We tried 4 different types of sushi and they were all excellent. The waitress was very friendly and helped us choose according to what we like. I would definitely go back. So far it has been the best sushi we had while travelling through Colombia....More

Wonderful sushi and delightful service. Came to Tabletai after a recommendation from a buddy. The place did not disappoint. Many options and variety to choose from. Great location in the heart of the old town too. Healthy lean food for a baking hot day.
