Caribbean Place restaurant opened its doors in 1992 and is run by chef and owner Martin Quintero. After studying gastronomy and working in different restaurants in Bogota, Martin relocated to Providencia and became chef for Hotel Cabañas AguaDulce, where he had the opportunity to learn and work with local products and ingredients creating unique and innovative dishes such as ginger grouper, coconut crab, lobster in crab sauce and other dishes which remain on the menu.
