The menu is very varied and the food is of very good quality and on weekends in the evenings there is live music and you can dance salsa dancing music that enchants the Caleños. Very good plan and very comfortable prices. This is how you dance in Cali.

I came here with my friends from Holland to show them typical food from this region. We ordered a steak medium rare and a picada with various meats and potatoes.

The meat and potatoes on the picada looked old and dry as if it were reheated. The steak was cooked well-done, not even close to medium rare. When we told the server he insisted that we ate it anyway. We refused and asked him to talk to the chef. He came back saying that if we insist on returning it that the chef's would take it out of his salary. We had to personally bring the plate back to the chef and complain before they would change it.

The second steak was much better, but still appalled by the quality of the food in general and the service.

We were on a city tour and I asked our Driver Gustavo to choose a traditional Colombian Restaurant for Lunch. We drove down some industrial streets until we arrived at Tardes Callenas a huge restaurant and bar frequented by upscale Colombians. A five page menu included beef,fish,chicken and shellfish choices. Our meals came out perfect, prices were reasonable and services were great. On Fridays and Saturdays there is a salsa show starting at 2100 hours. No cover charge but there is a drink minimum.

Address Cra.46 #9-20

This restaurant closed my business trip in Cali with a wonderful Salsa Night. As a Brazilian, it was a very nice experience to learn a little bit from Salsa and meet some locals.
The food is average to good, but the animation of the place made my night experience a lot fun!
Recommend!

Amazing place.
If you like to live the party experience as we Caleños like it (rumba caleña) you cannot miss Tardes.
On weekend nights the hole experience is marvelous. You get to eat delicious typical Valle del Cauca food and can enjoy a variated show that includes good latin orquestas, mariachis, 60s bands and others. If you desire it can you order your favorite drink and have a heck of a fun night dancing and departing with friends and love ones.
The place has good security and even if the people is drinking you don't get bothered by others. It feels really nice.
We celebrated my mother's 60 year old birthday here and it was an unforgettable night.
