Excellent way to spend a few minutes before Christmas warming up on the beach and pondering the New Year. The food is very good and the venue is perfect with one caveat (in the form of a lot of caveats-selling everything!) There are so many INTENSE beach vendors it is almost unbearable. My ploy worked quite well...I told one vendor... More

My cousin recommended this lovely little fast-food place while on tour of Cartagena. I loved it as it had a great view of the beach and the fish and coconut fish was amazing. I had to try it. It is a fun little place like a Caribbean beach fish and chip place but with Colombian flare. Delicious. Just make sure... More

I've been here many years ago and as soon I get the opportunity to come back I did. The ceviche de mariscos is outstanding, as well the sopa de pescado and La cazuela de mariscos (stew see food). Depend the season of the year you can get a fast service or a slow service, but be patience is so tasty,... More

If you want to try typical dishes with a special taste of Cartagena this is the place to go. But be prepared You will be bombarded by all the street vendors that exist and you need to have a lot of time and patience because the service is very slow. Ask for Banesa she is great with the costumers. Food... More

This place was recommended as "one of the best", well obviously our tour guide has no clue how to differentiate between healthy and not healthy food. The fried fish was ok, but the coconut rice, por favor....that rice was masatudo, and they have the NERVE TO serve that, shame on your cook, went there once, and that was enough for... More

Ciclying along Bocagrande, this was the most busy place. So that is were I headed. I had a simple fish soup and chilled beer. The other dishes also looked tasty, but I had not much time at hand (I thougth - see my review on the massage given by Aida). Nice place for a simple & tasty meal or a... More

This place is right across the Hotel Caribe (the Secret Service Agent's story!!!!) where I stayed. After tasting the food, I was sorry that I discovered this place on the last day of my stay. This place is where the locals lineup and wait to get an empty table which is a good sign. I ordered the grilled fish with... More

Great food in a nice ambiance at the beach in Bocagrande. We have eaten delicious food, Ceviche, and a kind of Paella. The taste was outstanding and the fish really fresh. We will recommend this place .... And of course we will come back !
