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.

We have been at Karibik after a long day at the thermal spring. The restaurant is a bit off the city center but within walking distance. Karibik offers only colombian food. The menu is full of real colombian dishes - starters, mains and deserts. The interior is a bit inelegant, it reminded me to a typical german inn: wooden tables... More

I was first told about this restaurant by a friend and after reading a few reviews I decided I needed to check this place out for myself. Upon entering our first impression was, is this it? The styling looked simple, not much different from the kebab places in Aachen. But driven by the good reviews we dove in and ordered... More

My partner had to work in Aachen and he discovered this treasure in July 2011, and since then we are visiting this delicious restaurant. Food is very tasty and keeps its Colombian soul. Dishes are carefully served. They have some Colombian specialities which you can pre-order. You can listening Colombian music and admire some nice paintings. For weekend I would... More
