Not to be missed!

I went with my wife and mother-in-law for an afternoon lunch and had a fabulous meal, and a great time. The food is typical cuisine from Cali, not Bogota. But it is authentic and awesome, everything we ordered. The service was great and it's housed in a stunningly beautiful colonial house, with... read more

Fulanitos offers a wonderfully decorated colonial house with nice views of the city down below. The service was friendly and the prices were reasonable. I also liked the informality. My wife ordered steak and I went for a spicy ox tail dish. They were both good but not great and the portions were small. I left a little hungry, where... More

The restaurant is located in an old house in Candelaria. We ate on the roof deck, which has a view of the city over the tile roofs of the neighboring houses. The food was spectacular. We felt guilty that we couldn't finish it all. What's more it was really reasonable - dinner for 2 with drinks for about $30.

Fulanitos is a bit hidden on a small street in the La Candelaria old town, but that is part of the charm. An excellent, atmospheric place for lunch, set in a rustic Colombian house, with some great tables out on the balcony. The regional cooking is equally excellent and in large portions. Hard to find a bad choice on the... More

The house is restored impeccably with antiques and paintings on the wall, old wood floors and the feel of a house that been around for 200 or 300 years. The food,well-being enormous portions, is also quite good.I went with many Colombian locals to this restaurant, and each one says that the best place to get the traditional food from the... More

Great Colombian cooking in a former residence, plenty of regional specialties with a very diverse menu. Highly recommended.

Service was terrible. Appetizers never came and we had to keep hunting down the waiter for service. Food was ok.. not the best typical plates. Great place for outdoor sitting as the views from the top outdoor terrace were amazing.

This restaurant is fairly large, compared to others in Bogota. The food was delicious and the views were great. The waiters were great and other than street food, this seemed like the most authentic classic Colombian cuisine we had during our week in Bogota. We had the patio to ourselves for most of the meal while it drizzled on the... More

This place was recommended by my Colombian friends. their view is amazing and the food as well. We had a group of vegetarians and their vegetarian dish is really good. Also the Sancocho soup was really good for a cold rainy day! Great place for really good Colombian food! Very good prices as well

The old house and the views are spectacular which makes this restaurant a good choice when visiting La Candelaria. The menu is from Cali in Colombia's southwest and so all the fish and seafood come from the Pacific. I ordered the pescado encocado, fish in coconut sauce with shrimp. It was very well prepared and there was absolutely no fishy... More
