Great rustic ambiance, quick, friendly service. When we arrived they told us there were two options for lunch: Ajiaco and Tamales. Both were thick, hearty and flavorful. They didn't come out hot (we were a bit past the lunch rush) and were pretty salty, but they were well balanced and comforting anyway. The chocolate and juices were also wonderful. Would... More

We came here for lunch after visiting Museo Botero. We got the orange juice, ajiaco, and tamales. The tamales were really tasty and flavorful but we thought everything else was average.

Good prices, delicious food and very popular! We had a tamale each and the traditional hot chocolate with bread and cheese (total cost 30,000 pesos) and were very full afterwards!

This place is fun, very crowded and small. Very limited menu, but I gather it's been the same for years. Loved the tamal; the ajiaque was ok. Hot chocolate (dip the cheese in it) also fun to try.

We popped in on a Saturday mid day. The place is very small and very crowded which makes it warm. The menu is very small. The tamale was awesome. It would be worth it if you catch them on a slow day or grab one to go. Otherwise I can't say I would suffer through the crowding and heat again... More

Food here is ok. Had the tamale and ajicao. Ajicao was over priced and bland. Very similar to Irish stew.

A small restaurant with a few tables (close to Plaza Boliviar). When we arrived around 2 p.m. there was a line outside, but we didn't wait more than 5 min. We shared the Ajiaco Santafereño. It's delicious and we recommend this to anyone. Also when you usually don't eat soups like me! It's 24.000 pesos for one bowl, but it's... More

Tiny restaurant filled with locals which is always a good sign! We had the tamale for $7500 and it was delicious! Would happily go back for a great cheap eat!

We tried to have lunch here and it was really busy, then instead we decided to try some of the traditional candies till some place became available. I just can say that candies were really good, at the end we were full and happy

I'm a very picky person to eat and most of the times I'm afraid to try "new foods" but it didn't happen here. When I smelled the typical dishes I dig in immediately!!! Delicious. An explosion of new flavours. It is located in Candelaria, in the most touristic area of Bogota. You must give it a try. It's a very... More
