We had a great time on this restaurant, family owned and keeping perfection to details all the way through. We make reservations and save some time for the waiting time. The wines chart is amazing, you can have a good wine for a reasonable price, or even try the bottle, you will be not dissapointed. Whatever pasta you order is... More

Above address is now used only for special events and group parties. They have changed their location to Buenavista 2 on the 4th floor. Remember this is Colombia and to get the same quality, choice and competitiveness as in North America, just forget it. In the slow times, between 3pm and maybe up to 5 or 6 pm, they have... More

I was raised in Barranquilla so Ive been familiar with this restaurant all my life.

However, the service is ok.. Not too expensive..

Great place, but make sure you have them break down you meal, because they charged a party of five 100,000 pesos more, until we decided to question the bills authenticity. They tried to give the total to us without showing the breakdown. Luckily we had a translator watching out for us. Good food though, and I do not think it... More
