For several years while visiting Cali, I keep hearing about how well wonderful this restaurant is. Believe me, the setting is beautiful in the restaurant. The main entrance is a furniture store, with beautiful pieces not easily found in Colombia ( looks like IKEA-made ). The food is "ok", nothing special or gourmet ( between a Chick-fil-a and an Olive... More

This restaurant is truly amazing. We came here to celebrate a birthday and were extremely pleased. First of all, the building itself is beautiful. The outside is entirely covered in green ivy. The interior had beautiful antiques and a nice clean feeling. We ate in the garden which was perfect. The tables were separated by flowing curtains so you felt... More

This place is really amazing, sharing house with what seems to be an interior design shop they have really managed to combine these two well into each other. You will probably not find a more beautiful restaurant or house in Cali. Its careful design offers a green and open garden as well as intimate tables for those special occasions. Food... More

Beautiful restaurant, Good atmosphere. Feels like eating in a garden. The food and service was average. Steaks not served as ordered and nothing special.

One of the most beautiful restaurants in town. The place is simply gorgeous and the food and service were amazing. We didn't have to wait so long for the food to arrive like a lot of people said. The restaurant had a classic group singing and playing during dinner and it was just fantastic.

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 dry dish and not so creative). Finally I have to say service... More
