“Do not miss the Coffee Pie!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

We had a great meal here. The atmosphere is great and staff seems to love their work and the are laughing and having fun. Do not miss the cakes. We had the chees cake and the wonderful (but huge :) coffee pie! Don't miss that! Also the 10 minutes walk in the afternoon from South West Beach is totally worth it both for lunch or just a great milkshake. Strongly recommended!

What else can you say that hasn't been said!

The restaurant is owned by a woman from Canada and her husband,is located on the road to South West Bay it is a small viewless Restaurant but don't let that fool you! It is the best food you can get on the Island! The food ranges from g seafood to pastas.The creole sauce is so good you should be able to buy it! . And for desert don't you dare to miss the Cappuccino pie, is to die for!

“My favorite in Providencia”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This small restaurant in South West Bay (about 6 tables inside, and a terrace aside) offers great seafood and pastas. It is run by a canadian and her raizal husband, both very friendly. Langosta 45-60.000 COP, Island Crab Stew 23.000 COP. Don' miss the fresh Mango juice! Beside the good food the ambiente in this restaurant is great, relax music (Frank Sinatra etc.), good service and the fact that you see inside the kitchen are only a few aspects that make you feel good.
Conclusion: My absolute favorite restaurant on the island, favorite dish Pasta with crabs as well as the Island crab stew.

Dieses kleine Restaurant in South West Bay ( ungefähr 6 Tische, plus eine nicht überdachte Terrasse) bietet sehr gute Meeresfrüchte und pastas. Das Restaurant wird von einer Kanadierin und ihrem Raizal Mann geführt. Languste 45-60.000 COP, Island Crab Stew 23.000 COP. Der frisch Mango Saft ist ein absolutes Muss! Neben dem guten Essen ist auch das Ambiente überragend, relaxierende Musik, guter Service und die familiäre Atmosphäre tragen unter anderem dazu bei.
Fazit: Mit Abstand mein Lieblingslokal auf der Insel, am besten schmeckte mir die pasta mit Krabbenstew, sowie die Island Crab als solches.

Ce petit restaurant à South West Bay ( environ 6 tables et une terrasse à côté) offre des fruits de mer traditionnels et des pastas. Le restaurant est géré par une canadienne et son mari Raizal. Langouste 45-60.000 COP, Island Crab stew 23.000 COP. Le jus frais de Mango est à souligner! A côté du fait qu'on y mange bien, l'ambiance est géniale, dû au fait que le restaurant est très petit et familier, la musique bien relaxante et le service très sympa.
Conclusion: Mon favori sur l'île, le menu favori sont les pastas avec crabbe ainsi que le Island crab stew.

“Best food experience on Old Providence.”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

We happened to drive by Cafe Studio one day and saw that all 8 tables were full and there were people standing around to be seated. Being the curious folks that we are, we looked at the menu and said we'd be back. Boy that was an understatement. During our 10 day stay on the island we ate here frequently, sometimes even twice a day. Lonely Planet wasn't kidding when it said it is the best restaurant on the island! The restaurant is run by chef Wellington and his wife Mary. A lovely couple who treat visitors as if they are family. There are so many wonderful dishes on the menu to try but I will mention the ones we adored. The fry and stew is a must try. First the fish is fried and then sautéed in a sauce of tomato, garlic, peppers and oil. It's Wellington's signature creole sauce and should be bottled it's that good. I was a big fan of the lobster pasta in creole sauce. It's quite filling and you get a generous portion of tender, flavorful lobster. The conch in creole sauce is also delicious, tender and perfectly cooked. My husband really enjoyed the fish filet in creole sauce, it's a light dish perfect on hot days when you don't want to feel too full. As you can see we really loved everything here. I am not one to eat sweets but again on the advice of Lonely Planet I had to try the cappuccino pie. Wow! A generous slice of yummy deliciousness is all I can say. I may have actually developed a sweet tooth. Thanks Mary!! I can't say enough good things about Cafe Studio and it's wonderful owners. We've never felt so at home at a restaurant. This is the place to go when on Old Providence Island. We will miss it terribly.
