Awful vibe and service unfortunately. Nothing to write home about. A scary place for kids. Haunted vibes.

This restaurant was very good, but we didn't give it a 5 star for one reason. When we arrived we asked to see the wine list and proceeded to select a bottle. The waitress then told us that they had a special meal plan which would include all the wine we could drink plus our meals. We asked her if... More

We went Big!! We had the Milagro meal plan! Each person paid 100,000COP plus tax/tip 20,000COP... a total of 120,000COP ($50-60USD). This plan included an appetizer, a delicious entree, a dessert and happy hour for two hours (top shelf). I recommend a drink called, "a mal-intensionado"! We ordered too many drinks to quick! Two hours is plenty enough. I don't... More

I loved this place, great, delicious food, great service. They had a plan called "Indulgencias" and for $35.00 dollars, we had 2 drinks, appetizer, an entrée and dessert. Everything was delicious!

We quite enjoyed our dinner at El Santisimo. The food was yummy and interesting takes on Colombian cuisine. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The set menu and all you can drink deal was great!
