With an unpretentious vibe and easygoing charms, it’s tempting to underestimate this Getsemaní gem’s culinary pedigree. An homage to Cartagena’s Caribbean roots, fresh, simple seafood and hearty meat dishes combine with more adventurous, exotic fare including picada de Tortuga (stewed turtle) and turtle soup. Of the greatest hits that have made the Casa a locals’ favorite, try the cazuela de marisco, a succulent seafood stew baked with cheese. With a diverse clientele as colorful as the decor, an infectious energy prevails in the breezy open-air dining room. This is good, honest cooking that won’t break the bank.
