Excellent diner option

Very nice restaurant, excellent food and friendly staff. The restaurant owner usually will stop by your table to chat and to make your food was cooked to your satisfaction. The freshness of the food was outstanding. The restaurant is centrally located with many other dinning options nearby.

We will definitely be back. My shrimp with lime cream and brandy were amazing. My husbands tuna with a tangerine and red pepper sauce was also very good. We look forward to exploring the menu more and trying out other things.

We stayed in Bogota for four days and were impressed with the quality of restaurants on offer but the food here was a cut above everything else we experienced. A warm, friendly welcome was followed by the personal attention of the chef, Raphael, who in English, offered his recommendations which were gratefully received. We enjoyed grilled palm hearts in a... More

I stayed at the embassy suites nearby (will review this amazing hotel as well!) and wandered with my date along the street to this restaurant. We didn't feel like the steakhouse across the way, nor teriyaki, fried chicken, or the place that my date said was similar to Applebee's or TGI Friday's, which were all also nearby. We went in...

One of the very best restaurants in Bogotá with incredible food and wine. Oysters, of course, are delicious but so are the mussels roquefort. You always need to order the fried cassavas as a side dish. The bisteca is out of this world! Even an italian colleague said he felt like in Italy eating it. Fresh food, great wines and... More

Amazing Orange in passion fruit and poppy seed sauce! The grilled octopus appetizer was very good as well and the service extremely friendly. Happy to recommend it.

As I write this review, I crave the ceviche of 69. The fish was extremely fresh. The flavors were brilliant and bold. In addition, the chef is a super sweet lady. She took the time to come out and welcome us, introduce us to the menu, and checked on us as we finished our meal. Also, the lemonade was perhaps... More

This is wonderful restaurant! I loved everything about it. It has the feel of a small European feel to it. The attention to detal by the staff, great food and ambiance make this one of my favorite restaurants. A must visit...

My husband and I loved this place. The mussels were awesome, and the pumpkin soup was one of the best soups I've had and such a neat combination of ingredients. Definitely would go back. And definitely save room for dessert!
