In this restaurant is necessary to have a reservation. It's an expensive restaurant, The food is good but its cost is to much. Yo can find other restaurants in cartagena with better food and less expensive.

Nice restaurant with traditional Colombian sea food and espetacular coconut dessert (mostly the hot pie with ice-cream ). At the historical centre. The restaurant closes at 15 pm
