Outside sitting, somewhat expensive, but yummy fresh ceviches. Friendly and efficient service. If you are not sure, just look inside in the kichen, and you will stay for a super lunch!

“Overpriced frozen shrimp”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

My husband and I went to this restaurant because it is lonely planet's top choice for restaurants in CTG, and were utterly disappointed. The prices are ridiculous - you cant find anything on the menu for less than 30,000 pesos. The place was cute but not appropriate for a dinner - too much light and kind of a fast food look. And most importantly the food was just depressing. We are from Mexico and know what ceviche is supposed to taste like. First of all you are supposed to actually cook the seafood in the lemon, whereas at this place they use frozen precooked shrimp (which are tiny) drowned in a super acidic lemon juice. We also had cevice dE pulpo which was a huge waste because you couldn't even taste the octopus with all that juice. And, we had camarones a la diabla as an appetizer and it was the exact same thing as the ceviche de camarones but with a few drops of bottled hot sauce. For these 3 dishes, a beer, and a water we paid more than 120,000 pesos.... If you have ever had ceviche or even any seafood in Mexico you will be utterly disappointed...

“Amazing, but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Yep, it's amazing ceviche and seafood. You're getting your money's worth. But definitely save this place for the night you want to "splurge" a little bit!

“Anthony Bourdaine could have picked better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

This place is located in an amazing spot.. Anthony Bourdaine chose it for his Colombia episode.. The food is ok.. But ain't thaaaat great.. However.. The owner is very nice, he organizes tours and his overwhelming friendliness and service balances everything out in his favor
