La Cocina de Socorro - Restaurant Cartagena - Colombia

Not to be mistaken for the other Socorro restaurant in Getsemaní, La Cocina de Socorro is a fancier establishment serving original and traditional Caribbean food. María Nelly del Socorro, the cook, fell in love with the art of cooking at a very young age when her grandmother would prepare exquisite meals. She came to Cartagena when she was twelve years old to study cooking and put into practice her grandmother's cooking secrets. Her typical foods consist of magical Caribbean flavors blended together with the family meals she was fond of as a child. Some specialties include seafood stew, jumbo shrimps au gratin, lobster and a fisherman's platter with creole sauce that she calls “Festival de Mariscos.” This is Caribbean fine dining as you’ve never seen it before. There is free parking for guests.

Opening Monday-Friday noon-4 p..m., 7:30-11 p.m.; weekends, holidays noon-11 p.m.
