I would teeter on giving this place two stars but the crepes are good and the people are nice. The food itself is underwhelming. We got a prawn dish and a spaghetti with beef and vegetable dish. The prawns were pretty small, nothing like you'd...More

We had two crepes each...the vegetarian and the four cheese versions as main dishes and two sweet crepes as dessert. It was heavenly! Propably the best food weve had in over two weeks of traveling in Colombia. The French owner was there and kept singing...More
