We ate dinner last night in their courtyard. Service was superior. The pizza was delicious. They allowed us to modify toppings (half without cheese). Pizza arrived quickly. Dessert strudel was delicious and not too sweet. Furniture and garden area alone are worth a visit. But...More

The food is ok. Nothing to write home about. The prices are way too high. The place is beautiful. It is only opened at night, after 6:30 pm. There are other places to eat in Mompox that are just as good and less pricy.

Italian, Swiss, Austrian and Colombian. Very few places in the world can actually claim that their ingredients are fully home made. Even roasted coffee alone roasted cocoa. Curry sausage? No problem. Stroganoff? No problem. Pizza? Brick oven envy of many. Bring cash though.

It's a rather expensive place for what you get. The food is OK, but not worth it's price. Service is cold, lacking all empathy. Asking to add something to a dish is met with dislike and a rude attitude.

Very good food and drinks but we had to wait over an hour for a couple of pizzas! Music can be more local. You have to try the Mata Calor drink

This place is seriously overrated. We sat down, ordered and they said that since there were too many people we could order only pizza. The two pizzas came ONE HOUR later, completely burned and with no taste at all. We told three waiters, none cared....More
