Description: Republika Taganguera is the restaurant that sits in the Hostel Divanga B&B over two floors. It has been open since 2007 and offers dishes made from fresh, local products and a touch of French flavor. Lucie, the owner of Divanga, aims to offer guests a "meal on a Sunday in a French home¨. Enjoy creative and innovative cocktails, what better to take one of them with magnificent views over the bay of Taganga. The restaurant's bar is open daily from 12 m. until 10 pm. This is an outdoor space that offers panoramic views of the town and where you perceive the gentle sea breeze. Away from the noise, is a good place to rest and make way for the evening. The secret of the bartender is to play with local fruit such as pineapple, mango, passion fruit or mulberry, and mix them with liquor to achieve excellent fusions of textures, smells and tastes.

We spent 4 days at Divanga in Taganga and the food at their restaurant was just amazing. The overall atmosphere was very relaxing with the swimming pool and hammocks around. An outstanding dish we had was the lomo fino, by far the best meal we had in Colombia. The bar on the rooftop is a good place to hang out... More

I stayed at this hostel because it rained so heavely that we were forced to eat here. The salad with chicken was very scanty and too expensive. Single pieces iceberg lettuce, 3 slices tomato, chicken pieces (a lot) and little bit of sauce. But ridiculous to ask US $ 8 for this! Menu offers little variation and it seems to... More

As we were staying at Divanga in Taganga, we could enjoy a great food without going out. Republica is a great restaurant in a hostel with a surprising menu and lovely staff. We recommend the chicken curry French style or the juicy steak with delicious vegetables, also the chicken sandwich, so big that one for two is enough!

Cosy terrace, great food, awesome fresh fruit drinks, chill music. The straff are really friendly, but dont expect them to hang around your table.

if there are comments complaining about the slow service, is because they have not understood that no fast food here. Here the time stops just for relax. Enjoy your meal on the second floor overlooking the bay. I try fish with my wife and really was the best of Taganga. try the Bartender best drink, Lulo juice vodka and Maracuja!!!... More

After 15 minutes of trying to get their attention we finally ordered 2 salmons and an appetizer. Took them another 15 minutes to tell us that they dont have what we ordered (Salmons). When we finally got the meals, one full hour after we sat down, they told us that our appetizer will not come because the kitchen closes at... More

Let's start with the bad, the atmosphere (a backpacker hostel), feels out of place for the quality of food and drink you will be enjoying at this establishment. But who cares, because the quality of the service, food, and drink are unmatched in Taganga. Both the lomo fino in pepper sauce and the lomo fino stir fry were delicious. There... More
