Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went to Kilians for a family celebration and everyone's food was excellent. Smoked salmon and Patacones with garlic sauce appetizers were fabulous. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The menu had a large selection and they even baked a chocolate cake ahead of time for us for the occasion. Highly recommend. Beautiful surroundings as well.

One of our guests who recently rented our villa, Villa Ibis in Buenaventura, and recommended us to eat at Kilian as they were very impressed with the quality of the food. So we tried it for lunch on Valentines Day and again just recently in the evening. The chef and his wife are Venezuelan and clearly have excellent training in food and service. The whole experience both times was amazing. The food was fresh and very tasty and we were knocked out by the quality of the presentation and attention to detail. The Ceviche, Peruvian style, is delicious and comes with with a bowl of crispy plantains. The Fish was beautifully seasoned and cooked and the Prawns were also cooked to perfection. They make their own very high quality pasta. The truffle Risotto that sampled by our Italian friend was superb. We had a little dessert too, just to be extra naughty! Also outstanding. Highly recommend this

W.O.W. I woke up thinking about the ravioli. I was with a large group for dinner and Killian's exceeded any expectations. I will be returning here very soon. The spinach ravioli stuffed with ricotta cheese was outstanding, as were all the other dishes I saw being served around me. Five Big Stars - p.s. this is my first review and I have eaten at a lot of restaurants. I had to write something, it was that good.

What a PEACEFUL LITTLE SPOT! Not much signage and came across it accidentally- but what a treat! The owners are a delightful couple - he is the chef and knows what he’s doing - great tastes, presentation and homemade freshness. Spanish and English spoken. Hoping we will have the chance to return before we return home to Canada.

We came here at recommendation of B&B owner where we are staying nearby. The restaurant is set back off the main beach road about 200 meters down a sand driveway. Plenty of parking. The place was quiet and big enough to accommodate several tables. Good selection on the menu for dinner. Prices are reasonable. We had the paprika fettuccine with shrimp and the 1/2 baked chicken. Both dishes were tastefully prepared. Drink selection and prices are competitive.

Kilian was an excellent choice and we recommend it very highly. An earlier review spoke highly of the risotto with truffles, and we agree wholeheartedly. We also had the fish of the day and it was fantastic. I believe it was Corbina. The staff was attentive and friendly, and the ambiance was superb. it is an outdoor dining area under a grass hut. It is large, well-lit, and the tables are not close to each other, so you can have a nice private experience.

Both of us were skeptical but willing to give it a go. Lots of positive reviews, and they were spot on. Outdoor dining, terrific food and wonderful staff. Kilian was the only restaurant in our 6 weeks we visited twice...and looking forward to going back...what a find...it was.
