“Excellent Food in Modest Restaurant 1/2 Block from Malecon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

This restaurant is about 1/2 block up from the malecon in the small plaza of Puerto Lopez. It is a simple restaurant with about 8 tables under a grass roof. It's very funky but very comfortable as well.

The food is simple but very good. The skewers have a nice smoky taste and the arepas are tasty and huge.

The service is a bit bland...nothing wrong with it but nothing special.

“Delicious food, Fast wifi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

The food is delicious, and fresh and the coffee is fantastic. I love the namesake dish which is sort of like a tortilla bowl but made out of plantains with various stuffs in the middle (beef, beans and cheese, chicken etc.) They also have some of the best wifi in the village, great to peruse the internet over lunch, and a book exchange. Also, they serve fresh clean (washed in filtered water) salads which are so refreshing.

“A little different from the usual fare in Puerto Lopez.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

I can pretty much echo all the good things said about this Colombian cafe. Excellent location on a side street off the Malecon, great outdoor seating area with good people-watching. The menu has quite a few vegetarian options, the signature plantain dish with beans and cheese being a winner. The side salad was a letdown but won't stop us from going back tomorrow!
