By sheer coincidence I dined here twice, one night for dinner and the next day for a business lunch. Obviously very popular with the city residents - "Rolos." The seafood was as fresh as anything I´ve eaten in my now home city of Lima, Peru. Go with the Chef suggestions and enjoy!

Everything we ordered was off the menu and I can´t start to tell you how good it was. We had lamb, pork, squid, octopus... Everything was amazing. I will go back and try new things, specially if they're not in the menu!

A place I visit every time I am in town. Food is always delicious and the Chef´s suggestions are great. Let him know you are willing to try the nights specials. You won´t be sorry. A nice wine selection and drinks are offered. Don´t leave without trying the strawberrys with pepper and vanilla ice cream. My special favorite, the Cacciuco... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant based on other T.A reviews and we weren't disappointed! The restaurant was quiet when we arrived at 7.30pm on a Saturday but was quite full by the time we got to desserts. The chef was delightful and chatted to us between each course (in English). He was happy to customise our orders -... More

We ordered the following for appetizers: - Trio... More

Words simply cannot express how delicious the food was and the service was exceptional keen attention to detail. Never have I had a dish as exquisite as the Frutti de Mare with Black Pasta! I will download a picture. The flavor and... More

Mostly Italian and Mediterranean dishes are prepared with singular passion by Sofía Gómez who has an innate knowledge of what flavors work well together, what flavors to... More

A truly passionate chef, a team of charming servers and a cozy, unpretentious atmosphere have made this place the favorite hangout of local celebrities, politicos and Bogotano foodies. If you can't get a table in this small restaurant, by all means wait for one; you will be rewarded with some of the best food to be had in South America!... More
