Reasonably priced very simple home cooking with great flavor. I came for dinner which is about $4 and it tastes fresh and flavorful. I'll be back for the lunch special the other reviewers have been raving about.

Excellent food and service over a couple of weeks. Unfortunately the first time we were served by the man of the house he took advantage of us with drinks and change. The food here is great but there are many other places in town that...More

Food is good. Large portions. Staff is very helpful, especially when Spanish is not your strength. I ordered the steak and fries, which came with a delicious side salad. That and a beer for $9.

So so delicious and very affordable! The service was good- get the banana batido (milkshake) to wash down the meal. We plan on going back before our trip is done

We got patacones, which are kind of like crunchy stuffed quesadillas made of plaintain instead of tortillas. They were really great, a ton of food, and super cheap. Service was good. Highly recommended.

Colombian food, fresh, clean and hospitable place. Great lunch specials, but anything of the main menu is a cant miss. Tip: gets crowded during lunch hours as any good place. Still, come before 12pm or after 3pm to make sure you find a place. Highly...More

Not fancy by any means, but very good food at very fair prices. Definitely worth stopping by and having a meal.
