Just beautiful!

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.

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

Friends of mine invited me one evening to this restaurant, located in one of the older neighbourhoods of Cali, the decoration and setup is of flea market style store with oriental decorations, and water fountains, very nice. Food was ok, and service was pleasant, but the place is impressive, and the bill was as well, it is a very expensive... More

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

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 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...
