“Nice setting, but lumpy fondue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

I expected so much more of Paris Criollo. It has the workings of a nicely designed Caribbean-French restaurant, but they must work on the gastro flair. My fondue was very lumpy and gritty. The bread basket/portion for the cheese fondue was for one person (and we were four). Plus they have a very limited wine list for the dinner selection. Would consider them again, but need some help in the kitchen.

Hi Richard. Thanks for leaving your comments.

We will try to improve our fondues thanks to your opinion. Would you please tell me the type of fondue you ordered? So we can work on the recipe and of course, we'll consider the amount of bread.

Thanks again, and we are really sorry you had a bad experience.

Diego.

“Great experience and wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

We were there for drinks on a Saturday evening and were entertained by a musician on a bike playing from the heart. The owner of the restaurant is great.

“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I went to this restaurant after reading the other good reviews on tripadvisor. We loved it! First of all they had 2 for 1 cocktails so we had 2 delicious frozen margaritas for only 13,000 pesos!(of course we had to order 2 more). Then we went for the cheese fondue with quesos criollos which was also delicious. We were really suprised and found it kind of weird to eat cheese fondue in santa marta but it was great! And finally we had an amazing dish with octopus and calamari in red wine sauce which was to die for! All this in a really nice ambience - a cute street with music and cool, modern decor. This was both the cheapest and the most delicious meal we had in colombia sofar!!!! Don't miss it!!
