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

My wife and I joined some Colombian friends here for dinner. The service was great and the food was only matched by the view of the city. We've had good food all over Colombia but this was definitely a favorite. We'll be returning and would recommend it to anyone looking for a traditional dinner with a nice dining experience too.

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.
