We visited this gem and were very impressed. Good prices for the quality and quantity of food they serve, but what topped it off for me was the chef specifically made a meal to suit all my food allergies. He came to the table, more than once, to keep checking what I could and couldn't have so he could make... More

We enjoyed a 4 course meal with a glass of champagne for 45 000 COP. It included a beef carpaccio, cold melon soup with prosciutto, filet mignon (excellent!) and a brownie with ice cream as dessert. Service was very good and food excellent. Good value for your money, would definitely recommend! If you dont have a reservation, go early! We... More

Went out for dinner with my boyfriend. They have nice food with good vegetarian options. There is cocktail happy-hour from 5 till 10, the gin and tonics were amazing!There was a three course menu available for about 37.000 pesos (December 2016). And the best of all was the service! Very friendly and looking after you well. Would recommend! Gracias

The kitchen doesn't open until 630, but they'll let you order cocktails and watch the sunset starting at 5. A great place to spend a nice long evening with delicious food.

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!
