With a exposed kitchen, Fusion offers us up Pan Asian food, mixed in with some Indian and sushi and middle eastern options. Yes it is Fusion!!!
One of it’s best features is the welcoming zatar bread and hummus starter.
Also one of the better ‘modern’ restaurants in town. Worth a visit.

5:00 pm – 3:00 am Friday-Saturday
Bringing us back to Cartagena’s Carribean roots, the Bazurto Social Club, located in the old-city neighborhood of Getsemani, fills us with the sounds and tastes of the tropical world it inhabits. Bazurto -named after it’s inspiration: the Basurto Market– is a cacophony of beauty and sound. Original murals are splayed across the walls, while the live band kicks out local hit -anything from Reggae to Reggaton -and you are handed a lovely fresh squeezed cocktail. The cuisine is a an array of local recipies to remind you why the people are always so happy.
As the sign over the door says – Welcome to Jet-Set Mani
Restaurante Bar Cafe Habana
(57) 315 6902566
Calle Media Luna con Calle del Guerrero
Located just outside the walled city in Getsemani (best to go and return by taxi). Cafe Habana is the best Salsa bar in Cartagena (or maybe anywhere?) . Touched by amber lights, the walls covered in framed photos of legendary Salsa stars: Celia Cruz, Johnny Pacheco, … Cuban rum flows while salsa bands swings and the crowd is pulled along for the ride.
A real mixed crowd of locals and tourists (unlike the majority of Cartagena night spots), Cafe Habana is a must if you want to have an authentic night out. So be ready for the crowds on weekends as it is pulling clientele from all over the city.
Although you don’t go there for the food, there is a simple menu that can soften a bit of the the rum you will keep drinking, especialy in this city where every kitchen is closed by 10 pm
