The restaurant's nice looking dining room attracted us as we wandered around looking for somewhere for a light lunch. Ordered the simple burger with chips which was massive. Plenty other options to choose from. Good food, friendly service and decent value.

we stopped in for lunch on a busy weekend and ended up really enjoying the place. the vibe was local and colombian and the majority of the clientele were also colombian tourists versus western tourists, which i always enjoy seeing. there was a super talented older gentleman playing guitar and singing colombian folk songs in the corner and he was...

Went to VdL for a weekend and went for dinner at Carnes y Olivas! The place was deserted at dinner, we were hungry so decided to stay. The service could improve a lot, my Churrasco and the roasted potatoes were OK, but la "Limonada de Coco" needed some serious help. It is a competitive restaurant market over there, Carnes y...

Good restaurant, doesn't look much but the food and service was good. We ordered pasta, every dish was very good and plenty. The place lacks character and decor but makes it up with service and the food. Recommended.

Very convenient and tasty place to eat while visiting this picturesque village. Delicious, meats, chicken, and other traditional Colombian dishes. Very attentive service and cozy atmosphere. Step up into restaurant off the street makes for difficult wheelchair access, but then the cobblestone streets would be very difficult to maneuver a wheelchair in the first place. Reasonably priced.

We really enjoyed our lunch here sharing the meat platter between two. Delicious! One of the better meals so far in Colombia. Big variety of different meats cut into bite sized pieces accompanied by plantain and corn. Don't forget to ask for some 'chimichanga' sauce if you like spice. Good service, very clean, lots of locals, and good food; what... More

I can't comment on the menu del dia that receives many reviews here because we go to eat at this restaurant just for the baby beef. If you have an urge for a nice piece of grilled meat, french fries and salad then you will find it hard to beat this place. Just turn a blind eye to school canteen... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel manager and didn't disappoint. It was full of Colombian visitors eating great food at moderate prices.

We were in this tourist town for 24 hours and ate here twice. It was wonderful. Good food and live music. Both days we had the executivo which is a $5 usd meal that includes fresh fruit juice made with bottled water, main course with 2 sides, soup, salad bar and dessert. It changes everyday!
