Very busy during the sunset, this restaurant has some good drinks, but there aren't enough waiters for everybody, so besides the staff being amiable, the service is slow. The wind is another factor that has made the experience not so good. Don't go with skirts.

Cocktails are a bit expensive compared to the city average but totally worth it. Lounge atmosphere and great music. Nice sunset

I love the sunset - so this restaurant/cafe was a must for me. Although the food prices were expensive - the food was better than I expected - it was very good/excellent - we had the coconut shrimp, flabee shrimp and pork chop - all good! The sunset was spectacular. I give it a 4 rather than a 5 because... More

When you are in Cartagena, nothing compares to a late afternoon walk on the city's surrounding walls. And while you are at it, you will probably end up stopping at this cafe and enjoy an afternoon drink (as they seem not to actually have coffee!). The location and views are splendid. However, it is very hard to get a table,... More

Defenitelvy need more staff, service was mediocre and it was full of people who were sitting there for hours and were almost not consuming.

This place is simply breathtaking! You definitely want to come here for the sunset and throw back a few beers and have some light food! Service was good and the ambiance and vibe is so positive and relaxed.

No doubt Cafe del Mar is the place to be in the afternoon to watch the beautiful sunset or at night to enjoy the great atmosphere, cool live Dj, delicious cocktails and very nice food! Sometimes service can be a little slow be patient!

All I can say is this place is absolutely stunning! It was the highlight of our 10 day trip to Colombia. Maybe it was the weather and exceptional music to go with it, or maybe the drinks were just superb but the vibe here was just incredible. I'm not sure why there are low reviews here. The service was good... More

This is basically like all of the other reviews. Go to Cafe Del Mar. It's the place to be for sunset, you get a choice between white and dark rum mojitos which are strong and delicious, and you've gotta do it once while you're in Cartagena. BUT know: The service is slow and terrible (bring cash to pay, rather than... More

Don't leave old Cartagena city without getting to this hilltop gem. Reasonable prices but the view of the sun set is out of this world.
