I liked Pulpo Paul. The interior makes you feel under the sea, like in a submarine. The food is good. I had the carbonara salmon, which is a pasta carbonara with pieces of salmon on top. The pasta was well cooked, the sauce was on...More

Business linch, not my first visit, and they are able to keep the standard. The prices are really affordable and looking for international standards cheap. Isn’t a fancy restaurant but you will have a good cost x benefit out of.

I've had the good fortune to eat here several times. I always get some type of ceviche and it is always great! Excellent service. I recommend this place anytime you can!

I ordered the Robalo (a local fish) and spent the next 2 days in bed sick. I could smell the "old" oil that was used to cook the fish.The meal was inedible and the proprietor never once offered to make the situation right.

Isn't exactly at a beautiful place, the mall is kind of little depressing, but if you are around no question is a good choice. The sea food well prepared looks fresh and tasty, and extremely affordable $40 for 3, no alcohol.

Pulpo Paul’s menu is inspired by the happiness of the Barranquilleros, in the flavors of traditional food and dishes but this time paying homage to the immigrants of the Mediterranean. This fusion of flavors alludes to the beach, to sabanilla, to the store on the corner, to the chiringuito, to the hammock, to the fishmongers, to the patacón, the tamarind, the coconut, the mojarra, the corozo, mixed with flavors and ingredients that have crossed the Atlantic Ocean to stay.
