Went here for their 2x1 happy hour. Good drinks, the ceviche was delicious and their paella is really great. One portion of paella is more than enough for two people (maybe even three!)

The food was a bit disapointing. We ordered salmon, which was dry, and the seafood spaghetti which was greasy and the seafood was chewy and not fresh. I think you can get much better food for the same price elswhere.More

You can get there very good sea food. It is nicely served in a hot caserole. The sea food mainly differs in the way it is prepared. We had the caserole, cascada, and paella de mariscos.

Dear Anton, thanks for visiting our restaurant, hope you enjoy the paella and our location. Normally we have a lot of clients, it depends on the hour and the date. The restaurant was established in 1975. Hope to see you again. Thanks for your comment.

The food was not good at all, the service was good. We personally don't recommend it, we did not like it at all. The prices for being in Colombia are expensive for the quality.
