The atmosphere outside
in the courtyard is extraordinary. Very romantic. The service was good. My husband loved his fish. Mine was a bit too creamy, but I didnt ask enough questions on preparation. Overall, we loved our experience here. Definitely worth going

Unfortunately tonight the service was truly bad. Totally disorganized. Full of errors . This came as a surprise to us because last year the service was outstanding. The same applies btw to the bar of the Santa Clara . And even at the hotel front / reservation desk where we were told that a booking at 1621 could not be done before 3 pm! And when I said «this» I was told ...call after 3 pm ! Food was great but there is definitely something wrong going on with the service . Unacceptable at a first class luxury hotel .

Restaurant came highly recommended, but disappointed mainly in its service. No help was offered to my girlfriend which came in with a injury, the staff was just starring instead of offering help. Furthermore, it took 45 minutes until we received a glass of water, which is just one of many things that did not work as expected (table was not cleaned, dirty plate was offered, etc). The food was good but not spectacular. Maybe worth a visit on a good day.

I was disappointed with 1621, everything started good, the restaurant has good ambiance. The first person who attended us was nice, as the restaurant became busier the next person forgot to refill our water. I order a cazuela which was just ok ( nothing really innovative about it). The charcuterie appetizer was average, my sister order the sea bass - ok. Then we waited forever to get our wine ( the restaurant became busier .. and suddenly it seem they forgot about us). They never came to offer any desserts or coffee, it took forever to even get our check. Not worth it ..

This was the best experience I have ever had at a restaurant. It was beautiful and literally perfect! I made a reservation for me and my wife for her birthday. I asked for the outdoor section based on the pictures that I have seen. Our table was set up beautifully and slightly secluded from the other tables, facing the center fountain and in between their garden. My wife was even greeted with a “Happy Birthday.” The food was amazing. They made us feel like royalty. Such a great experience. I live in New York and travel a lot, this restaurant in Cartagena takes the cake.
