This place is a must do if you like seafood. All the ceviche was excellent. It’s well worth the price and to be be honest if we paid for this kind of food back in Melbourne it would be twice the price so well worth...More

Hands down -- the coastal ceviche was so creative and delicious -- to die for. This was a favorite lunch spot -- much better than La Cevicheria (although their food is good too -- just not as tasty or inventive). Ask bartender Klei for his...More

Fresh, flavorful, and served in a beautiful setting, the ceviches at El Boliche are delicious. La Cevicheria may be the more famous ceviche restaurant in Cartagena, but El Boliche is the best.

This was the best meal I had during the 4 days I spent in Cartagena. Super fresh fish, cute atmosphere and great waitstaff. I had the tamarind ceviche with yucca chips. Will definitely be back when I am in Cartagena again.

We came in for a late lunch just after we arrived in Cartagena, and were the only people in this small restaurant. The staff was so friendly and made conversation with us. The food was excellent- ceviche, crab soup and crab empanadas. Highly recommend.

Very great hole-in-wall spot with ambient house music, friendly local staff, and very flavorful ceviche. We were very glad we came here. Mojito took a while to make but it was clearly super fresh and well thought out (with green apples). The ceviche we tried...More

The restaurant has many fish options but as you know in South America and Central America meat and fish are the main items. This kitchen will work with you as long as they have items that meet your requirements.
