A review of the popular Sushi restaurant in Pereira, Risaralda
For Seafood and Sushi lovers, you probably won’t find a better place to eat out in Pereira than Emilios. They are renowned for their beautifully prepared and creative dishes that blend traditional Colombian favourites with modern high-end cuisine.
If you’re not a Sushi lover like me, the menu can seem a little limited, but everything I’ve ordered has always been delicious… I mostly go for the BBQ Spare Ribs which is a massive portion of soft and tender spare ribs in a delicious BBQ sauce, just excellent! However they also do awesome traditional Colombian breakfasts.
One of Pereira’s most popular high-end restaurants, situated just off the Circunvalar in the trendy Pinares neighborhood.

Before you visit Emilios you should probably be aware that it is one of Pereira’s most popular high-end restaurants, situated just off the Circunvalar in the trendy Pinares neighborhood, it’s a favourite spot for birthday parties and special occasions. Which does mean occasionally the quiet and relaxed atmosphere is lacking, but if you go on a week night then you should be fine.
Emilios is also one of the few high-end restaurants that opens early for breakfast too which is really nice if you fancy a gourmet version of the traditional Colombian breakfast, they offer various egg dishes plus the legendary traditional Colombian staple of ‘Calentao’ ( Beans mixed with rice ).
You could be forgiven for thinking that Emilios has a bad reputation due to several bad reviews on Trip Advisor, but honestly each time I’ve been ( around 4 times now ) the service has always been excellent, I have had zero complaints. TripAdvisor is generally not a good resource for information about Pereira and Colombia, it is full of fake reviews and quite often very misleading. However, I would say that if you’re planning to go on a weekend make sure you make a reservation beforehand and expect slightly longer waiting times for your order.
