10. February 2015: Restaurant Leños & Carbón

The Restaurant Leños & Carbón is specialized in meat – and although the place is located in a mall and is, therefore, not really my first choice to go eat, I was positively surprised. The “New York Steak” (37’800 COP) was aromatic but I have had better meat before. As a side dish to the […]

10. February 2015: Restaurant Mango’s @ Four Points by Sheraton

Definitely one of the better breakfast experiences I have had so far. The staff is unbelievably friendly, very welcoming and does generally a great job. They know your name after one day and even which omelet you prefer. Definitely high quality service I have not experienced in this form from a FourPoints by Sheraton so […]

9. February 2015: Restaurant Marea by Rausch

The last lunch in Cartagena was one to remember. The Rausch brothers also run the Criterión in Bogotá (supposedly the best restaurant in Colombia – with which I do not entirely agree) but I actually prefer the Restaurant Marea by Rausch. Lunch started with a “torre de cangrejo y guacamole (con una reducción de vinagre […]

8. February 2015: Restaurant 1621

The Restaurant 1621 is in the Sofitel Hotel and is ranked among the best restaurants of Cartagena. I went for the tasting menu “Menu Découverte” (115’000 COP) which started with a selection from different breads, namely corn, wholegrain, black olives, and French baguette. Followed by a amuse bouche from the kitchen, a “gazpacho con fresas, […]

8. February 2015: El Coro Lounge Bar

The “La Leyenda (lemongrass infused absolut vodka, lychee liqueur, mint leaves, lime juice, mango and passion fruit tea)” (24’000 COP) is – as the drink’s name already suggests – a legendary drink. The taste is quite fruity but still intense with vodka – so the perfect drink after a long day if you want to […]

8. February 2015: Restaurant Harry Sasson

Actually more be accident than planned I walked in yet another Harry Sasson this time in Cartagena instead of Bogotá and I must admit I was also not disappointed. The “Carpaccio Harry’s Bar con Dressing de Mostaza” (26’800 COP) had good meat quality and the combination with the mustard dressing and the fresh parmesan shavings […]

7. February 2015: Restaurant Carmen

I originally wanted to go for dinner but did not managed to get out in the evening so ended up at the Restaurant Carmen for lunch. It started with a “tartar de atun sobre papa amarilla, salsa de cilantro y tequeño tipico de peru y salsa samba olek” which was served as an amuse bouche […]

6. February 2015: Executive Lounge @ Hilton Cartagena

The Executive Lounge of the Hilton Cartagena is a typical Hilton Lounge – generally quite okay with regards to its interior but nothing breath-taking. In this case though the Hilton is in the lucky situation that the Hilton is located right at land end so you get to see the sea from the lounge. The […]
