My boyfriend and I absolutely LOVED this place! The food is plentiful and delicious. The staff was very kind and attentive to us. We love the salsa/hot sauce they have there!! We wanted the recipe it was so good. The sangria was very nice also. I would definitely go there again.

In my opinion, this was the best restaurant on the island. Columbian fare in a clean place with a great wait staff. Food was great, prices were low. Better than any other place tried during our week in Aruba.

Wow. Where can I start. I had the small bowl of mondongo soup and it was a 15 out of 10. Plenty mondongo and hearty soup. We ordered a picada for 2 and it had pently chicharrones, arepas, patacones, chorizo, grilled chicken and churrasco. We could not eat it all. The beer was cold and the decor was very nice.... More

This is actually a regular place to eat for us but we never did a review for this restaurant. They have for example excellent lunch specials for Afl 13.00, about $7 per person, highly recommended and very tasteful! Their whole menu, and we have tasted almost everything, is very broad taste good, especially their breakfast. If you like Colombian cuisine,... More

When we got there they sat us right away, waitress came over offered drinks and on her return took our order. We asked if we could substitute French fries with patacon and it wasn't allowed which we understood... More

I visit the restaurant quite often, as I love the ambience and the food. It's quite simple colombian food, excellent taste and very nice service. Their daily options are great and the price is good and fair. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who likes colombian criollo food. By the way good tintico (black colombian coffee) too.

We were looking to try some authentic Colombian food and came across Don Jacinto. The location is off the beaten path - $12 cab ride from the Hilton. Cab driver told us she eats at this restaurant, and you could tell it was a local spot. My daughter and I both enjoyed the grilled chicken breast - pounded thin and... More

The place was about 10 minutes from the high rise hotels and no problems with the GPS. The place is very warm and traditional Columbian setting. The servers were very friendly and curiously attentive. The food was very tasty and the prices are fare. Overall we had a great time and would definitely recommend.

The food was plentiful, fast and inexpensive. We had sort of a tortilla made of plantains with fresh grated cheese, omelets, coffee, and other assorted Columbian style breakfast items.
