You have to get the Sangrias, we had 3 maybe 4 pictures, a bit expensive after I got the bill. Overall the menu had great appetizers and entrees but like I said it wasnt cheap. The atmosphere was very trendy and fashion trendy for those who like to be seen. Make sure you get a table near the dance floor,... More

I just recommend this place if you want a drink. It has a great atmosphere to share with friends. Waiters are friendly, but the service is slow. Prices are high, and the quality of food is not the Best. I got a "trucha" dish, and it wasn't warm! I asked the waiter to warm it up, and he took long... More

The waiters are friendly and helpful. I cannot say enough about the atmosphere. If ever in Cali do not miss this place! They do have a wide... More

We wandered into Faro el Solar when scoping out various options along Ave 9N, the main restaurant area. The restaurant is open-air with very festive decorations. The food options are numerous - it felt like the Cheescake Factory in the U.S. for those familiar - but all looked very good. I got a steak salad while my friend got a... More

I really liked the place and the environment... Actually I saw 2 couples celebrating their holiday in the restaurant...I asked for the "canalones de carnes mixtas" and ir was very good... The size of the meal was generous and price was OK for such a nice place

I have been here a 5 or 6 times over the past 3 months, it is a place where people like to get together.... More

OTTIMO SERVIZIO QUALITA PERFECT CORDIALITA MASSIMUM E CIBO FRESCO ALTA QUALITA It seems like a very popular place with locals. It is a huge place with a nice patio. Ideal for a warm night. They even have a band that plays local music (it might get a bit loud but still nice). Food was good.

Great restaurant with excellent food. The whole restaurant is one big patio with very nice setting, not visible from the street. I visited the restaurant during the lunch time and lunch is a big thing in Colombia. People enjoy taking their time eating, so service is slower comparing to North American lunch service. Do not expect to finish lunch in... More
