The menu is very varied and the food is of very good quality and on weekends in the evenings there is live music and you can dance salsa dancing music that enchants the Caleños. Very good plan and very comfortable prices. This is how you dance in Cali.

This restaurant closed my business trip in Cali with a wonderful Salsa Night. As a Brazilian, it was a very nice experience to learn a little bit from Salsa and meet some locals. The food is average to good, but the animation of the place made my night experience a lot fun! Recommend!

Amazing place. If you like to live the party experience as we Caleños like it (rumba caleña) you cannot miss Tardes. On weekend nights the hole experience is marvelous. You get to eat delicious typical Valle del Cauca food and can enjoy a variated show that includes good latin orquestas, mariachis, 60s bands and others. If you desire it can... More
