When you are tired of the larger restaurants in Cartagena and just can't look at another arepa con huevo, plan your escape to Malagana. This small, cheerfully designed duplex cafe and rooftop bar offers fresh and fruity signature cocktails in jars, delicious and exotically seasoned chicken wings and perfect fish tacos. Fresh salads (a rare find) and the mandatory ceviche round out the small but well done menu, providing exactly what you wanted to eat since you arrived in Cartagena. Check to make sure they are open before you go, hours tended to be unpredictable.
