They claim to be a "local food" joint. It´s ... 60%. Problem is, overpriced. Local food tend to be must cheaper. Try Patio Valluno instead.

El Arca is a great, little restaurant that overlooks the park. It has outside seating and the staff was very friendly. The best thing about this restaurant is the concept - every dish is based on a plantain. You can get Platanos Verdes, Muduras, and Pintons. The food was delicious!!! It is also one of the only places open after 5pm on a Sunday. I highly recommend this place, and only regret that I got to eat here once!

I have been in this restaurant in Bogota and Cali; it offers a variety of plantain recipes that goes from green to ripe plantain; its dishes are a combination of traditional Southwester Colombian cuisine and contemporary flavors as Teriyaki sauce. Some of the Southwester dishes are Marranitas, small pieces of crunchy pork skin wrapped in green plantain, and Aborrajados ripe plantain filled with white cheese, both recipes are deep fried. It also offers some traditional beverages as Champus that is lulo's (Colombian fruit) juice with corn, pineapple and cinnamon. It is a great place to taste contemporary Southwestern Colombian cuisine, do not miss it.
