Real authentic Colombian food

Nice little restaurant, family-run, the cook is a Colombian mother of family, and it shows! Good food, good prices, everything you want except... maybe a bit slow in service (OK, I was there on a full-house evening).

I'm Colombian and I was really happy to discover that they have the real Colombian taste. The menu it's the typical everyday food in Colombia and it's delicious. I was so exited when I realized they have real fruits juices of some fruits that we only have there :) they also have aguapanela and carajillo. Perfect! The personal was really... More

The atmosphere and food of this place are unique!! the staff is very friendly and the food is made with taste and love. I can say without doubts, this is one of the best Colombian restaurants in Europe. Highly recommended, especially if you want to try the well reputed Colombian food.

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
