I went here after a walking tour for a hot chocolate served with cheese and bread as it came highly recommended as a favourite local treat. Hot chocolate normally isn't served with cheese in Ireland so it was worth seeing what the fuss was about. Hot chocolate. Good. Cheese. Good. Bread. Good. The place is very cozy/busy and the staff...

We went for a quick lunch while visiting Bogota and the place is really cosy. We really liked the authenticity of the meals( very local) the prices are extremely good and there is always a queue to be able to enter. Overall I really recommend it!

One of the iconic restaurants in Bogota city. This place has been famous for years. Order Ajiaco, the chicken soup cooked in Colombian way. Very cheap but yet delicious.

A tiny restaurant - oldest in Bogota - with delicious authentic Columbian food. Lunch included the traditional hot chocolate with cheese and bread and butter, tortilla soup with a chunk of corn on the cob, and a plantain wrapped tamale with a chicken leg inside. And Clib Columbian beer. Delicious and very reasonable.

It is a tiny restaurant that is always full , their food is traditional from Bogotá and prices are very reasonable. We had ajiaco ($22,000), juice (3000) and two little deserts to go, we paid $56000 which is not expensive at all for the quality.

Excellent Colombian food. Both the sweet and savory dishes are amazing and a lot of food for relatively cheap. Visited in June 2015.

Small, cosy, place that offers fast, cheap and delicious local cuisine. We loved the ajiaco! This place is for a fast bite and to get some rest when exploring around, it does not have very comfortable seating arrangements so you cant have a long lunch or dine here, and it may not be very comfortable with kids or if you...

My boyfriend and I stopped by for a late lunch shortly after arrival in Bogota, and while the place was packed, we were shown upstairs to some counter seating. The ajiaco (around COP 22,000; just over USD 7) and tamal (COP 6800) we shared were the perfect antidote to too much plane food. The ajiaco was fully loaded with chicken,... More

"The fake door" is a traditional restaurant, very little and friendly, but sometimes is too dificult to get a table, or even a chair. But the food is awesome, with the traditional recipe form the old Santafe. If you are visiting Bogota's downtown, it's an excelent choice to get a good breakfast.

After visiting a bunch of museums, I came to this place for dinner. It was full of friendly people, including the waiters. The place is very traditional and you may have to wait to eat. I think it is worth it. The ajiaco and the tamales are huge and I would suggest sharing either one of them. I had huevos... More
