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.

I stopped in here for a late lunch, friendly staff and maybe Josephine! Fresh shrimp was good, a little expensive, but tasty

We had a wonderful evening savoring spicy coconut lobster and rice with our feet in the sand at Josefina’s. Great food, great ambiance, great service. We definitely recommend!

The Caribbean coast of Colombia boasts one of the nicest cuisines in the country, mixing African, Hispanic and Indigenous influences. Prominent in this cuisine are seafood and coconut sauce. Josefina is one of the most amazing cooks of this type of cuisine I've encountered after years of travelling the width and length of Colombia. The coconut rice, the fried plantain, the different fish and shellfish, in various sauces and presentations (garlic, breaded, coconut) is just perfect. I was really delighted to eat there every day at every meal during my stay in Capurganá. Don't expect anything fancy though -it is just a very simple house by the beach. But sure, to enjoy a delightful meal do you really need anything more?

After many great reviews and the recommendation in The Lonely Planet we thought we would get excellent fish at this joint. But the food is not really great. The pasta was way over cooked with messy BBQ sauce surrounding the shrimps. The fish soup also was very meh. Just heavy. Also not the coziest place, just some plastic chairs scattered around and people walking by.

Once you approach her little shop, you don't imagine the delicacies this woman can make. she specializes in different options than just fish; like crab and shrimp. It is a unique and excellent option. I've tried her shrimp ceviche, and it has been the best I've tried so far. Highly recommended!

Had dinner at Josefinas and it was exceptional. We had a shrimp ceviche to start and lobster and shrimp dinners. The food was nicely presented and was very delicious. This restaurant is on the beach just at the edge of town just a short walk from the pier.

Our Josefina has the best food on the beach in this town. Much better than other local establishments. Only open one of the three nights we were staying unfortunately. Try not to miss out

This is a little "hole in the wall" place on the beach, they have fresh lobster and crab on the menu. Owner is very accommodating, I wanted a lobster meal, but was afraid they would be sold out before I came back, she agreed to save one for me and asked what time we like to eat, it was being prepared as we arrived. My girlfriend does not care for seafood, so they prepared the pasta for her without seafood. The lobster meat was already out of the shell when served, it was very tasty, the pasta was also very good. They only serve beer for alcohol, but I am betting they would not mind if you brought your own wine.

This little place is right on the beach. Specializes in fish,lobster,shrimp. Always fresh. We could not get fish when we went because the sea was too,rough for the fisherman/owner to go out.

We heard great things about the crab at this restaurant but couldn't see it on the menu so asked Josefina if she had any. She pulled out a huge one caught that morning & said she could make us something from it if we were willing to wait. We obviously accepted & were delivered 2 exceptional (and very large) courses made freshly there & then by Josefina herself. We wished we were here another night so we could go back again!

Josefinas makes the best sea food in Capurganá and has a really good vibe at her beautiful beach restaurant. I've had dinner here several times and my favorite dish so far is the garlic shrimps. Ask for the most fresh fish or seafood of the day.

My husband and I ate here last night for our last meal in Capurgana. The food was amazing, I ate the Cazuela de Camerones (prawn stew) which was so tasty. Highly recommended!

The food was not that good and it cost twice as much as other places. The lady is nice and friendly, but the fish was not as good as promised. Plus the restaurant is located midway to the beach, and so there are a lot of people passing by and staring at you, since the tables are right in the way.
