Cuisine in Bogotá excels any expectations. There are two main types of restaurants: ethnic (whether several Colombian regional cuisines or many countries cuisines) or international/creative food. Fulanitos serves typical food from Valle del Cauca, a region with ancient heritage and rich tradition. Their menu respects that tradition and honors it by presenting a complete variety of dishes and snacks from... More

My Airbnb host recommended this restaurant and I was not disappointed. Although I am very familiar with Latin cuisine, I had to ask the waiter for help. I ordered one of the specials of the day which was Seco Caleño. It consisted of caramalized plantain, rice, a fried egg, avocado, a mixture of potatoes and beef which reminded me of... More

I've been tying local food for the last 2 weeks and this restaurant is one one of my 2 favorites. On mondays you will have the soup for 7500 pesos. Sanchocho is like a mix of everything. They bring it with rice (you will put in the soup), avocado (you may put in the soup like Colombians but I don't)... More

My husband (who´s from Pasto) loves this restuarant because the cooking is very, very similar to that of his mom. His favorite dish at Fulanitos is sobrebariga con salso criolla, which is featured on Wednesday´s. In addition to the food (and their phenomenal limonada) I love the location in the Candelaria and the building itself, which is rustic and charming.

I am Colombian (born and rise), so I am talking from experience when I talk about Colombian food ;) My wife and I went for lunch after spending the morning wondering around La Candelaria. The restaurant is located in an old beautiful colonial house and if you sit in the patio, you will have a wonderful view of El Centro's... More

My husband and I wanted to eat here our first night in Bogota, but it was closed - they are only open noon to 4pm on weekdays and noon to 5:30pm on weekends. We went back for a late lunch and were not disappointed. The menu was extensive and food was delicious. Try one of their daily specials.

Cute place with a spectacular view of the city (facing west - lovely at sunset). The menu is a lot of dishes I didnt really recognize but i understand are native to the area, so we ordered at random and everything was excellent. Large portions, which run between COP15,000 and COP25,000.

We stopped in here for lunch with our friend from Colombia on our recent trip to Bogota. We were blow away by the architecture and the view. The food was wonderful and the staff went out of their way to make our party of 10 comfortable. It was a beautiful day when we were there and enjoyed the terrace overlooking... More

Good food, not fancy, not pretentious. Actually, it's a place for locals, more than tourist.
