Dining on an outdoor terrace in Minca, Colombia which is located in a mountainous jungle with a river running below, WOW!!! Fantastic service, food and ambiance inside and out! Our server spoke wonderful english and even had menus with english translations - this was a very unexpected surprise for us because of the remote location of Minca, 4 wheel drive vehicles make the rough trip almost pleasant.This beautiful town is also home to beautiful food thanks to the Lazy Cat!

Great little place overlooking the river in town. Good range of dishes at a reasonable price with the lovely owners. I dined the for at least five nights a worked my way through most of the menu.
Stand out where the Enchiladas with excelent guacamole.
