The ceviche I chose (levanta muerto) was delicioso y sana. Cazuela was wonderful. Try arepa and paticon if you have never tried.

I visited this restaurant with some friends from outside of this country. I have been living in the city for 7 years now but never went before because I don't eat sea food. I went in the restaurant and we had a table even though we did not had reservations. The service of the waiters was excellent. I had an... More

After researching restaurants in Bogota to try, I was very excited to eat at Central Cevicheria. When we arrived we were seated in an outdoor area, even though the inside of the restaurant was not full (the inside of the restaurant was much much nicer ambiance). We ordered a fish ceviche and a grilled mixed seafood dish: both were very... More

A visibly famous address in Bogotà very crowded at lunch but the personnel is most friendly and dynamic to keep you waiting in good conditions. All kind of fish, shellfish, raw or cooked. Everything is extremely tasty and you easilt understand why people are there and happy !

My friends and colleagues love this restaurant but I think it's overrated. It has a festive atmosphere and delicious homemade juices (and cocktails which I didn't try but looked good)... but its signature seafood didn't live up to expectations with fish that tasted like it had been frozen and thawed (despite the menu's claim never to serve frozen fish) and...

Okay, it's our last night in town after two weeks. We showed up without reservations, and it was Saturday night. It was popping!!! We waited maybe ten minutes and were seated at the bar. The host was great! We ordered drinks and then she moved us upstairs to a table. Our server was super attentive!! Atmosphere bustling. It was energizing.... More

Good place for having some seafood. They have a great variety of ceviches and the menu is quite extensive. I had some Tiradito and it was great, I also had the seafood rice, it was not great but it was OK. Prices are decent.

We sat upstairs and the place quickly filled up. Service was prompt and the seafood was outrageous. We started with just a few dishes and went for the main, got very full but the waiter talked us into the coconut flan. I'm not a big fan of flan, but this was the best ever.

We are tough foodies, with very mixed experiences in Colombia, but we loved our Central Cevicheria dinner! The food was exceptional -- especially the biche ceviche and the tiraditos. The only things that disappointed us were the fresh grilled fish (not so interesting), the selection (they did not have some key items, like some of the fishes, or octopus!), the... More
