I can say that I have been to two of the Columbian restaurant's and have not been impressed with the food or the service. On the other hand, we go here at least once a week and the food is fabulous. It is always Hot , Fresh and flavorful . As a family of four I have never had a... More

They have all types of latin food, no just Columbian. They specialize in meat platters with a ton of different types meat with generous portions. The ropa vieja is always good as well as the chicken and rice. Very cute on the inside. The outside looks a little run down. I almost did not want to do a review on... More

Two glasses of wine, hummus and 2 bowls for $40... all delicious and the service was excellent. We'll definitely be back.

A nice variety of plates to chose from reasonably priced. My husband and I shared a large churrasco that included 4 sides. We also ordered the Columbian empanadas and had enough to share with the kids. The restaurant seems to attract a lot of locals. We also visited the bakery next door that had plenty of yummy treats in stock.... More

One of the nicer aspects of Brandon is its wide variety of ethnic restaurants. While other towns may have a "Latin" restaurant or two, Brandon has Cuban, Puerto Rican, Spanish, and Columbian restaurants. Cali Viejo is a Colombian restaurant, serving Colombian food (in addition to a few dishes from "neighboring" countries like Venezuela and Ecuador). Our party's selections included ropa... More

My friend suggested this for dinner when we were in the area. The food and service were ok but nothing out of the ordinary. The portions were large for the prices so that was good. I wasn't overly impressed but it was all ok. The flan was nice.

I was introduced to Cali Viejo by a friend who happens to be Hispanic and knows I adore her traditional foods. The menu here is more Colombian, but no worries, it is still amazing and authentic. (It's also a hoot for her when they assume I speak Spanish due to my appearance and then discover I do not.) No need... More

I wanted to try something out the norm for breakfast so my girlfriend and I went here. The prices were affordable and food was good. We got there as soon as the place open. We seen this place several times and now decided to give it a shot. We are coming back to try dinner, the rotisserie chicken.

This is the first time I have eaten here. The main reason for the 3 star rating was the poor service and the other was attention to detail. I ordered the Beef Fajitas but when it was delivered I never saw the waitress until I was almost done. When I placed my order she didn't mention they were out of... More

Mediocre food...HORRIBLE service and rude staff. Is that how customers are treated in Columbia? I hope not!
