La Terraza

Reviewed By EvelynUnderwood - Brisbane, Australia

It made a pleasant change to be on a second floor in a restaurant with a choice of inside or out on the deck Seating.
The burrito I ordered was oven baked to melt the mass of grated cheese on top. Inside it was stuffed with peppers, onions, beans and chicken, with guacamole and sour cream on a bed of shredded lettuce on the side.
If your are tired of the smell of food frying, plastic chairs and tables, you will enjoy this restaurant. It is clean, bright with marble top tables outside, a heater and good view of the plaza and church.
The menu has fish, pork, steak, chicken, risotto, lobster in white wine sauce and all very affordable.
Good service. No English spoken but staff do their best if you have limited Spanish.

Frimon

Reviewed By Luis Alberto C

I had gone twice there because of a recommendation. The food was very good, it did not disappointed us. But the last time I went with friends, they made us wait 10 minutes just to take our order, 30 minutes (not exagerating) to bring our beverages. Then after 10 more minutes with no-food we asked the waitress how long would it take to bring our food, and she said 10 more minutes. My wife angry said 'that's what you said 10 minute ago!' By that moment, we just left, even with the apologies from the owner saying that it wasn't their fault because they were slammed. I told him that it was not fair for him to have us waiting for more than a hour for our food, it's already difficult enough for Ecuadorians to cross to Colombia with loooong lines, you just don't want to wait for one more for your food. I paid the juices they served us and we left. Sadly, I would not come back.

El precio si es económico y la sazón es buena, peor lamentablemente la publicidad que hacen de: "El Mejor y Mas Variado Restaurante Con Excelente Servicio" le falta ya que no es muy variado su menú y el servicio no es excelente le falta.

Los Tejados

Reviewed By Romschu - Quito, Ecuador

Caminando por la Carrera Séptima del centro de la ciudad fronteriza de Ipiales - Colombia, nos topamos con este restaurant, al observar su fachada…sentí un “Deja Vu”, ya que de mi memoria se había borrado su nombre y el hecho de que allí comí hace años…entonces decidimos almorzar en los Tejados, donde la cocina y el parqueo preceden a su ingreso principal…sin la ayuda de mesero alguno buscamos un sitio donde sentarnos, había varias mesas disponibles, transcurridos unos minutos la mesera trajo la carta, el cordero estaba un poco duro y la papas fritas simplonas, el salmón al ajillo carecía del toque adecuado de ajo, la picada de carnes varias – una montaña de sabor y el plato ganador fue “el lomo acaramelado”
Por curiosidad pedimos un “Eduardo Santos” el único postre de la carta, que consiste en una especie de flan relleno de frutas y aderezado con miel…empalagoso pero delicioso, pedimos 2 “shots” de Aguardientico colombiano y solo nos trajeron uno, ya que se les había acabado la única botella -¡Que falla!- el famoso café colombiano, no paso de una versión acuosa simplona, sin embargo fue un acierto solicitar la jarra de limonada natural.
La cuenta fue de 99.600 pesos es decir $ 37,00

Ricuras de mi Tierra

Reviewed By MariaFernada - Medellin, Colombia

Definitivamente son las mejores arepas rellenas de queso que me he comido, son rellenas de puro queso en su interior y ademas son muy económicas. Es un paso obligado si se va al santuario de las lajas, un local 100% familiar y con la mejor atención que pude encontrar en Las Lajas, destacando la amabilidad y el carisma de la gente que nos atendió. Recomendadisimo.
