4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The restaurant is very nice, all outdoors and very "tropical looking" with live bands and so on. Nice selection of cocktails to drink. The food is nice. I was expecting a bit more but it was nice. Sobrebarriga was very nice. I ordered the baby beef which I found it was a bit dry... Empanadas were very nice too.

Very good place to eat typical Colombian food. It has a great variety: meats, red beans, sea food, but probably the best typical food is "sancocho & ajiaco (soups), sobrebarriga (meat), empanadas, y patacones".

It's not a fancy restaurant, it's a typical one. If you want to eat traditional food from Colombia with folcloric music, then go. Ask for frijoles and jugo de lulo.

Nice outdoor spot to eat some Colombian traditional meals. Sit under a thatched roof and enjoy a gentle breeze while having a cold beer and some empanadas. Good atmosphere and lunch time crowd. Free wifi spot

The beans are the center of gravity of their choises. It is not mexican...just Colombian red neck food...still, a good enough choise.

In the north of Cali,Under a massive thatched roof is located Simon Parilla . A restaurant that has the old Colombian atmosphere, excellent service, low prices, and is family friendly. Their soups are large with great quality and the mixed meat plate (plato mixto) is dificult for the average person to finish. If you need attention during your meal and... More
