Awesome dining with the big BBQ giving off a lot of great smells. Staff are on to it and always happy to offer some advice on how much is enough. Good option to share and try out their selection of rums!

Had a great meal with my two daughters last night. If you are looking for generous portions of authentic Columbian food then this is the place to go. Highlight for me was the short ribs, chicken was also amazing. Well worth a visit!
