The food was okey but staff is very unfriendly. It was full of with nice local people and I guess that's why they don't need people from outside. You can find good chicken every where but friendship is priceless.

It has been there for many years and the food never dissapoint us. They have a big menu but the best option is to order the "Corrientazo" or Set Menu for lunch which comes with soup, main, juice and dessert. They also have a good trout but ask them not to overcook it. The service is like in any other... More

The food is okay, but I did not return due to the POOR customer service. This was very disappointing as I expected the same customer service as I have experienced in other areas in Colombia. The waiter was not attentive at all and he was also super slow. I had to ask him for the menu, he never came to... More

The food was tasty and they can make it vegetarian if you want. They are kind of slow even if the place is empty and the giant tv with news blasting is not a very romantic setting for a dinner.

We tried this place twice. First time for a light lunch- we entered around 1 pm and were the only customers with about 4 servers standing around. The servers were more busy setting other tables & sweeping than asking us if we needed anything- after about 10 min we asked for a few cervea as- then the server went back... More

This restaurant was recommended by a family member and we didn't regret to visit. Everyone order a different dish and everyone was happy with the orders. My husband was amazed by the chimichurri, he loved it and asked for the recipe but unfortunately we didn't get it. In general the service was good.

As we wanted to try some typical Colombian dishes during our stay we went to this restaurant which had been recommended in various publications. I had the ajiaco and my wife had the sobrebarriga (flank steak) Both dishes were quite substantial, especially the beef. However we didn't find either of the dishes particularly memorable or exciting. Nevertheless probably a fair... More

Definitely not a fancy place but great to try some real local food. We found it because we saw lots of local getting in and out and discovered there were mainly families having their sunday lunches here. The food is basic - don't expect gastronomic delicacies - but fresh and full of flavour.

It was good. Food was nice. I had chicken breast with sesame sauce and it was nice. However, I don't recommend it for nice meals. Waiters are almost always distracted. They don't pay attention to you and you need to raise your hand several times to receive service. Don't sit behind a column or very far from the kitchen, otherwise,... More

I ate here twice because it was convenient to where I was staying. The first time I had Churrasco (steak) and the second a simple soup and salad. It appears that every meal in Colombia is big and the Churrasco was no exception. For around 18,000 you get soup, salad, rice, and potatoes and a generous portion of meat. The... More
