Mister Pollo Norte

Reviewed By lupilove04 - Valencia

We had a late lunch (4pm) and restaurant was not busy with too many customers. Ordered nuggets with fries and a 10-pc BBQ ribs, also with fries and they mentioned a 20 minute wait as soon as we paid. Actually waited almost half an hour For fast food we found this outrageous. Will never return

Trattoria Alina

Reviewed By MARIAMECHE - Buenos Aires, Argentina

The pizza was bad and the prices incredible high. The cheese was not a mozzarella.

La Merced

Reviewed By Eli G - Vancouver, Canada

We were a group of four traveling around Pasto and given we were in Pasto during Carnaval, we had very limited options for dinner. This was a place recommended by our hotel. We had all great meals and jugo de mora, which was refreshing. The service was very good.

Restaurante San Julian's

Reviewed By _williansvar - Pasto, Colombia

Estuvimos en familia en una recepción, el servicio lento, probamos una crema de almejas buena. Pero el plato fuerte fue decepcionante, unos medallones de cerdo, mal fileteados, duro e insípido no tiene ninguna clase de presentación. Los camarones apanados fofos sin crujiente ni sabor y la ensalada ni se diga mal presentada, los tomates parecían viejos cortados con mucho tiempo y el pepino súper mal presentado. No recomiendo este lugar! Su relación precio calidad es pésima!
Los meseros necesitan capacitación, son displicentes!

Peru Fusion

Reviewed By Molina-ec - Quito, Ecuador

It was full the night we ate there, apparently a favourite with locals. The food was OK, not gourmet but well made and tasty. The staff was very helpful and friendly. As with the entire city, it is fairly inexpensive.

K.R.K. Caffeto

Specialty coffee from Narino, best bakery in town, a variety of light and healthy food and Italian ice cream.

Reviewed By Tallbiketourer - Los Angeles, California

K.R.K to the rescue! Great cafe with a decent selection of salads, sandwiches, wraps, and soups. I kept it pretty simple; got the jamon y queso Sandwich combo (11500 pesos). Included the Sandwich (which to my surprise was a very good croissant with lots of butter), fries, and a drink. Sandwich was great, fries just ok. But- the "Opera" cake I had for dessert was incredible!

AvLilah

Reviewed By Macbrayne - Scot on the run

The eating experience in Pasto can be "mixed"; this is at the top of the right end of the scale. Beautiful and imaginative outdoor/indoor setting with great views of the surrounding hills, excellent empanadas to start and a great system for devising a superb main course. Choose your base - e.g. rice, pasta, salad, Sandwich - then add from large, open display of fresh meats, vegetables, pickles, cheese, sauces etc. and have cold or stir-fried. Intriguing and tasty selection of smoothies and juices.

Reviewed By KatarinaBP - Prievidza, Slovakia

The waiter helped us to choose from local specials:
EMPANADA DE AÑEJO as a starter was absolute divine, then we shared a fabulous and totaly fresh PERNIL DE CERDO accompanied with mashed potatoes cakes + HAMBURGUESA MEXICANA with nice avocado twist.
Fresh juices, coffee and cake were just fine and the bill was surprisingly low for such a quality and presentation of the meal (total bill for 2 of us 40.000).
We loved the ambient atmosphere as well as the interior design.

Make sure you go there with an empty stomach, they will fill it with wonders! Best thing for me is the steaks and the floating island desert

Capitan nirvana

Reviewed By Afrikaphile - Bristol, United Kingdom

Simply awful food. Ive never in my life sent food back unless it wasnt cooked, but the burrito was waterlogged in watery mayonaise and was absolutely disgusting. My girlfriends pizza was no better. Swapped it for a meat dish which was also horrible. Avoid!!
