Beverages are very tasty. Traditional drinks/ juices from Valle del Cauca, Cali area from Colombia. Next, the main menu with Patacones (salty and sweet) are very tasty and you can pick one or the other with almost any dish to your liking. Staff is polite...More

If you are a meet lover, I recommend the 'Lomo al Trapo' which is fantastic, otherwise any of the platain dishes are incredibles. A must have is the 'Lulada'! is the best juice is the world, if you like sour fruits.

This place had some of the best Maracuya juice I had in Bogota, along with a great cappucino. Definitely recommend any of the dishes served over plaintains sliced and stuffed with cheese.

If you like plantains (patacones/tostones) this place is worthwhile visiting. They offer thinly-sliced green plantains with a few options (salsa, suero, avocado?) to dip them into. Loved my dish, which was another green plantain with beef and salsa.

This place has traditional Cali style food. It is amazing. Very authentic. Prices are pretty cheap for the amount of food you receive. The service is pretty good, as good as you can expect. Overall this place is worth a shot.
