We went to this restaurant for the first time in 2013 and had a nice experience. We returned this month in 2014 and were disappointed. I ordered a simple Chicken breast with mashed potatoes. The Chicken was good but the INSTANT mashed potatoes were COLD. I kindly sent them back and they were returned COLD AGAIN. When sending them back... More

We stopped by for a bottle of wine to share at one of their outside tables. The idea of selecting your own bottle appealed though it wasn't easy to find something in our price range [which isn't that high!] We found two at 40,000COP [US$20; UK£14]. The first was corked but the owner changed it for the other option without... More

The place looks nice but the terrace is on a busy road. Food is good and also the cocktails are not bad. But it is just overpriced. Half porcion meat main dishes are around 35.000 and whole mains around 48.000. salads around 27.000. Seafood even more ecpensive.

The trouble is, quality eateries of any kind in San Andres Town are a rarity - so anywhere half-decent tends to be expensive or over-rated or, in the case of this place, both. There is just no competition. Food's perfectly OK, decor is very nice but check out the costs: seriously over-priced food products (and, yes, totally appreciate islands are... More

I heard great reviews from this place and had set a really high expectation. However, my experience was extremely unpleasant and to be honest very disappointing. I arrived at the restaurant around 8:30 pm and the restaurant was packed. One of the waitress told us that we would wait for 20 minutes, which was ok for me. After 30 minutes... More

So glad we found this place, we ate here 3 times during our holiday. Amazing selection of wines, a cool deli shop to look around and great food. Recommend the beef medallions, the steak ( go half portions as they're huge!) and the squid in salt and oil. Very chilled atmosphere with tables outside. Just along from the marina and... More

Based on these reviews had expected far better quality food than we received..for Colombia over priced but for the island seemed standard. 35000 pesos for gourmet fish, half of which I left as it was in edible. Setting is lovely and good location but that's about it.

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment. I wish I would have met his expectations. Our fish always have good reviews, maybe it was a bad day. We feel very bad, because the fish was not good. Regarding prices apologize again but in this island everything is a little expensive. Our English is not very good, so... More

This restaurant is amazing! After our first night at Assho where we had beef medallions that were cooked to such perfection that we just couldn't stop eating we knew we had to go back! (one plato fuerte is plenty for two) The next night we had ribs, apple cake and passion fruit cake for desert which was also amazing. The... More
