The food was spectacular! Some of it almost seems like a mix of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine and it worked very well. Lots of great options for vegetarians.

Pleasant courtyard seating in common area shared by three different restaurants. We had two separate combination platters so all told we tried about 15 different dishes. We thought everything was very good/tasty other than the falafel. Our server was quite pleasant.

Lovely staff fitted us in on a busy NYE. Food was very good and we never felt rushed to leave despite a constant stream of hopeful diners. Recommended.

We got to VDL really hungry and Zarina was a place we found fast. We didn't expect anything and the food was really good, specially the trout with almond sauce.

We absolutely loved this restaurant. The place is beautiful, inside Casa Quintero which is a huge colonial house with many other restaurants and shops, and right off the main square in Villa de Leyva.

Menu does not change much, but what they have is overall very good. Arroz especial is fantastic. Service OK (not great), this is a small place. Worth it

We saved visiting Zarina until our last night as we had read quite a few great reviews. Never mind the food, the service was terrible and for this reason after our overpriced starter we decided not to stay for mains.
