Fodor's Expert Review El Falso Olivo
$$$ Cali Mediterranean
A good wine list and professional, amiable staff make El Falso Olivo the city’s best choice for international flavors. Bathed in light from floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook a plant-filled patio, this contemporary Mediterranean bistro has high ceilings with long pendant lights, wood paneling, and polished cement flooring that complete the sleek modern aesthetic. The menu is distinctly Iberian, with tapas style-dishes like crispy polenta, Andalusian gazpacho, or pulpo a la gallega (tender octopus in olive oil and paprika), but don’t miss the sublime fish mains or the tender ribs or lamb.
