“great food”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

nice place, good menu, using the ants as a fundamental. The only observation: takes so long to prepare the meals, so come prepare to wait!

“The best ant-steak I've ever had :)”
Reviewed 7 September 2011

This restaurant is recommended all over the place (guidebooks, hostels, etc.) for their ant sauce. Indeed the steak with ants that I had was really very good. Not that I'm a connoisseur of ants, but they really were palatable. Defininetly worth a try. And the steak, salad, juice and bread were all excellent as well. This is definitely a more well-to-do restaurant than most in the area so prices are double or more what you'd pay elsewhere. But excellent service and environment makes it in my mind well worth it.

“Excellent place to try hormigas culonas”
Reviewed 21 December 2010

I just wanted to try hormigas culonas and as it was early this was one of the few places already open. The restaurant is located in a very pleasant house and staff was simply outstanding. I had a chicken breast in ant sauce - the sauce was nice and the ants crispy but overall it was a kind of unremarkable dish for the price. Not to say it was bad at all. Actually the only con I can think of is that some of the dishes on the menu (which is not really extensive) were not available. Been there in January 2010.

“Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice”
Reviewed 18 January 2010

We went to this restaurant recommended by the manager of the hotel where we stayed. I had steak with "hormigas culonas" sauce....

Ok... "hormigas culonas" are ants with fat [--].... they are very popular in the Barichara area (Santander)...

The food was absolutely beatiful.,.. nice presentation and the price was absolutely fantastic... We had steak and chicken with the fatt [--] ants sauce, fried banana, and salad + 3 beers + icecream for dessert.... and we paid... 60000 colombian pesos... about 30 dollars. Ok,,, it is not the cheapeast restaurant in Barichara but it is definetly worth going.

It is located 3 blocks from the main square.
