This is one of my favorites! This is a very authentic restaurant and favorite of the locals. Quality is top notch and potions are huge. Live entertainment at night but not overpowering, a very nice place for couples and families.

There are a number of La Doctoras and each is excellent - they serve local dishes of a high quality so if you want to eat typical Paisa food, I would recommend La Doctora. The setting is normally in an open but roofed area to...More
