Ceviche GuideThe best ceviche restaurants in Cartagena

Although the traditional Ceviche was born and bred in Peru, Cartagena can unofficially count itself as the modern maestro of the fishy dish, thanks to its seaside location and plethora of award-winning chefs doing their own spin on the ancestral recipe.

From the rough and ready street fare, eaten with ketchup in a polystyrene cup and served with a side of traffic-jam, to the classier bone china orchard-topped kind, undertaking the ceviche challenge is guaranteed to maximise your Cartagena experience - and your waistline - whatever your budget.

The dish is a simple concoction of fresh fish cooked in lime, so its slippery texture may crinkle the noses of fussy fishy eaters out there, but with our selection top citrus-filled moments we are sure we can make a ceviche convert out of anyone.
