The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, really peaceful, and the staff is really nice, professional and efficient. We had here a great dinner with high quality food: Guari Guari is maybe the best restaurant of the area in my opinion.

We stayed on Colon Island for 2 months and this by far was our favorite restaurant. Price fix, 5 courses, no choices, but wow. Everything is superb. Add to that the charming waitstaff, and this will be an experience you won't soon forget.
