This is one of those cozy, unique places, with a kind of special flavor to their, Colombian style food. The fruit beverages are a must, no pre-made pulp here; blended fruit with regular sugar, water and ice. The food is largely "finger food", like burgers and their famous arepas, but you can get grilled skewers or other typical dishes as... More

This is a great place for people to try Colombian food in Costa Rica. Bandeja paisa is great and the food is great in general... the prices are very good and the products have great flavor ... also the environment is so Colombian ... the weakness: parking for customers...

We had a late lunch/early dinner here. They happily accommodated a party of 10. The wait staff were very friendly and did all they could to make us happy. The food was great!!! And the prices were reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

Empanadas, meat cuts, potatoes, the sauces to combien those delicious meals are what makes this place the best. I love the fact they close very late so if you are anxious you can go and enjoy!
