We heard a lot of people mention this place so we decided to give it a try. We tried the fish soup appetizer, seafood casserole, and snapper soup. The two soups while having different ingredients was made from the same soup base so tasted similar. I liked the appetizer one better. I didn't care for the seafood casserole though as... More

We had amazing night in La Casa de Socorro! The service was great and the food was speechless. My only recomendation is prepare to wait a litle bit than the normal in lunch time becuase the place is always packed!

Here's the deal: Three restaurants with the word "socorro" ("help" in English--an odd name for an eatery, don't you think?) are located within spitting distance of each other. There's Donde Socorro, La Casa de Socorro, and La Cucina de Socorro. I'm pretty certain it was La Casa de Socorro touted by Lonely Planet, and that's where we ended up our... More

Three of us had sea bass in three different ways and each thought they were very good. We had been eating a lot of seafood, so I decided to try something more familiar - barbecue spare ribs - and they were almost as good as those in the barbecue joints in the states - the sauce was just a little...

Our taxi driver asked where we wanted to and we said to a restaurant in the old city. He said, I have a very good one so we took him up on it. La Casa de Socorro was pleasantly nice with many fresh fish options (and meat dishes). My favorite is Robolo fish in garlic sauce.

I was here with my friends and for them everything was fine but they mix-up my order and forgot about it but I have to say that the food of my friends was good, mine not so good but OK. Probably I will think twice before I go back there. The price was acceptable.

We went to la casa de socorro with a bunch of friends. The place is nice, the service friendly but a little slow. The food Itself was good but a bit too pricey for what you get.

The service is not "bend over backwards" but this is where locals eat. It is a relaxed casual restaurant without any bells and whistles. We stayed in the old city and you have to exit the old city to arrive here. Problem with the old city is that most restaurants were European/American. This restaurant specializes in seafood. The food was... More

We were told that it was a fun and happening place. It is true that the clients looked young and relaxed but the rest was completely uninteresting. Food was canteen quality (although I have never been in a canteen in Colombia), service could not care less, decor pretends to be shabby chic but forget the chic. There is so much... More
