We've been in Colombia for 3 weeks and today we finally had the most delicious Spanish food in this country! And the coconut lemonade was super tasty too! A must do if you go to Minca!

Came here with a group of travellers and we were all impressed with the food and the service. The prices are very reasonable and I can see why it’s one of the top choices here

We went for happy hour and had vegan burgers with fries for COP 10,000. They were very tasty. The happy hour drinks were good too. I would go again.
