They were out of two of the non-seafood dishes on the menu, leaving me to choose one that tasted a lot like overpriced Sloppy Joes. My friends who eat seafood were happy, but not overwhelmed. It was a fine place and it looks fantastic, but...More

So pleased with this restaurant! I had a pasta dish with angel hair pasta and langoustine. It was so good! Perfect sized serving! The vibe is like old Havana. Beautiful colors and photos on the walls.

We went there for dinner twice when we visited Cartagena. The tostones with crabmeat are excellent and their white sangria is out of this world good!!! There is a latin combo that plays live music. Recommended for dinner.

We randomly picked this spot, then later founded out that Will Smith visited here before. The food was great, there was a live band playing and our waiter was great and the food was reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this place.

The place has a vibrant magic vibe when you walk in... and the live music was really well done. Skip the cocktails - they will be too sweet (unless you like sweet drinks) and the thing called a pisco? It’s a wacky mix of other...More

I personally think it’s a very beautiful restaurant with a great concept, the atmosphere is amazing and they have live music, the service is great, some dishes of the menu weren’t available. Dishes are big so try to not go hard on the starters.

First of all, we were a huge (25) group and the service was good and fast. The place is very beautiful. The food was delicious. However, the best part was the great tropical music a group was playing. I will return.
