

We went here as a family of four to have lunch based on Tripadvisor reviews but left feeling disappointed. The place itself is very clean with plenty of tables both inside and out. It wasn't very busy (Monday afternoon) but there were a few tables...of Spanish diners enjoying their food. The waiters were friendly and one spoke some English which was very helpful for us. We ordered our drinks which came right away and then ordered our food. Two of us had almost finished our starters before the others were even served. Fair enough but then it happened again with the mains! Two of us had the seafood paella which was ok but a bit on the small side. The other two had the cauldron rice which was way too salty and topped by a fish full of bones. Neither was able to finish their meal due to the saltiness of the rice. The bill was a whopping €90 for a 2 course lunch for four without wine! We so wanted to like this place but the food (both in taste and the speed in which it left the kitchen) and value for money was a bit of a let down. Perhaps the chef was just having an off day.More

Hi Kris Midweek you probably would get a table for lunch without booking - but better to reserve to be safe. At weekends you definitely need to book. If you want to walk, it is about 15 minutes from the cruise terminal... More
