The food is really good, freshly prepared at order and very tasty. The owners are really nice too and the place is cosy. A little bit pricey for Villa de Leyva standard, but completely worth it.

I apologise for the reason we were there; it was raining cats and dogs and this was the closest refuge but thank God for the rain!!! Offers a fine range on the menu, we went Middle and Far eastern in our choice, an Arab mixta followed by the Pollo de Curry and Lomo Thai (chicken curry and pork thai style)... More

Is a very nice place, we ate the arabe mixto, is really good, I recommend also the empanadas típicas. We met Zarina and her daughter, very good host, they really love what they do.

We were 3 families on New Year's Eve with no reservations. They sat us up in a private room, nice and cozy, exactly what we needed. Great service, and everything we tried (pretty much the entire menu) was delicious.

Adds a bit of variety it your culinary adventure in Colombia. Tastes great, quantity is a good portion size. Presentation is great. Service was good as well. Give you a break from eating just Colombian good. Very recommended.

We loved our experience in Zarina, the dishes were delicious and for all tastes: vegetarian, middle eastern and international. Nice service from the waitress and the chef himself. Highly recommended

Hidden inside a lovely courtyard, (on the main plaza) is Lebanese restaurant. We tried the assorted plate which included a variety of dishes, all with authentic flavors. A vegetable salad was also fresh and tasty with an original dressing. The owner, the great-granddaughter of a Lebanese immigrant is cheerful and friendly

This restaurant came recommended from someone that my wife knows in the area. As she stated "Other places have their ups and downs but at Zarina, you're never disappointed." We decided to give it a shot. It is located in a charming old Spanish home (along with a number of other restaurants) called Villa Quintero, right on the main square.... More

The food was spectacular! Some of it almost seems like a mix of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine and it worked very well. Lots of great options for vegetarians.
