Unfortunately our worst meal in a fortnight in Colombia - the sort of tourist-oriented restaurant that we generally manage to avoid these days, thanks to Trip Advisor. A long menu of apparently traditional Colombian dishes, most of which seemed variations on the meat and beans theme; none of ours were served with any finesse, and only just met the standard of comfort food. On the plus side, friendly and efficient service though; and low prices as just about everywhere here.

The food was authentic and they had options from various Colombian regions. My kiddos, who are somewhat picky-eaters, were happy with selections and the grown ups enjoyed it as well. Went back for a second visit during our trip and the food continued to be amazing. Service was very friendly though a bit slow, but I found that to be typical of restaurants in the area. The decor was also a plus, great atmosphere.

We ordered chicken, strak and sobrebarriga. The three dishes came with rice and potatoe wedges. The sobrebarriga was unedible. It had a bad taste. We returned it and they changed it for normal steak. The chicken was raw. They apologised and said that happened a lot! The bill came with items we haven't ordered. It took long to sort it out, more apologies. Slow service in veneral. The food was not good. I don't recommend this place.

Hace un par de años era un excelente restaurante... la experiencia de hoy fue desastrosa... el pedido tardo más de una hora en llegar. El lugar estaba saturado de gente, los meseros no sabían organizarse, se les acabaron algunos productos, las administradoras no solucionaban problemas... los platos son caros para lo que son...
lastima porque fácilmente podrían ser uno de los mejores restaurantes de Villa de Leyva.

A few years ago this restaurant was excellent... but our experience today was awful and very disappointed. Our order took more than one our in arrive, the place was so crowded, the waiters were so disorganized, out of stock in some of the menu items, the managers didn’t solve anything... and the prices were very high compared with the service and experience.
It’s a shame because they can be easily one of the best restaurants in Villa de Leyva.
