Restaurante Arabe e Internacional - Restaurant Cartagena - Colombia

Restaurante Árabe e Internacional is one of the few restaurants in Bocagrande that offers half portions of nearly everything on the menu. Specializing in Arabic dishes like quibbe and baba ganoush, this place cooks up mighty fine food in the quaint quarters of a courtyard and relaxing fountain. Local meat and seafood dishes are available here too. They’ve been open for nearly 50 years, which could justify the exorbitant price for lobster. Arabic dancers perform for restaurant guests on Fridays and Saturdays. Open Monday, Wednesday-Friday noon-3 p.m., 7-10 p.m.; weekends noon-10 p.m.; closed Tuesday.
