Very simple and family owned. I liked the good and service. The lady, I believe the owner, was very nice. I had their lunch. Rice, beans, fried fish and plantain.it was really awesome. I had natural poison fruit juice also. Good place to try.

I love this place. I go there about once or twice a week. The Bandeja montanera is my favorite plate closely followed by the arroz con pollo. Everything has a special "home made" touch to it. They also have Colombian juices. I recommend this place to anyone who likes or wants to try authentic Colombian food!

The restaurant is very simple inside, no fancy decorations or anything. The food is great. great home style cooking from Colombia, great for people who may want to try an international dish. The most typical dish there is the bandeja paisa... this dish includes rice, pork, beans and eggs. It looks like a breakfast, but is a typical colombian dish.... More
