First decent food in Colombia

Having come from Cartagena where the food is really very underwhelming, we were really pleased to find that the food in Lucia was really good. We had the pulpo appetiser and it was excellent. Ravioli also very good. A fly landed in my pinot noir and they immediately gave me a fresh glass... read more

I had dinner on New Year's Eve with a group of 12, and this place was terrible. We had an 8p reservation, and the waitress came over to take drink orders for the five people closest to her. She then brought them their drinks before taking orders from the rest of the table. Perhaps this is a normal service practice... More

I've never waited over 2 hours even before they forgot to bring our entrees. I understand that S Americans may enjoy long dinners but this was truly a service issue. Never got my water refilled either. Just absolutely horrible experience.

We had breakfast here and the chef obviously can't make poached eggs. The eggs were fully cooked and tasted like vinegar. The egg Benedict was a bit better but not a winner either. The servers were nice.

Breakfast of coffee "toast-tomato-scrambled egg-bacon on a bun" with hash browns and coffee...modeled after McDonalds, without bun being toasted or warm. $7.00 including propina...price and quality OK, by McDonald standards. I expected more, and was willing to pay for 'more'...sandwich bun should have been heated/toasted. Follow-up table service quite poor, polite staff.

food was really good.. Service is really great, the indoor/outdoor seating was really good as it is sit above the level of the street, you can see the crowd at the nearby restaurant and people passing by.. As it is located at parque Lleras, Great atmosphere and dinner out with 2 toddler was not an issue for us!

We had dinner at Lucia during one of the many Colombian holidays when everything is closed. It was pretty good, but it was expensive for what we got. They do have a nice balcony overlooking Parque Lleras, and that was nice. And the restaurant itself was very pretty. But you're going to pay Carmen prices for food that is good,... More

This nice restaurant is indoor/outdoor and sits just above the level of the street and Lleras Park, overlooking both. Get a table by the railing above the street. We had breakfasts here repeatedly. The menu offers good variety. Excellent service. This is a well run, highly professional restaurant. They stop selling breakfast at 10 a.m.

Very centrally located and easy to find if you're new to the city. Quiet atmosphere was good for meeting clients. Drinks/wine selection are good. No complaints about the food specifically, just expected more from one of the most expensive restaurants in the city, especially with so many great options just blocks away.
