The place from the inside is like average. Staff is friendly. Me personally, I did not like my dish. It was grilled fish. For my taste, the fish was too heavily grilled and also too oily. I can however imagine that there might be people who just like it that way. I also do not have experience in general with... More

This place has good comments on tripadvisor, so we went on a Friday evening. It's common knowledge that Germany doesn't have the best reputation when we're talking about food and just like most of the reviewers the Columbian cuisine was unknown to us; unfortunately we didn't read the menu careful enough so we ordered fish with shrimps. What came up... More

The place is much better than it might seem from the outside! Cozy, warm and friendly atmosphere, very good food (grilled meat and home-made lemonade were delicious!), and you can order in at least 3 languages there!

I visited Karibik with my boyfriend following the good recommendations of other Trip Advisor users. We never tried Columbian food, so we didn't know what to expect. The restaurant is a bit small but very cozy and well decorated, and they always put nice latin music. It is run by a Colombian family and they are very welcoming. The service... More

Randomly found this restaurant and were pleasently surprised. It seems plain and simple, but the food was so good. The waitress spoke Spanish to us after hearing our attempts to order in spanish for the rest of the night, muy simpatico! The food was great, it seemed very traditional and authentic, and is definetely recommended as it's something you won't... More

First time at Karibik and I really enjoyed the meal. No English menus but the waited did his best to translate for those items I was unsure of. The small plate starters were really good and meant ordering many different things so I could try a good selection of dishes. The main course argentine steak on kebab was also very... More

I took my parents to Karibik as we’d never tried it and it was something different to the usual Greek, Turkish or Chinese places in town when I come to visit Aachen. The place is relatively small but when we entered we were greeted by the lady in the kitchen with a welcoming ‘Ola!’ The restaurant filled up within an... More

My wife and I came here, because we were looking for something different - neither one of us ever had Columbian food. The restaurant is really small, only about 8 tables for 30+ guests. Seems to be frequented mostly by students, when we were there. The food was was nice, something with a different flavor profile and you do get... More

We've been to this restaurant a few times now. And I must say the food is absolutely delicious, and very different from what you can usually find in cities. Everything is very tasty, very well cooked, and you can almost taste the love that is put into it. But on the other hand, the older man serving food is well,... More

I went last saturday and I asked for a "bandeja paisa" and it was delicious. It had all the ingredients, pork, sausage, fried egg, rice,beans, avocado, arepa, patacones and picadillo. The service was excellent, I definitively plan to go back again.Please, keep in mind that colombian portions are huge compare with Europe.
