I orderd the trout, but it was extremely dry, old and fried in really old oil, so was the fries. I had pain in my stomach for the next 3 hours. Can not believe this is number 2?!

Really enjoyed sampling this local specialty & it was great sitting on the 3rd floor overlooking the lake. The service was quick & friendly.

Has the babe beef dinner. Served with lots of potatoes and a tiny salad. Beef was tasty and cooked rare though I ordered it medium. Took forever to get the bill with wait staff standing around chatting. And then the credit card machine did not work. Was ok but wouldn't go outta my way to visit this place.

Just recommend it to try while in Guatape for delicious grill meat. We had baby beef and ribs. Both were very good.

Opposite the boat terminal and overlooking the lake. Efficient service and local homemade food. We had soup which came with arepas.

We had a very satisfying lunch on the second floor of La Fogata, with a superb view of the Lago de Guatape (and the groups of zipliners sailing by above the lake).

My partner ordered one and it was delicious. Our waiter was also friendly and attentive. We sat on the top floor and had... More

Delicious meat...altough the fish was overbaken and too greasy. Their speciality is the meat parriladas and they have the delicious "Colombia Club Trigo" beer. Recomend their meat plates

The food was ok, but nothing more. It is quite annoying that all the trucks pass by...the staff is nice too.
