I visited this rather interesting place yet another time. It keeps getting better and better and it is a must stop on my trips to Colombia. You can get a whole meal and enjoy a show or just grab a beer and some apps and enjoy the overlook they have. The place is always full, so getting there early is a must or face the consequences. They have pretty good ribs and their "picadas" are quit tasty. Be prepared to enjoy a great afternoon full of music, food and nature! Viva Colombia

Great view. We did not have reservation so wait was over 1.5 hours. But they have a a great lawn with a make shift pier few bars /tiki bars where you can pick up drinks and appetizers while you wait. Fabulous view. Inside is very large so lots of groups clebration birthdays etc. Live music too. Small section for children to do arts and crafts.
Unfortunatey had a few drinks and appetizers and chose not to wait for table so can not comment on food.

I've visited this restaurant 3 times. Every time same experience. I want to start with the reasons I gave 2 stars and not one. They have a very nice "guiso" style restaurant (ask your Colombian host or companion what does "guiso" means). It is nice because it is clean, spacious and it has a very nice view to the mountains and an greeky-feng shui fountain at the entrance. They have a good live music group. They played almost the entire time we were there every time. So that is good. Now I will tell you why not to go there. The food is soo bad (3 times overcooked beef, cold porkribs, dry gravy etc.) , and the service is soo slow and the prices... well for such food and service?... Just too high. So yes, the place is worth visiting for a couple of beers, some snaks or a simple entrance (make sure you have transportation, don't drink and drive). But always remember the food can't be the reason. Also, make sure you have a reservation just to make sure you won't be told you need to wait at the entrance for 2 hours. You won't have to wait that much, but they will treat you like a little child just to narrow your expectations.

I love the Arepa in Islamorada. I went there with some friends and we ordered Arepa and Pinacolada. That was the best Arepa we ever had in Colombia! The view is also great from the balcony or viewing area. There was also band playing music so it was great.
