Best restaurant on the island for dinner. Delicious fresh seafood with buzzing ambience. Try the crayfish cocktail then grilled catch of the day in ginger butter. One or two somewhat surly members of staff, notably the cashier, but the hospitality of hostess Nayshelly (who I'd marry in the morning!) and the quality of the fare more than compensate. Live music... More

Another recommendation from Hotel Deep Blue. Very easy to find, driving south towards Freshwater Bay, the restuarant is found on the left as you enter the town. It cannot be missed - a large collection of empty wine bottles decorate the entrance area. Great food and apparently entertainment most evenings. Booking necessary for the evenings!

My wife ordered the coconut crayfish and I had the grated shrimp as I didn't want to repeat the same dish. To my expectations, both had an amazing taste. Would recommend this restaurant and these two dishes anytime. I had already been there a couple days before and had ordered something no so 'from the island', that is, 'spaghetti bolognesa'... More

A great place we discovered on our first day on Providencia. We then returned 6 more times, because we loved it so much. The service is nice and speaks English and Spanish. They were always helpful and accomodating with all extra wishes and questions. The restaurant has a good choice of different foods on the menue, mainly fish but also... More

During our 6 days on the beautiful island of Providencia we ended up eating at this restaurant 4 times, simply because the quality of food was superb and value for money overall very good (keep in mind that most food and products have to be imported from the mainland, which make them quite expensive for Colombian standards). As main dishes,... More

Wow - amazing service, atmosphere and food. Live music both nights I went. Try the garlic lobster, or the coconut conk {not on the menu, but you can ask for it if its in season}. Just delicious and an absolute must! Make sure you reserve a table. Even on a Monday it was completely full.

The food is really amazing and there is a great variety of options. You cannot miss the Coconut pie dessert. The service is one of the best that I have found during my visit to Providencia.

We really enjoyed our meal at Caribbean Place Donde Martin. I had the camarones 'prawns' in a garlicky cheesy sauce which comes with a side of coconut rice, French fries and a salad (a generous portion of camarones). My boyfriend had a fish fillet in a ginger sauce (which came with the same side as above). Both absolutely delicious and... More
