Great food!

It is a nice place to grab a beer or hang out with friends. I went early in the evening, it was not crowded and my toddler enjoyed the minipizzas. The mushrooms canapés are amazing. Could have any option of fresh juice other then limonada and ventilation could be improved as smoke comes out of the... read more

Pleasant waiters; inventive and perfectly executed tapas. One of the nicest places to have dinner and wine with friends in Bogota.

It's a shame that after coming here for a number of years the owner decides that now it's become really popular with well-off tourists and-ex pats that he puts the prices up to unacceptable levels. The service is great, I think the waiter's name is Manuel, and the food and wine is also very, very good, but I hate it... More

Had a really good meal here while it poured with rain outside. The service (despite our mutual linguistic challenges) was excellent and our server helped in picking out the right tapas mixtures and advised us against an additional dish as it would be too much. He was right. Mushrooms, dates with bacon and potatoes with mayonnaise were all very well... More

I love this place. Every I visit to Bogota from the USA I make it a point to come here. The food is excellent! My favorite is the steak pieces in the blue cheese sauce. Also, the potatoes are a good one to get because a lot of the other dishes are small (as expected) so they add some heartiness... More

Good service, food and quiet location. Do not expect a traditional Spanish Tapas Bar. This is a more "modern version" and the owner is from the Neatherlands... Papas Bravas and the Tapa of Jamon Crudo are very good. Is not the cheapest place but is within range.

Our party of 5 really enjoyed this place. The wine recommended was above average and the food was terrific. We had the prosciutto ham, the chili shrimp, the calamari and the patatas bravas. Plan on everyone ordering one item and sharing with the table. There seemed to not be enough ventilation and the smoke poured out of the kitchen into... More

We found this restaurant by accident. Our hotel was close by and the first night we walked in we only wanted to get a drink. They were closing but they let us drink a beer there. The owner was nice and helpful in giving us directions to get safely back to our hotel. Since the staff and owner were helpful... More
