eats of cartagena.

With hurricane Tomas dampening our beach plans, we had plenty of time to eat and drink our way through the city. One restaurant was more delicious and charming than the next. Classically trained chefs serving up latin + Caribean flavors at remarkably affordable prices. Abundant produce, fresh seafood, overflowing mojitos.

Cafe Mila for mid-day espresso and desserts bestowed from heaven.



Calculated wine pour at sophisticated tasting bar and shop, La Bodega de la Iglesia.

Restaurant 8-18

Dinner at Restaurant 8-18. Sautéed grouper in mushroom beurre blanc followed by coffee and ‘agua romantica’, a traditional digestif made with hot water, mint sprigs and seasonal fruit.

La Vitrola

Perhaps the most coveted reservation in town is at La Vitrola. A restaurant where the clientele, who range from diplomats +  journalists to socialites +  models, enjoy classic dishes and island beats from a six piece band.
