Service was mediocre and the food was not up to scratch. We waited ages before the waitress took any notice of us. The empanadas were superb but my Ajiaco, a traditional Bogotá dish I have had many times, was not tasty at tall. I was sure something was missing in my Ajiaco. I asked a waiter what happened because it just did not taste like the usual Ajiaco. He said he would bring me some Guasca, the herb used to give it its distinctive flavour. He never brought the herb. Of course they never put it in at all in the first place. This is a very traditional Colombian restaurant which seem to have lost direction. Sad really because it was an institution for many years. Our bill was almost 150,000 Colombian pesos (around 90 US dollars) for three so I left feeling rather angry as one could get much better stuff in Bogota for this amount of money. We did not add service charge to the bill. They should get their act together.
