“Best food in Colombia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Seriously. Being vegetarian, it's not easy to find something decent to eat in south america :) The chef (from holand) is very good - he keeps a short menu, but everything we tried on it was delicious. He prides himself with the pumpkin soup which indeed is something to write home about. Free wifi and happy-hour between 5-11pm.

“Best food and service in Taganga!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

Excellent value for money. Quality food and great service. Babaganoush is hidden away above the dive school but make sure you seek it out. I worked my way through the whole menu while I was in Taganga (different days of course).

“Attentive service, beautiful food, lovely setting with views over the bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

I came here with my girlfriend for a valentines meal last week. She had very tasty pumpkin soup and finest melt in your mouth Lomo Fino (fillet steak), I had a very good falafel salad to start and a beautiful piece of fish with potato dauphinoise. We finished with yummie crumble for desert and the chef came out to chat with us at length at the end of the meal and gave us a free coffee. All this for 23500pesos each - WOW! Best value, best food in Taganga without doubt. Not to mention some of the best restaurant service I have experienced in Colombia and the view is high up over the bay of Taganga. Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

The menu is excellent value, at 23.5k COP for full 3 course meals. Portions are large and you will not leave hungry. Individually not as well priced, so worth taking the menu. Nice views as well. The chef came out a few times to check on us, very friendly.
