First off, this little gem is located in a central area of San Diego Cartagena overlooking all the activity going on downstairs. It was pretty empty due to what I’m told as being off-season. I ordered the piña colada as recommended by other Trip Advisor...More

Such a cosy place to talk, chill and have a nice time with someone or by your own. Service is really good and food is excellent. Since I discovered it, I fell in love with that lovely environment. Totally recommend.

Ambient cafe/restaurant/bar set in the buzzy and historic Plaza San Diego. Delicious food at great prices. Famous for their authentic thai green curry, nachos, ceviche, hummous, and the best mojitos in town!
