This is the first restaurant in Barichara where there is excellent customer service. The food takes time but it is home cooked with style. Rich, natural, fresh flavors all over.

Not always easy to find veggie food in Colombia so shambala was a real treat with mango ceviche for starters and super tasty rice and pasta dishes served with local IPA beer La Perra Loca. Good service excellent food highly recommend.

Great little restaurant, great food, great atmosphere. The owner is an artist and her love for her business is reflected in the food. It is not to be missed, if you’re in Barichara.

As this place has only 3 tables, you'll be lucky to get seated straight away at busy weekends. Nevertheless it's worth the wait. Food is great, prepared in front of you in the open kitchen, and arrives in generous portions. We can recommend the Thai...More

Andrea de cook is fantastic. The making of the food and the condiments give every dish their own flavor from Hindu to Thai to Colombia. The drinks are fantastic, the mojito and the margarita are worth to stop by.
