Excellent Steakhouse

We enjoyed our first visit in May so much, that we very much looked forward to dining here again on our return to Barranquilla in July. High quality cuts of beef not often found along the coast, wonderful appetizers such as the mussels as well as the escargot, and a delightful bottle of wine... read more

Hi, the place is great. It is small, but the food is fantastic. The pepper steak is one of their main serves, but I recommend the Chataubriand: a fantastic, juicy tasteful piece of meat with a fancy name. If you visit Barranquilla, go there BUT make sure you have a reservation.

This was a welcome respite from a long work trip. I had heard that it was hard to get reservations - luckily a work contact is a long time friend of the owner. Fabulous steak. Incredible palmitas salad. Nice wine. Overall - excellent. Colombian beef always tastes amazing (and I say this as someone who lives in Texas). Highly recommended.

I have been there many times and always when we visit the city of Barranquilla, Colombia. I recommend to make a reservation due to the fact that it is a small restaurant attended by the owners. Excellent food specially the steaks and seafood.

It's one of the best pepper steaks i've had in many years! The place is small but quaint. Service was good. The facade of the restaurant could do better...and it's a bit overpriced.

The clarified butter sauce was wonderful. It was expensive and worth it. The Chilean red was cool which is what it is supposed to be in the tropics. The whole thing was as good as it gets and I have eaten steak au poivre at Troisgros, in Roanne. It wa delicious.

The best peper streak in the country. The only problem is that is open only for lunch (Mon to Fry). Reservation strongly recommended.

This is a high-end restaurant for barranquilla standards. It means that it is high-end in relation to all places in Colombia maybe with the exception of Bogota were the restaurant scene is in deed growing. The problem with this is that the price IS close to what you might pay in some high-end restaurant in Stockholm... So, this is a... More
