Had a marvelous lunch date with my husband. As a starter, we ordered the shrimp with alioli de maracuja which was delicious. As main dish, we recommend the maduro ravioli with brie with a butter of dried tomatoes. Their freshly made bread is delicious. One of my favorite restaurants in Cali.

I arrived because a local customer recommended it to have a different dinner, so we arrived and I thought that it would be another regular experience in a fusion cuisine restaurant but, the first thing that sent me signals that it was above the expectations was the decoration from the place, a small old house with a very particular touch....

I went for dinner with my husband. As appetizer, we ordered the fried ravioli with chontaduro and a not so spicy sauce that was delicious. As main dish, we had the ravioli with maduros and brie cheese. Super delicious! Good wine selection and service. My only complaint is that the table they had reserved for us two was a total... More

This was a great meal, food wise. The restaurant itself is divided into many smaller rooms, and while the decorations and ambience are thoughtful and spot on (keeping with the don quixote theme) , some of the tables are a little cramped, including the one we were seated at, with barely enough room for the 3 of us to sit...

We are very happy that we discovered this tasteful restaurant near Parque del Penon, because the cuisine was a delicious fusion of Colombian and International served in a friendly and attractive environment of creative decor.

This is probably one of the best restaurants in Cali. The chef is a master and a mixer. Her exquisite sense of flavor mixture and fusioned flavors, gives this restaurant 5 stars. The chontaduro ravioli, the pig skin (placer del cerdo) and the octopus are my all time favorites. The tuna as well but we all know that tuna is... More

We were a bigger group, might be that for this reason my dish was a bit to cold, service is very good as in many parts of Colombia. Ideally for anniversary, but also for business dinner, thought prices are above the average in this area.

The restaurant is located near La Tertulia and close to the Rio Cali. It is hidden and it's hard to spot. The dining room is quaint with art work reminiscent of Cervantes' Don Quixote but with a modern touch. Even the restroom (men's) is painted with Quixotic themes and 3D art that shows a horse flying into the restroom! The... More
