Very cozy and pretty cafe. The roof is painted like a galaxy!! We had patatas bravas and croquetas and they were great. The sangria is also very good.

We were lucky to come across this gem just down the street from where we were staying. We liked it so much we had breakfast one day and lunch another. I particularly liked the patatas bravas. Being a traveling vegetarian can be hard so it was nice to find a place where it was easy. Service was good.

All the food we ordered was overcook. Not happy to pay around 10€ In Colombia for an overcooked burger with the bum a bit burned and oily chips. Neither happy to pay a bit more than the burger for a fish with gnocchi. Also, it doesn't looks good when you see the manager eating chips directly from the frying machine... More

This is a lovely spot in Getsemani. The service is really great, the food fresh and very tasty though portions could be bigger. Great presentation too. Prices are on the mid range but it was worth it for the quality of the food.

I opted for the "creamy rice", a risotto, with shrimp and mushrooms and it was done to perfection in every way. The rice was creamy perfect, the mushrooms had a perfect bite, and the shrimp had an elegant crunch to them. I followed up with their chocolate "thingy" for desert and I guarantee that if you go for it you... More

We had dinner at caffe lunatico and had a great time. The food was great and special (details were outstanding, the octopus is highly recommended!), intense taste and food came quite fast. The restaurant has quite a long happy hour so we also had some well priced cocktails - the place itself is quite expensive, but so are most places... More

An unassuming little cafe in getsemani but taste buds blown! I only tried 2 dishes and was given a little green gazpacho entree but I could tell from those 2 that surely nothing on the menu could be bad! The aubergine sticks were lightly battered and drizzled in honey.. something most would have had elsewhere but the delicious stakes here... More

We went to Caffe Lunatico in January of 2016. It is located in Getsemani -- beautiful area to walk around during the day. Cool street art, and cafes / bars/ restaurants. Caffe Lunatico is a great place to pop in for some tapas. The portions are actually pretty big for tapas, and the food was delicious. We ordered the patatas... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while doing a self tour of Getsemani and stopped for lunch. We liked it well enough to come back for dinner that night. It is located near the church so is easy to walk to from the old city. Our waiter spoke English as did the manager and they were very friendly. My wife had... More
