A New York City chef turned restaurant owner in Taganga? You're in for a treat if you eat here. Loved it all, from food to drinks to views to service.

We ate at Babaganoush for lunch and were not disappointed. Great hummus and falafel. The view overlooks the bay and is quite breathtaking.

The food is excellent and for 35 thousand pesos (like 15-20USD) you can get a three course meal. The owner is an awesome guy too and love to chat with tourists!

Nice location with a beautiful view on the Carrebean sea. The best meat (Filet Mignon) I had in Colombia so far and a lovely presentation of the dishes. Very friendly owner and team. We really enjoyed this diner.

Myself and partner came for dinner and had been recommended by several people. We were not disappointed. The beef carpaccio was a really wonderful starter and the mains were also delicious. The owner, Patrick was a good host and was happy to give us recommendations for other places we are visiting in Colombia. Really worth a visit!!

This is maybe the best place to have lunch in Taganga. The food and service are great with the best view to the bay. Delicious dishes designed by the chef and owner Patrick and the relation of cost-quality is very affordable. Open just for the week ends strongly recommended. Enjoy it!!

After a long day of travel from Bogota to Baranquilla to Santa Marta filled with taxi rides, some shady looks, and too little food we needed a great meal not an average meal. Babaganoush delivered! As we walked up the stairs leading the rooftop restaurant I was a little hesitant about what we would find, but the stairs led to... More
