Fresh fish in a local atmosphere

San Andres is not cheap and the prices at the cooperativa were equally high, but we enjoyed the lunch very much. The restaurant was full, we were probably the only non colombians there. Service was friendly and quick.

If you want to eat the absolute best fried fish in the island, this is the place to go. Having said that, keep in mind this is a place where service might be a bit slow (specially during busy hours) but so worth the wait if you are into seafood at local hangouts. Do not expect white glove treatment or... More

Having visited the excellent fish co-operative restaurant on Isla Providencia we looked forward to eating at this one in San Andres. What a disappointment. One of us asked for Shrimp Ceviche and got shrimp in cold sauce - the same sauce that another of our party got [warm] on his conch creole. The seafood rice looked and tasted as though... More

They offer a big selection of local dishes. Food was nice but service was too slow, we were a group of six and two of us received or dishes 30 min later while the other 4 had to wait for on hour. Some in our group were very happy with the food but mine was just ok and I can't... More

The place is in open air but with a roof and nice views of the beach. The food takes a while to come because every dish is prepared freshly from the fishing of the day.

We had kingfish and breadfruit. Fish a bit over priced and dry. Nice spot to sit and people watch

The food we eat was good enough even if I found better places on the island where to eat fish. Many dishes were not available at the time we went. The price was not economical compared to what w eat. An important hint on timing: don't go for dinner as the place is great with daylight and is very sad... More

Seaside local..super fresh fish,select your own & have it cooked up the way you like it.Reasonable price from the fishermen to you.I tried the whole Snapper & the next visit fillete ala plancha ajiado (garlic butter) I like to take the local bus ask the driver to drop close by.Afterwards you can stroll the promanade to walk off some calories.

This was the best food we had in the island, at the end of our staying. And the quantity and the price were good too. The patacones were different from any other in the other places we visited in Colombia, light and tasty. The fish is very fresh, you can see the fishermen there on the beach bringing it back......
