The place is charming and beautiful but that's it. The food is average and extremely overpriced. There are far better options (and equally fancy) in the old city for half the price.

This is not a "cantina" style italian restaurant. It is higher end with delicate dishes. Nice atmosphere and nice decor. I thought the service was very average for this type of restaurant. Our waiter didn't explain much clearly seeing that some things we did not...More

We stumbled upon Restaurante Vera - and how lucky we were. I think the cuisine is nouveau Italian - and it was certainly one of our better dinners in Cartagena. Make sure to request to be seated in the air-conditioned room. Waiter Edwin Vasquez is...More

We were curious to see how a famous Colombian fashion designer would manage a restaurant. We now know. Style over substance, presentation over content, and high prices for normal food. Stylish location, friendly staff, but over priced for what is offered.

And it might be one of the best places we have visited, ever. Italian cuisine and quite a good one - fine products, well prepared. Good wine list and reasonable prices. Very special atmosphere - new architectural forms incorporated in the old colonial house, which...More

Fantastic menu even better food. I never thought I'd eat at an Italian restaurant in Cartagena! From start to finish a perfect memoralbe meal. The salad was top notch to a perfect risotto. Highly recommend.

We had an excellent italian meal at Vera. Vera is inside the beautiful Tcherassi boutique hotel, make sure you sit in the outside courtyeard much nicer than inside. The food was very good and so was the service.

Chef Daniel Castano of Bogota’s Emilia Romagna restaurant brings his authentic Italian coastal cuisine to VERA, a 50-seat restaurant and lounge set within The Tcherassi Hotel’s historic colonial mansion and interior lush garden. Indoors, the restored, original 250 year old stone wall stretches from the imported Australian floor up to the distinuished wood ceiling and beams made from rescued Colombian Guayacan and Ceiba. Modern mirrors adorn the backlit wall in a unique contrast that reflects the activity throughout the space and brings the outside in with vivid reflections of the lush garden waiting outside. Dress Code is casual elegant; men have to wear long trousers and collar shirt
