Fodor's Review

Generous portions draw locals to this second-story restaurant where waiters in Panama hats serve you on a balcony overflowing with plants or in the large dining room with terra-cotta floors. This is a great place to try a range of traditional Antoiquian dishes, especially the monstrous bandeja paisa, a dish heaped with beans, finely ground beef, fried pork chicharron, sausages, egg, and arepas. Come in a group so you can sample various local hits, like the sopa de guineo (plantain soup) or the cazuela (stew) before sinking your teeth into lomito (tenderloin). Finish your feast with brevas con queso (figs with white cheese). There's also a branch in Las Palmas, near the Intercontinental Hotel, which is more rustic and has fabulous views of the valley.
