“Unique place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Rumba in Colombia has one of its best examples here...So funny, nice food, good music and an outstanding ambiance...It is an unforgettable place if you come and enjoy the new different options, not for those who want a calm and quiet place but still interesting for a quiet noon instead of a "rumba" weekend evening...

“This is the place I'll remember the most of Colombia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This place is a must. It is kind of far from Bogota, but it well worths the journey.
The restaurant itself is one of the nicest I know. It is huge and has a unique decoration. I just loved it.
The waiters are so nice and service oriented. There are also a number of animators with different disguises and they make the place even more unique.
Apparently, the place is always packed. It is the restaurant where locals come to celebrate big ocassions. At some point everybody moves to the dance floor and you wouldn't believe the ambiance. Colombians really know how to dance... Party runs through their veins and at this place you can see it yourself.
When it comes to the food, they have a huge menu. They have local food and steak. They also have all sort of alcoholic beverages to choose from. They close at 3 am.
In sum, Andrés carne de res in Chia is probably the funniest place I have ever been.

“Amazing food, music, design and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This has to be one of the most extraordinary restaurants I have ever been to.

As we sat at the "Bolivar" table my Argentinian colleague took full control of the impressive pasta-to-full-carnivore menu options.

The staff are all lively students. The food comes quickly, the beer and wine too. All the staff smile and have fixed, but genuine, smiles. Troubadours serenade the tables.

But what strikes you most is the design, music and rythms around you. It is an immersion into Latin America culture.

Book and have one of the most memorable evenings of your life.

“Number 1!There is no place like this in the World!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Andres Jaramillo is a creative genius!He is more popular than any President of Colombia.If you have not been to Andres Carnes de Res in Chia,then you have not been to Colombia.It is an hour drive from the center of Bogota but well worth it.
Once you get into the famous swimming pool size mojitos served in the Totumo shell,you will need a taxi to get home.The menu has pages of great foods.What is most amazing is the fun,crazy,delightful decorations and the maze of space which can seat over 2,000 people with 750 staff caring for your needs.Lots of entertainment,bands,dance floors and great music.After 10 pm ,you can't get in on Thursdays,Fridays,Saturdays and Sundays.I come to Bogota just to go to Andres!.....and I am old and dance all night with my wife.
