My fiancée and I ate came here for lunch and loved the food! We had the grilled octopus, the raviolis with 'queso costeños' and chorizo, the bean salad, and the lamb meatballs, and everything was delicious. They also had a very good wine list. Excellent place to eat well and enjoy a few tapas with friends and family. Highly recommended!

My fiancé and I came here for our anniversary, and it was so fantastic! We were a little concerned about the lack of customers, but slowly many more tables were filled. We ordered the grilled octopus, lamb meatballs, bean salad, and costeño ravioli. Everything was perfectly cooked, seasoned, presented, and just overall fantastic. The grilled octopus was my favorite, and... More

Honest cooks, unforgettable flavours. Their lamb is just out of this worldy. I would say the light is a bit on a darker sight, I would have loved to see better the work of art they are serving. But really the cuisines surpassed all the expectations. It is later that I found that they employed a Bogota celebrity chef and... More

Bogota has many surprises - in both big and small packages. This small restaurant has terrific food served with warm hearts. We speak little to no Spanish and asked for someone who spoke English. The gentlemen who helped us not only steered us to some of the best tapas we have but made sure we didn't over order. He turned... More

Pro: The menu was short, but had a great variety of possible selections to choose from. Con: Pricier than typical Bogota restaurants, but you're paying for better food, and an eco-conscious establishment.

It is simply great food that combines local flavors with Spanish cuisine expertise and the result is fabulous! I have been here several times and have always been pleasantly surprised. It is a great choice and highly recommended for those who enjoy small plates and original but very tasty dishes. Combine this with wine and good company.. and you have... More

The imaginative preparation of dishes mixing traditional Colombian cuisine with Spanish precedents: think of the "patatas bravas" or the chorizos prepared echoing their Iberian counterparts.

We went for lunch on a Monday and this place quickly filled up with lots of government and business people. The chef spoke excellent English and walked us through the menu. Everything was excellent and the portions were quite large. This is a fairly small place and a little off the tourist track but worth seeking out.

We had a short stopover in Bogota in transit to another city and followed a friend's recommendation to eat at Donostia in La Macarena. We were very much impressed with the excellent food (the Raviolis con suero y chorizo are amazing and the carpaccio out of this world) and the great fruit juices (gotta try the jugo the feijoa or...
