“Over-rated, living on reputation rather than quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

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 a portion of cooked rice had been added to a portion of cooked frozen seafood and then mixed together. The rice portions with the conch were adequate but smaller than at other places. Although the service was friendly it didn't really compensate for the poor food

“Nice food, very slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

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 justify the delay.

“Great food and Big Portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

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.

“"Mmmmm Delicious"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The cooperativa de pescadores or Fisherman's place is a great place that serves the most delicious sea food I have ever tasted We liked this restaurant so much that we went there three times in four day stay in san Andres. We ordered a delicate 100% natural lemonade anda a deliciouis fish with a side of rice, salad, plantain slices, and lemon. It's really worth visiting and the price is more than reasonable for the amount and quality of the food.

“Fresh fish in a local atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

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.
