Given the price and quality of dishes there is overestimation. We paid 30 US dollars for arroz olimpo, supposed to be a chaufa. Not only it was salty but was not fresh.

This is a Peruvian style restaurant and their ceviche is great but they also have some amazing dishes off the grill. We were a HUGE group so service was slow but the staff was great and really worked hard for us.

A place filled with Antioquia's tradition! Our dishes were born in our grandmas kitchen and here we transformed them into our identity, colombian flavors that speak our history and with no doubt you will fall in love with them.
