Went to Bitacora several times during our stay in Taganga and tried quite a few dishes on the menu. Everything we had was very tasty with very reasonable prices. Especially loved the robala fish fillet, the fresh juices and the fruit salad with yogurt&granola for breakfast.

I went here for dinner on a Sunday night during the high season. The service was terrible. And not in the busy/overworked sort of way. The server ignored me for at least 15 minutes and then gave menus to a table that arrived after me. Even we I caught his attention and got a menu he did not provide subsequent... More

Service was poor, got drinks without glass or straw. Waiter didn't really seem to care. Didn't check on the tables so we had to go inside if we needed anything. Ordered vegetarian pasta with pesto, which was more like a full plate of spaghetti with some pesto-ish taste maybe, and very sticky/dry, no vegetables. Boyfriend had lasagna, was more like... More

Ok, but really nothing special aside the location. They forgot two out of our six dishes and took forever to bring them when we reminded them. Pretty busy, so maybe a one off mistake. Food is ok, but there's plenty of choice with better fayre around.

The beer chicken is really good, burgers are cheap and not amazing but definitely worth 11,000 with fries, ate there a few times for lunch, I recommend it

We stopped for lunch after a long day diving. Needless to say we were starving by the time we got there. It was recommended by a local. We ordered some fresh squeezed mango juice and lemonade which were delicious. We decided to order the Mero a la Plancha and Robalo(bass) a la Plancha with patacón. Both dishes were outstanding. Perhaps... More

Very good. The place has nice atmosphere and good food. I found vegetables sauté. Finally! Hamburgers seemed delitious. I'll try them today. The cocktails were excellent and costed half the price than in other similar places.
