All reviews tamales bread soup chicken corn on the cob potatoes juice hot chocolate anthony bourdain oldest restaurant simon bolivar bolivar square great place to try small place colombian food wait for a table traditional dishes
If you want ambiance, this place has it.
You will always wait in line - no problem.
You tell the guy at the window what you want and pay in cash.
Then you find a table - I recommend upstairs on the railing.
Then the...food comes and it is delicious,. The tamale is big and so flavorful. The Hot chocolate and cheese is a surprise and very tasty.
Everyone should go here to eat.More
We had lunch here the other day on the recommendation of a friend of ours...we are glad we did....excellent...shared the ajiaco soup (potato and shredded chicken served with avocado, rice, capers, cream and corn on the side) - excellent - and a chicken tamale -...again excellent....the place was very busy....wonderful hostess and wonderful service....and cash is the order of the day. We had no room for dessert but must say there was a very nice variety of sweets available.More
Oldest snack corner of the city ; best solution for a fast food stop .
Menu didn't offer big chances but if You like the famous rolls "tamales" herewith you can satisfy all your needs! Excellent chocolate!!
After seeing this place on a couple of lists of places to go in Bogota, I figured I had to go. The menu is limited. I got the complete chocolate. It was good, but I feel like I could get the same somewhere else for...a better price.
The service was quick, and with a smile.
If you need to check things off your list, go in the late afternoon, there was a very short wait...otherwise, be ready to stand on line for a while.More
The restaurant is small yet comfortable and cozy. The food was delicious and the service was great. The only take cash like many other places in the area.
Highly recommended. I need to be back for the Tamales :)
If you are looking for an authentic Colombian food experience here it is! It is a very intimate dining experience where only a few people can fit in the restaurant, but worth the wait. We ordered the soup and that will keep you full for...hours. The service was very quick and everyone was super nice. Recommend it when you are in the heart of the city!More
The food was worth the wait. The tamales were the most flavorful I have eaten and the ajiaco was delicious.
We sat crammed up in the balcony and enjoyed the ambiance of this small restaurant. If you are claustrophobic this restaurant is not for you....The service was fast once you were seated.More
