Had a great sandwich. Everything looks delicious. Friends had paella and weren't impressed with the flavor. The service was good and the bread they bring to the table was amazingly delicious. Could eat it alone with the tasty butter they provide with it. Lots of great looking stuff in the front display for quick and easy carry out.

There are a great variability of bakery options, sandwiches and pastries really delicious. Easy for a fast lunch or a good coffee in the middle of the day, but the service to the tables is very disorganized. To many steps for something as simple as choosing and paying. The service is terrible and the personnel not very friendly.

The food is good but the service to the tables is very disorganized; they don't know how to manage the number of tables they have. Expect long delays at the tables and possibly at the waiting line.

I had business meetings in Castellana and I appreciated the menu they offer. There are a great variability of options, and it is not necessary to wait too much time to be attended. It is important to try the typical Colombian arepas.

This restaurant has been packed every time, and no wonder. We have eaten there several times and the food is always good. Service is not the best, you have to be a little ppro-active. Good atmospher, good wines to choose from and everything from sandwiches to entrees.

Although today's breakfast was ok, it was nothing out of the ordinary. Yet the service and the attitude of the personnel is way below average. You have to be waving all the time for someone to notice that you need something, there is no proactive action at all. After being seated nobody stopped by for at least 10 minutes, I... More

The service of this restaurant is nothing to write about very regular ,the food is served cold,after a long wait. They also have a bakery on site which is better and cheaper than the restaurant.The food is not very tasty either.

I have only been there for breakfast, and it's really good. Traditional Colombian dishes, with generous servings. For example santafereño breakfast includes natural juice, fruit, beef, eggs, arepas and coffee. So many of us do not need anymore. I recommend especially the santandereano, wonderful tamales.

Thank IJustTravel
