Hi! I am María, executive chef and founder of Caffé Lunático, a renowned petit restaurant in the coolest neighbourhood of Cartagena, Getsemaní!

I have studied and developed my career in Spain. I have worked in several Michelin Star Restaurants in the Basque Country and Catalonia. Since my Grandma was Spanish my experience in that country made me recognize aromas and flavours which reminded me of my Grandma’s kitchen :) .

After 10 years I decided to come back to Colombia and opened Caffé Lunático with the intention to mix flavours from both cuisines, Colombian and Spanish.

Now, I have embarked in a new adventure where myself, along with other chefs, deliver a variety of cooking workshops. At the moment we have 3 workshops: Cartagena Cuisine, Ceviches and French Cuisine. But many more will come soon!

Maria is my personal inspiration. She’s a well-traveled and amazingly creative chef. She taught me how to use simple but fresh ingredients to make absolutely delicious food. They look absolutely amazing and picture worthy too. Maria gave me a private session because other people canceled and I’m so appreciative that she kept my appointment and it really speaks a lot about her integrity and how awesome she is as a persons I love learning everything about food and cooking with her. The 4 different kinds of ceviche we cooked was so fresh and delicious. I’m so excited to be able to share it with friends and family soon.

Maria is amazing and really teaches you a lot about the Colombian quinine you’re making. Come hungry because you’ll be stuff by the end! It’s a great way to meet people, learn about local food and traditions and eat delicious food you helped make. The studio is beautiful and has amazing views. A really fun way to spend an afternoon.
