Taganga has a good selection of dinner choices, but we kept going back here for their BBQ. All of the dishes on the BBQ menu were fantastic, especially the beef. It is well priced, the portions are good and the food is nicely creative with fresh salads, potato salad and marinated meats. The mojito slushes are great, the coffee is one of the best in Colombia and the hosts are friendly and good company. Highly recommended for dinner.

My friend and I had breakfast here. She had the muesli and I had the egg salad sandwich. A bit too much mayo but excellent bread. Muesli was also good but tiny for the price. Bad coffee and good fruit juices. Probably wouldn't eat here again as there are better value places around.

With it's Tottenham scarves, scandinavian newspapers, mulitlingual book exchange, 60s business cards and the oh-so-tempting menu of worldly specialities, you'd be pushed to find a place more à la mode in Taganga, perhaps even the whole of Colombia! This place is a great little find, that welcomes you in, and has you browsing the huge chalkboard menu for hours undecided. The staff are lovely and the prices are good for what you're getting. A must for anyone staying any amount of time in Taganga! We went today for the first time and are likely to become regulars!

we set here for breakfast. the coffee was ok nothing more, it was served in filthy glasses.
the omlet was ok. the yogurt was gooey and in room tempature. actually the food is not really the issue. the place is not clean at all. inside it was stuffy so we decided to sit outside on the small balcony the place was full with flies!!!
we ate as quickly as we can and left the place.
