We had a wonderful time in this loval, very friendly restaurant with good menu and variety. We had apetizers and main dish. The authentique Cartagena beef is very good!

Well known place in Cartagena but infortunately it has changed for worse. First of all the actual place isn't nice at all and It's not very clean. We ordered sierra (caribbean fish with nice white meat nearly thornless) soup and pargo frito (fried red snapper). No appetizer because they had no sea shells. The soup was terrible, just a big...

I went on January 1st, not the best day of the year to go to a popular place in Cartagena, everyone is hangover and people are coming from all over to spend the first week of the year in Cartagena. But that's not an excuse to be bother by the people who should be helping. At one moment, there was... More

I try to make a stop in here every time I am in town. I particularly love the beautiful garden in the entry way. Expect good service, good food, and not incredibly high prices. Over all good value

My husband and I were there a bit early but the staff was so nice to let us in. Visiting from New Orleans, we are used to Cajun food. This restaurant offered some food which are new to us and was really good.

We tried it for dinner, and the place was not as busy as for lunch (we walked by during lunch time and it was packed with waiting list). Food was good, well served. Loved the coconut lemonade.

My foodie Colombian friend recommended this place as "low key restaurant where you find the most authentic Colombian coastal food." The place is modest in appearance, and there is no fancy presentation to their food. I ordered the cazuela de mariscos (seafood stew) and side of patacones as recommended, and they were not disappointing! They do have English on the... More

Several people recommended this place in Cartagena for their food and the service so I was there with my girlfriend. The food was good (average) but the service was very poor.

Great little place to escape for lunch serving all the best in local shelfish. The aircondition was nice and strong with it being such a hot blazing day. I would recomend the seafood stew or the whole fried snapper that is served with a nice light salad coconut rice and a healthy serv ing of deep fried plantain.

Always a fight over which Socorro is better, both are good, but this one is slightly better. The chicharron is one of my favorites. This restaurant has a steady stream of return locals. The cazuela is delicious
