I was here for Valentine's Day and we enjoyed it. Servings here are large. We shared a shrimp patacon... a local dish of shrimp in a mild cream sauce served on a bed of deep fried plantains. The flavor was good, but like most food here, rather mild. It was a nice change, but I will return to cerviche tonight.... More

We came here off the back of the reviews and were disappointed. I love patacones and patacone pizza seemed very promising but the accompanying prawn dish we had was a little bland. We also had an arepa with beans and cheese which was quite disappointing, also quite bland for our taste, and the prices felt very much geared to tourists... More

7.50 for low quality chicken smeared on a soggy arepa? Forget it! Bad place. Much better places to eat in town for half the price

Located on one of the side roads leading off the Malecon, this is a local restaurant serving Colombian cuisine, very informal in style. We opted for two traditional dishes, Shrimp Patacones (fried plantain, their signature dish) in a traditional Hoga’o sauce and Chicken Arepa a type of maize pattie. Both dishes were good and very filling. Service was slow but... More

Very casual setting. I ordered café and chocolate crepe and watched as a large "front loader" tore down the fire station across the street. Great free entertainment! The crepe was good too.

Puerto Lopez has just a few restaurant options and you should not expect anything fancy. Having said this, Patron Pisa'o is one of the nicest options in town if you like patacones, which are a typical Colombian dish based on fried green plantains with some kind of topping. I went there twice during my trip and tried a few of... More

Wonderful food and drinks, ate there twice, great meals both times, they coffe drinks are fabulous. I also went a couple more times with friends not feeling too well, they made a good herbal tea that helped both my stomach and sore throat. Highly recommend a visit to thier place.

We expected a lot from all the positive reviews and were a bit disappointed. The patacon was good and large, but the filling a bit bland in flavors. Salad just some leaves of lettuce 3 tomatoes and 3 slices of cucumber.. The apate with squid was good after adding lots of hot sauce. Beer was a good price.

One of the great challenges we have every day is to make our proposal of typical Colombian food appreciated. We regret that it was not what you expect and we hope that for an upcoming occasion we will be able to surprise you in a positive way. Thank you very much for your comment More

Love this place, especially since I am gluten-free and most of their options are made with plantain instead of wheat. I've been in Ecuador for 3 years, and they have the most delicious and largest frappuccinos I've found in in Ecuador.

Perhaps the most flattering of the comment is to hear that a person who does not drink coffee, is delighted with ours. You have made us happy. Thank you! More
