“Warm Service and Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

We are vegetarian, so maybe not the best reviewers of a seafood restaurant, although my husband went rogue and ordered the ceviche that he said was really tasty. But the owner/manager was very accomodating to us, the service and atmosphere is great and he charged us a very reasonable amount (total for 2 was about $20 US), something we did not get elsewhere. This restaurant is very handy, close to the convention center in Getsemani and has great architecture and design (important to me). Enjoy!

“rip-off”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We´ve been there for dinner and ordered two fish off the menue.
Fish was good but after getting the bill, we´be been quite shocked.
30 dollars each is far to expensive for a restaurant like this in colombia.
even in catagena.
order from the menu, only if you go there

“Overhyped”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Went here for lunch after reading the reviews on TA.
There was a large crowd of people from a conference that was taking place in the nearby convention centre. Not sure if the restaurant were overwhelmed with them but our experience was definitely below average. Long wait for service,badly burnt fish, food came out in different stages (sauce for fish came out about 15mins after fish was served, had to ask for it) cutlery was taken away and not replaced (we used the extra ones at the table).
The staff seemed to put alot of people ahead of us - those that came in after us. Maybe because they were locals but that's not good service. Food was really below average for the price. Rice was salty, salad was just a bit of lettuce and burnt fish in a seafood restaurant is not acceptable.
Couldn't wait to leave. Would not return or recommend. Plenty of other great seafood restaurants in the area at a much better price.

“Great for locals and tourists alike!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Great local fish dishes, good variety, with sancocho (seafood soup) a specialty - try the Sancocho de Serra. Friendly service, nice atmosphere, good value. Handy for the conventional center ..

“Delicious, great service and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Good Lord, the FOOD.....we indulged in soups and a range of fish dishes prepared in different styles and they were all so incredible. At the end of the dinner we called out the Chef to give her our compliments for such delicious dishes! Our waiter Jesus was superb! patient and knowledgeable and put up with our loud table even though we came in right before they were about to close. The restaurant is so cute and just walking distance from Hotel Lee where we were staying at. Highly recommend it!
