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

Went here for dinner, food was average and staff was not very interested in providing service. Very simple place, prices too expensive for the quality.

Nice food, nice service. We went there two days in a row. The food seens to be fresh and well cooked. If you don't wanna local food, they have international options that can satisfy you. Recommend it!

Dont order spageti bolognese and don't order the chicken burger (the chicken was not nice at all: a lot of bones and fat). The shrimps with currysauce, the cheviche and the meat hamburger were good though. So depending on what you order you will get good or really not tasty food! The waitress wasn't friendly at all (althought we came... More
