Excellent environment.

It was a good experience. The environment that this restaurant has is different. Three musicians were playing excellent music. Food was good although, I personally expected a little more about the food. I'd recommend the salmon with plantain pure (excellent), I do not the shrimp with coconut (very... read more

Okay, I'm going to keep this review on the short side. However I did want to get this review in as this restaurant was so good. The overall experience I would have to give a9 out of 10. The ambience was unique and excellent. It is romantic place that would've been better if my wife was with me. Nevertheless the... More

I have been to Cali many times and never knew of this place until a couple of months ago; now I try to have dinner here every time I'm in the city. If you are in the mood for a restaurant with an amazing Thai decoration, lounge music, great cocktails, dim lights, and very good food........this is the place. Ask... More

I loved this restaurant. Like, I really really loved the house it's located in. Never have I visited such a perfectly decorated and gorgeous setting in Cali. It's worth it just for that alone. However, don't set your expectations too high with the food. While it is by no means bad, it is quite average and does not stand out... More

I may not qualify as a food critique but I am darn close to being one. So here is my impression of A&C. The place is a dream, it doesn't even feel like a restaurant but more like your in some far away Indonesian sunken garden paradise. The menu is sort of limited; which is okay but that means that...

I come to Cali often, but did not know this place. Met with a friend for a late lunch. Beautiful setting and great ambience. We liked the food, but it was also not outstanding and for Colombian standards - even compared with Bogotá - quite expensive. The service was simply not very friendly, in Cali one is spoiled by so...

This restaurant has the charm of an antiques shopp, of a tide flea market. But you are sitting there in the middle of beautiful things from all over the world, eating wonderful meals. The food is excellent. The cocktails are also good.... but the best is the atmosphere of this restaurant.

Visited on a Saturday night. The frog's enchanting sounds will welcome you (yes, they have live small frogs in the indoors garden), while you walk around the Zen Ambiance admiring the water flowing and antiques that are for sale. What a place to have character! Then the food, try the blackberry and soursop (guanábana) juice. The blend is soothing. Crispy... More
