“Was not our favorite”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We were disappointed with the meal. There was way too much oil in the food as it pooled on the plate. The crab did not even taste like crab as it was way too salty and sat in oil.
The service was excellent and was a nice atmosphere though. They also had a nice wine selection.

“Good service, tasty meal”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I have nothing to complain about this restaurant. The food was very good, prices average. Service can be a bit slow but - hey, that's just the island vibe! Relax, enjoy your drink as you wait and go with the flow!

“Excellent restaurant with very friendly service”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

During our week on Providence we had several times lunch and dinner there.
The service was very friendly and quick, the menu offers everything from hamburger to lobster.
It was full every evening, so if you plan to go at rush hour, reserve a table.

“Best Meal We Had on Providencia”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

It can be hard to find a meal on Providencia that doesn't just consist of rice, fried fish, and fried plantains, so we were excited to try out the more interesting menu here. We had dinner here twice, and pretty much every dish was very tasty. One of our favorites was the dessert of "crepes arequipe," which were deliciously caramel-y! Good service, and they accept credit cards, which is nice if you realize you don't have enough Colombian pesos!
