I visited last week this incredible restaurant. I felt like home because the environment suits the concept of the restaurant: open, warm, comfortable without losing the elegant taste in the decoration. The food was the best: it really made me taste the most delicious Colombia flavors. I will definitely come back soon!

At our table we had a couple of toasts with various toppings which were tasty, but very overpriced for the portions served for brunch. One of our friends had the banana pancakes which were very tasty, probably the best dish at our table. It is in a nice courtyard, and serves beer and wine for the evenings. Service was very good, but not many tables when we were eating brunch.

The hostess was not receptive to our needs. There was not enough wine and the service was poor. Not enough staff to serve 50 people. Food arrived cold and werent served dessert until 11:50. Very strange! The price was too high for what we received.

From the ambiance to the taste of the chef. Amaranta care to the bone in making sure you get the best possible experience. A must in villa de leyva. Pollo Amaranta, paila al sartén and cuajada con melado would make your visit unforgettable

This place combines a delicious menu and a beautiful and comfortable location in Villa de Leyva, which are not common to find together.
