“Fresh Fish, whatever size you want!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Wonderful Red Snapper! Fun on the patio, we were at the Rodadero location not the fancier one downtown. Second time there, remembered it well and it did not disappoint!

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

The seafood is great, the atmosphere and the service excellent. All the locals (and even Bogotaños) know this classic place.

“Pick of the Day Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Great restaurant with plenty outdoor seating, live music and great food. The shrimp dishes were excellent and well seasoned. The serviced and atmosphere were quite a treat.

“Brilliant and disappointing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Had Christmas dinner here. Great situation on the corner of Parque de los Novios; very nice decor; eat in or out - the climate allows either. My meal was brilliant (mixto plate 2), a wonderful selection of garlic prawns, grilled grouper, smoked crab, calamari, octopus and with flattened plantains and sour cream to accompany it; fantastic!

My daughter had Garlic prawn salad, a huge serving of delicious garlic prawns but the salad was a very meager pile of ice-berg lettuce underneath the hot prawns, nothing else! This was a very disappointing salad and did not do justice to the rest of the excellent food. My wife and other daughter had nice meals.

I would recommend the place but just be warned should you decide upon a salad, there is a great selection to choose from but if they are of the same standard then don´t select one. Have what I had!
