We had good dinner here in spite of the relatively poor ambience of the location. Feels like a big ban /sports bar, but has great menu and high performance kitchen. Had good local and regional flavours along with more conventional "AMERICAN" fare. Certainly recommended.

Without expecting a fancy place or fancy dishes, I was quite satisfied with the quality and quantity of the food I ordered. Good Colombian ajiaco soup, and a fish filet with some delicious small “papas criollas”.
