Description: Frenchie offers the only true french crepes in cartagena thanks to our parisian chef. The restaurant is ideally located in barrio san diego near in the most glamourous and foody barrio of the city. All our crepes are made minute by minute as you order them with fresh ingredients of the day. Our restaurant is a family one in wich you can feel cosy and comfortable as the night comes in our delightful ambiance transforms into a cabaret or cafe Parisian and piano bar.

Great combination of Colombian ingredients with the more complex flavors of French cuisine. Awesome change of pace after a couple weeks of traditional Colombian food.

This place is amazing! We had a spectacular ceviche and they served it with some really special smoked spices from Caquetà. Then we had the tastiest crepes we've ever had, with mushrooms and Gruyere cheese. The atmosphere was also superb, in the front of an old colonial house in the walled old city of Cartagena. We are definitely going back.

This was a spectacular find, as we were strolling down the street in search of a light yet satisfying lunch. There was a 18.000 lunch special featuring a fresh squeezed juice, salad, and a savory crepe. My friend and I weren't starving, so we opted to share the special with an added juice followed by a sweet crepe and coffees. It ended up being almost too much food, but everything was so delicious that we couldn't let any bites go to waste.

The juice: There were about 6 options of fresh-squeezed juice, but we both opted for pineapple as it sounded perfectly thirst-quenching after a hot stroll. 5/5

The salad: Simple, small and delicious. It came in a small bowl with fresh greens, grated juicy carrots and a couple of tomato slices. While very basic, it was still fresh and a nice size for the set lunch. 3/5

The savory crepe: I cannot express with words the deliciousness of this savory crepe. It was the best crepe (sweet OR savory) I've ever eaten. The crepe was lightly browned and stuffed with a perfect serving of soft cheese, which was barely noticeable until we cut in. The crepe was topped by a light and flavorful cream sauce completed with sautéed mushrooms and plump nicely-cooked chicken. Simply magical. 5/5

The sweet crepe: While this wasn't on the set lunch menu... What's a meal without dessert? We ordered a chocolate crepe that was anything but plain. Like the savory crepe, it was perfectly cooked and had a satisfying ratio of crepe to chocolate. Style points for featuring local, homemade chocolate. YUM. 5/5

The coffee: Lovely taste, and it came out in the cutest china - including the cutest sugar bowl. The only downside was the small portion (could finish in 2 decent gulps), but it's comparable to other Colombian coffee spots. 4/5

The ambiance: Coffee shop feel, and every course is served on quaint China. Great vibe, and great service. 5/5

After a day of sightseeing I wandered in here for lunch, and I am so glad I did. I got the lunch special, which was a great salad, stewed chicken and a juice. It was delicious, filling and very inexpensive. My fiance was a little more indulgent and got the terrine and an entree. I ended up stealing half of his terrine, it was so delicious.
