Loved the place, the owners are very friendly, an the food is amazing.
Try the kibbes, tabbouleh, and tahine, or hummus dish is a great starter.
The pepper steak is fantastic too...

We ordered the meze plate and steak with pepper sauce.

If you love pepper sauce on your steak, you will love this one. Creamy but still with a little peppery heat. Perfect. It was served with rice, patacone & salad. The salad was also nicely dressed which you don’t always get.

The meze plate had a lovely assortment of fresh and tasty delights. Would have liked a bit more tabouleh or tahini, as it does all get a little dry.

The service was excellent too. Warm, friendly and efficient. Would surely go back.

Great food and awesome service by Tío Marco. The restaurant is in the heart of the walled city and perfect for lunch or a snack.

Soooo, an Englishman in Colombia, rocks up to Villa de Leyva New Years Eve -not quite realising what this means for the town in terms of visitors!- and manages through sheer fluke to end up sitting in the (shared) courtyard (great idea!!) of this restaurant. Not having the greatest of Spanish i was reassured to find the owners daughter spoke excellent English. An English menu was provided but better than that was the interaction with the owners/staff who were inquisitive of my food likes and gently passed on their recommendations (the "Charley" starter was goooooooodddddd). A family restaurant (the chef poked his head out briefly and said Hola but it was NY's Eve!) the ambience around the place is relaxing and the service was just how i like. Not too intrusive but willing to engage to whatever level i chose. This is Colombia and things move at a different pace as to being back in the UK. Wine list was good and the red we chose eased the evening along nicely! The food was (obviously) prepared by plate -Carlos the chef definitely takes great pride in this as my taste buds testified- and there was no "pushing" through, with the courses gently following at a nice steady pace -again just right given we sat down at 8ish and left around 11 for the fireworks in the square.
All in all (apart from maybe the fireworks) this meal/restaurant was the highlight of my visit to Colombia and as i said my wife and i are already planning a return to both Colombia and Zarina's later this year!!!!
