Never disappoints me

Carambolo never dissapoints me. I have been there with colleagues from work, family and my couple and keeps being a great choise. Food is really really good and has a plenty variety of option in its menu.

I had the Damaris de Diego - rice with coconut, shrimp stew and fried plantain. Loved the combination of flavors. For dessert, we had the chocolate profiteroles which were delicious. Nice ambiance and great service from the staff and owner.

A fantastic restaurant. We were greeted by a girl who was promoting a Colombian rum, which was really good. We ordered seafood here, and it was very well cooked. The desserts were great too. Our server was attentive, though he couldn't get through the taxi company when we needed it. We walked a block to find a taxi (it was... More

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

Nestled in the hip Granada neighborhood is a quaint restaurant that has proven that good food, great service and an incredible environment can go a long way. 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
