“Nice place in Taganga”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

We were driving around Taganga looking for a place to have a nice dinner and found this restaurant, owned by a french lady and her colombian husband, so we were told!
Food was excellent , shrimps wrapped in bacon and fried camembert, the waitress, a girl by the name of Lina and Carlos, the bartender were just great, very friendly and helpful with both food and drinks.
Worth visiting again but next time I'll go for the steaks that looked very tasty.

“Go for happy hour”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

Just off the main beach drag in Taganga.

Went on a Friday night- I believe at 9? For their happy hour-- half off cocktails. This is an event I highly recommend. Flavored mohitos, margaritas, and other fruity drinks, plus Cuba Libres and other more basic concoctions. The bartender is rather slow, but that's because these drinks are made with care. The maracuya mohitos will melt away your problems. Delicious.

Great atmosphere.

“Hard to find but worth the visit”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Make sure you check out this very cool spot for some tapas and great atmosphere. The drinks were properly prepared and the meal was excellent. The location was a bit hard to find but Taganga is a small town, so it wasn't a huge challenge. Nevertheless, it's not on the main beach strip so make sure you look/ ask for it.

“Great burger; very slow service; nice cocktails”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

All of the food was good here (although there is not much choice for vegetarians). The pasta dishes were fairly large.

The cocktails were good, but took a very long time to arrive. You wouldn't want to be in there if it was very busy!

“GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!! Canned food!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

We ordered the Salad Du Chef and the Pasta du Chef. Nothing on the Salad plate was fresh. The musrooms were brown. But the pasta was even worse. Pasta Du Chef was made in tomato sauce...from a can, Musrooms..from a can, and olives...from a can.
I talked to the chef about it, and he just shrugged, said he couldnt get anything fresh in Taganga (there are plenty of supermarkets in Santa martha one kilometer from here). After that the whole staff got really nasty on us, so we left immediately. These people use the words "French Chef" to attract a crowd, but the food is the worst of whole taganga! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!
