Good food, relaxing atmosphere

We went here for lunch during the heat of the day. Cali is warm, and since this restaurant is not air conditioned, I recommend getting a table away from the kitchen area and away from sunlight heat. I ordered the Lomo (young beef) with mushrooms and cilantro. The beef was a little tougher than... read more

I have visited this restaurant multiple times and I thought it was time to write a review. Every time I go to Cali, this is a must visit place for me and its not entirely because of the food. As you walk in to this restaurant you will encounter a huge patio, and sometimes (on weekends) there will be a... More

I have been here twice within a very short timespan. Both times the food was delicous and the staff friendly. I would absolutely recommand this place.

We had dinner at Faro el solar with a group of ten. The service is great, altough the restaurant was full, we did not have to wait long for our drinks or food. The quality of the food is good for its price. A minor setback was the band that started playing loudly during our dinner, after which a conversation... More

Great setting with a nice, sophisticated feel. Service not great but very good Italian food from an enormous menu. We enjoyed it and it would have been fantastic had the service been reasonable (waiters non existent most of the time and ours began talking to someone else when taking our order).

Took TWO hours to get the main course. After complaining and asking for the bill they finally brought it but it was too late (11:00pm). So we left disappointed, hungry and upset. When asked the GM if she knew about TripAdvisor, she had no clue. No wonder why??????? Do not go there!!!!! There are hundreds of amazing restos in Cali.... More

Food was average. Service slow and the prices did in no way match the experience (way over priced). We came here on a Sunday night and it seemed like the employees would rather be at home. Salat was pure lettuce and coconut juice pure water. Grilled seafood plate was not grilled but seafood swimming in sauces and cost 140.000 pesos!... More

Yes folks . . . my husband & I agreed that we received THE ABSOLUTE BEST FOOD EVER at a restaurant in Cali. I ordered the Lasagna Del Fruto & my husband ordered some sort of beef w/spaghetti meal. That beef & the sauce were just amazing & the meat just melted in your mouth. My Lasagna was FULL of... More

This is a must see place if you are in Cali!! The "lulada" is amazing and the ambiance is great. I was not to thrilled with the food but the service made up for that. If you are going to Cali don't miss out on this place.

Nice ambience with live music, salsa and place for dancing. Seems like you are dining on a spanish patio. Great food, fair wine list- but with the warm weather beer is your preferred choice.
