I ate dinner on a Friday night with four colleagues. I was not impressed by the food, nor the service. Due to the prices, you expect better food and service. Wine list was non-existent / prices not accurate.

Carambolo used to be a great restaurant few years ago, when it has the genius of Vicky. Now it is just a bad imitation of its past glory. The menu has lost its wonders, just the original names remains. The service is slow and poor, with bad trained personnel that doesn't care...Even when the owner is over there, it doesn't... More

The food is simply delicious; my favorites are their fish and their beef. Evethough many other restaurants have made their appearance in Cali, some... More

Absolutely must go for good dinner. Small but nice and friendly place. Service is kind but a little bit "crazy" nice guys... Double check your orders... Sometimes they forget something .... Overall 4,5/5

Can't deny this is probably the best Colombian fusion restaurant there is in Cali. It's vast menu and choices give it a broad sense of professionalism surrounding this great place. But one thing, DO NOT ORDER DRINKS. We were charged for a half bottle of gin way too much. It didn't feel good or right. It ruined our night knowing... More
