You can get some good food in here with a live flamenco show. The prices were just a bit too high, but it can definitely be a good experience... Need to book in advance.

we went to el burlador de sevilla and the food is good not the best one of cartagena. it is a simple restaurant, with flamenco music (really nice) tipical from spain. people who work there are very educated and polite. the sangria (white wine) is very good. it is not a cheap restaurant.

My husband and I came to Cartagena on our honeymoon and decided to eat at El Burlador based on its reviews. We were not disappointed! Our server was excellent, and made recommendations based on the wine we chose. The octopus with chimichurri was unreal! We also had paella and dessert. The atmosphere is very romantic, perfect for a date night!

The food is good, nice quality, fast service. The price on the food is about average considering other places with about the same ranking. However, the prices on the wine are ridiculously high. We did not have the chance to see the flamenco show though.

We went twice, first time was good. 2nd time I think I got sick from the fish or shrimp, not sure how fresh it is. I will give them the benefit of the doubt and say maybe it was just me. Lots of the food is bland and needs more flavors. It gets pretty busy and service can be slow,... More

The ambiente is awesome, we had the best time with the show; maybe the service was a bit lacking and the food wasn't what we were expecting even though it was pretty good.

They really went out of their way to ensure a good birthday meal. From placing a special little framed "Happy Birthday" on our table, to performing a special song in honor of my birthday, I felt royally treated. The tapas and paella were wonderful. I would definitely return and highly recommend.

Indeed very good paella and cozy environment with an interesting Flamenco show (excellent guitar player). Considering its purposes, 5 stars. If you have the time this is a worthwhile experience. Situated near a very busy street corner, good place to start the night.
