This is a classy, unpretentious, really nice where the locals go. We were staying close by (luckily) and we tried the Lobster, we tried the Robalo, we tried the Lobster again a different way and we were very happy! This is not a place in a rush although we did ask for a quick meal once and they obliged us... More

Very expensive. Good food after 3 hours waiting for it. Finished 3 types of beer and poor service due to lack of personnel

For our last evening in the city we chose this restaurant which was recommended by a family member who lives here. I ordered the filet minon. It came with a creamy mushroom sauce wrapped in bacon. So good I wanted to lick the plate. The hubby ordered the cazuela which is like gumbo with a mixture of seafood. The also... More

While this place is expensive for the average day it's quite perfect for the special occasion. Went with a large group and had a variety of food like crab claws, mushroom soup, many lobster style which allowed is to try many flavors.

Maybe it was partially my mistake for ordering very large (3+ lb ) lobsters, but they weren't quite as tasty as my previous order of 2 lb lobsters in February. I don't know how they remain in business given the paucity of customers during both of my visits. Still a very good value.

So the reviews online are amazing, every other cab driver in Cartagena recommends this place. I was very excited about all the hype. I visited on Sunday afternoon. I enter the grand house hoping greatly to have my tinny mind blown! What I received was an indifferent welcome, from unmotivated waiters. I found myself sat in an empty restaurant, with... More

Went here for the lobster and were not disappointed. Huge lobsters, wonderful bisque, complementary shrimp appetizer, good garlic bread and fabulous kind of coconut pie we had never had before. Charming old home. Excellent service.

Excellent lobster. My wife had the tamarindo which was perfectly cooked and even shelled for tidy eating. I indulged in the seafood platter which was just a lot of excellent seafood. Can't pick a favourite.
