Perfect Mussels and Ceviche, Intimate Restaurant

La Gloria is one of my favorite restaurants in Bogota, with good reason. The mussels are exactly as they should be. The traditional version, with white wine and garlic, is ask-for-bread-to-soak-up-all-the-juices good. The seafood version, with giant prawns, was slightly more expensive (I... read more

Good location, nice place to go. The service at the table was great. The food was fine, especially the Pulpo a la Gallega, the main dish wasn't very good. They had several mistakes in the check, which made us take longer at the end, than we would have wanted. The administrator was in a bad day, she forgot our reservation... More

I went to celebrate Mother's Day with my family. We made a reservation a week before. When we arrived they didn't have the table ready and arrange not a good one at the garage. The service didn't know anything about the menu. After an hour And a half they finally sit us inside. I most say the place (not the... More

Places like this make me lose respect for tripadvisor. While the service was great, the food was awful. I ordered the namesake "Gloria" which ended up being calamari and mussels boiled in water... My girlfriend got the "Provençal" which was just mussels boiled in water. The menu said both dishes had really nice sounding sauces, but the reality was that... More

Very poor restaurant in the Macarena. I went with my girlfriend and we used a groupon which included a rice with mixed seafood. The quality of the seafood was very bad. Although our groupon was cheap, the menu normally is very expensive for what it is. We also had issues trying to make the reservation as they won't accept you... More

These guys trick customers, do not go there. They regularly offer groupons asking for a 24 hour reservation at least, and this is strictly enforced, they would not serve you food if this is not the case. I am fine with that because it is stated in the conditions. The problem is that they never answer calls and when they... More

The mussels and chips (really good chips) were delicious but the sushi wasn't anything special. In fact, you can get better sushi in Wok. The martinis are inventive, though and well worth trying. The place is small and only had one waiter when I went there with my girlfriend. It was packed out and as a result the service was... More

We went here based on Tripadvisor reviews to celebrate a birthday. At first, we were a bit nervous-- the restaurant was empty and the staff seemed uncomfortable and disorganized. We realized that they were just opening and had welcomed us in a bit early. Soon, the restaurant filled up and the AMAZING food started to arrive. The appetizers were fantastic--... More
