A nice evening with live music

We have had a really nice evening (Friday) with live music. It is certainly not a big restaurant and we had luck that there was a table free without reservation. The empanadas and shrimp/cheese starters tasted excellent. Main course was OK. Atmosphere was nice: all tables were occupied and the live... read more

It is a very small place. Probably around 8 tables for 4 people and 3 tables for 2 people. As some indicated, it takes some time before the food is ready, but that is understandable if you want something fresh. We had the bandeja paisa and also the meat empanadas. Fresh orange juice. Walking distance from the Dom.

Service was extremely slow. Cozy place with 9 tables. Nice variety of Columbian food and beer. Cheap bu the food was not that good - except for the empanadas.

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).

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
