Well, the food is good but not remarkable as well as the atmosphere and service. The problem is that the price is the same as the other (exceptional) restaurants in Cartagena.

Perfect date restaurant. Ask to sit upstairs on the terrace. It is nice and quiet and in a darker part of the old city where you can actually see a decent amount of stars.

We stopped by this restaurant because it looked nice from the outside and the menu was more reasonably priced than Gioia next door. We ordered a Mediterranean salad thinking it would have a lot of greens. It turned out to be mostly mozzarella, tomatoes and avocado and not very much of that for the price. Then we each ordered red... More

The food was very good and service attentive. Regrettably the decoration reminded me of a discarded train station. Please put a little bit more soul into the atmosphere and it will become a 100% recommednation.

Had dinner twice at Nara. Their service was impeccable; prompt, professional, polite, knowledgeable, friendly. The restaurant overcame all my expectations! The food was fantastic, the value of the meal I also thought was very good indeed. Going deeper the food was..... simply yummmmmmy.... The prices were normal, and it's great value for money too. If your staying in Cartagena, So... More

There was excellent respect for the ingredients and balancing flavors within the dinner. The sea bass was cooked perfectively in several inventive variations on the menu Loved it, will be back.
