We were a group of 5, went to dinner on purpose Monday night, it was quiet and a nice ambiance - Lovely background music. Our experience was excellent! Worth every dime. Every dish was surprising, appealing to our tastebuds, exploring different flavors (typical of Colombian cuisine) mixed in with international flare! Aside from what we ordered, our server came out...

We enjoyed the place so much that we went twice in four days. The cuisine is very creative, but always close to Colombian tradition. Service is impeccable. A must try.

Had a marvelous lunch date with my husband. As a starter, we ordered the shrimp with alioli de maracuja which was delicious. As main dish, we recommend the maduro ravioli with brie with a butter of dried tomatoes. Their freshly made bread is delicious. One of my favorite restaurants in Cali.

I arrived because a local customer recommended it to have a different dinner, so we arrived and I thought that it would be another regular experience in a fusion cuisine restaurant but, the first thing that sent me signals that it was above the expectations was the decoration from the place, a small old house with a very particular touch....

I went for dinner with my husband. As appetizer, we ordered the fried ravioli with chontaduro and a not so spicy sauce that was delicious. As main dish, we had the ravioli with maduros and brie cheese. Super delicious! Good wine selection and service. My only complaint is that the table they had reserved for us two was a total... More

This was a great meal, food wise. The restaurant itself is divided into many smaller rooms, and while the decorations and ambience are thoughtful and spot on (keeping with the don quixote theme) , some of the tables are a little cramped, including the one we were seated at, with barely enough room for the 3 of us to sit...

This is probably one of the best restaurants in Cali. The chef is a master and a mixer. Her exquisite sense of flavor mixture and fusioned flavors, gives this restaurant 5 stars. The chontaduro ravioli, the pig skin (placer del cerdo) and the octopus are my all time favorites. The tuna as well but we all know that tuna is... More
