This gem of a restaurant by an extraordinary chef, who spends time researching and innovating like our Peruvian brothers started this restaurant with a concept which was far ahead of the times and customs of this city. It is an incredible and delicious learning experience.

It is an interesting place with great food, Colombian fusion. The cuisine explores the local food given them special taste by combining different products and ways of preparing it. There are not many dishes, but I have been there several times and none of them I had a dish I would not repeat. I like very much the tune fish... More

A restaurant that to my surprise does not enjoy of the popularity, as other restaurants in the city... Fantastic high cuisine with not so high cuisine ingredients. The owner Catalina Velez is a Gourmet channel correspondent, with multiple awards and a fantastic ability to create something completely new with everyday Colombian ingredients. I strongly recommend not ordering a main dish,... More

Dinner was perfect. Absolutely fabulous flavors, outstanding food, beautiful presentations. The récipes were original and unforgettable. Each plate had a combination of balanced ingredients where you could find delicate cuts of meat, fish, tuna, shrimp, duck or lamb, done at their right point, with perfectly achieved sauces and garnishing, including those with local ingredients used at their perfection.

We had a mixed experience form this visit. Tjhe owner previously had a similar lounge restaurant which we loved an frequented in 2004 and 2005. Now the restaurant changed a lot on the interior and a little on the menu repertoire, but unfortunately we happened to go there at an evening where the good chef was not present. The price... More

Had a meal there one, and sadly I needed to go back to England, but if not that, I would definitely would come there again. Fantastic food, lovely service and definitely worth all money I paid for my food. It wasnt expensive for us, but I think, that is a big amount of money for Cali people. Anyway, I would... More

Good seafood and quality cuts of meat are the basis for some very creative creations. Everything was delicious - just stay away from the unremarkable baby octopus. The service caps off the special experience.

We had the chance to go there last night. Excellent food and service. Had the salmon with passion fruit sauce to start and then my wife had the seared tuna with macadamia crust, red currant sauce and a plátano cake. I had the chicken wrapped with chorizo and a beer sauce with maíz cake. Both were really good but the... More
