The El Patio restaurant and bar is located in one of the best parts of Medellin. From Thursday to Saturday, it offers karaoke music, and is an ideal place to test the cocktails and exquisite micheladas. Its' menu explores Mexican cuisine and is best enjoyed on the terrace, where you have an excellent view of the city.
This is a restaurant that serves typical food from the region. It is situated in an old house, adapted into the restaurant, with several rooms. At the entrance, we were served by friendly a friendly waiter who welcomed us, dressed in traditional clothes. When you enter, the first thing you see is a beautiful fountain in the middle of the central courtyard and tables arranged in the aisles, outdoors, there is a closed environment, with air conditioning. In my opinion, you loose the typical ambiance there. The smells from the kitchen, awaken all the senses. One thing, you should go early as it is very popular, if not you will have to queue. It's a restaurant with good food, good service, nice atmosphere, very colorful, cheap and with many different options.
Although all of the restaurants in Salento have the famous trout specialty, this is one of the cheapest options. For only 3 €, we had an opened and cleaned trout which was presented to us on a giant patacón that measured over 25 cm long. The trout can be prepared several ways and they´re all delicious: Golden, with garlic, with mushrooms, as a patty, or with cheese.
One of the most popular restaurants in the San Diego neighborhood is the Cevichería, a tiny premises with a very cool terrace on the street. They specialize is seafood prepared in delicious paellas (the Colombian!) In exotic ceviches and salads. The place also serves lobster, but it must be ordered 1 day in advance. What's the best drink of the Cevichería? The mojito.
In the Upper Centennial Park, City Terrace Ibague Tolima Art Museum, this cozy restaurant specializes in crepes, pasta and lasagna, plus varied fruit drinks, wines, beers and cocktails. Ideal for parties as a couple, family or friends. The best thing is the service.
We had a splendid evening at The Fort, an outstanding colonial structure with history and original ambience. The Austrian owner makes beautiful crafts and some of the best pizzas ever. It is on the Rio Magdalena, close to the Hostel Casa Amarilla. Ask Walter. Perhaps he'll show you the spectacular panorama from his viewpoint, the whale shaped roof on El Fuerte.
A small bar in the centre that hosts concerts of all kinds ... reggae, salsa, music from different parts of Colombia, jazz, etc ... it's a cozy place, with posters on the walls that are sure to catch your eye. The entrance fee for concerts is normally 8,000 pesos (less than 3 EUR) and the price of drinks at the bar is a little more expensive than you usually find in traditional shops (5,000 pesos beer, less than 2 EUR) but you can really enjoy the night!
Michel's Patisserie is one of my favorites in Bogota. Since its founding in 1976, I remember my father bought millefeuille and eclairs there, and over the years, every time I go to Bogota I try to visit it, and the flavors remain authentic. A couple of years ago they refurbished this local and it is now more chic and it is integrated into what is known as the Roa area of Bogota. It is a place to visit, and to treat yourself to one of the most authentic French pastries you can get in the city.
The restaurant is not missed. There's an island road that goes around and on the south-eastern tip lies this restaurant, perched above the sea, with a terrace. You can see the best sunset on the island. The specialties of the house are, of course, seafood and fried plantains, fried mashed plantains. They are delicious.
It is a restaurant where you can satisfy any cravings you may have, because the place has an extremely wide variety and it is very good. You can have meat, fish, sushi, soup, salads, pastas, among others. As well as desserts, you can have liqueurs and coffees. The service is high quality and the atmosphere is very nice. Highly recommended.
The beach bars located on the beach of [poi = 126229] Taganga [/ poi] are the best and cheapest places to eat. There are several of them, almost all are clustered where the fishing boats are, where they get therir supplies of fresh fish. You have to choose between different seafood varieties, the most typical is the delicious tilapia with rice, fried plantains and salad. You can also buy freshly squeezed juice at the street stalls.
When traveling, the best way to eat hearty, inexpensive, and delicious food, is to go where the locals eat. In Gethsemane, the popular and simple Coroncoro is always filled with cartagenos ve live in the neighborhood, so that's where I went. I had a typical dish, which consisted of vegetable soup and then a big plate of fried fish (an exquisite burel), salad, coconut rice and fried plantains. The delicious and abundant menu included a tamarind juice. All for howmuch? $ 4500, or less than 2 €.
If you're travelling on a budget but are hungry for some seafood, I'd suggest trying one of the local oyster stands which have been popping up all over the historical center of Cartagena. You can buy a small, medium or large cup filled with shrimp, prawns, mussels, oysters and other delicacies, all covered with a tasty tomato sauce. It's a good meal for only a few pesos. Recommended!
I loved this restaurant which is located near the steps from the Cultural Center Gabriel García Márquez. The site has a simple but very nice decor, different from the other restaurants in the area. The specialty of the Maria Tomasa is Caribbean or coastal food, or seafood. I tried coconut rice and shrimp which was delicious and my companion sampled the snapper in marinara sauce with white rice and fried plantains that was a spectacular golden brown. Maria Tomasa prices are extremely reasonable and their desserts are fantastic. You absoloutely must try the chocolate cake with passion fruit sauce - out of this world!
Located in the heart of the neighborhood Gethsemane, the Gato Negro is a great place to go if you're hungry for a European-style breakfast. Here you can have coffee with milk, fruit juices, eggs made to order, pastries, and toast with butter and jam. A great place to relax with wi-fi and good background music.
Working in Cartagena, and on holiday in Mompox, of course I visited the coastal dining room, the best restaurant in town, even recommended by the Lonely Planet. Good food and good service. Congratulations, Merys, for charisma, joy and love .... This should be the recipe for which all speak and recommend the dining COSTEÑO. God bless you and fill you with prosperity ...
