I first ate at this restaurant several years ago. It was an experience. I strongly disliked seafood, but HAD to eat here. It turned out, they were able to guide me and recommend a dish I could eat. I now LOVE seafood, and have eaten here many more times. The food is still so good I don't miss meat!

This night all my family even my young nephew started with a terrible pain in the stomach and we started to go immediately to the bathroom to throw up all. Be careful with that kinds... More

One of the best salmon dinners ever, great serving, the owner was there to meet and greet. The menu has a new style mix of interesting items. The yucca is a smashed presentation with a great subtle flavor. The desert sweet and intense, home made like everything. They won several culinary awards. My second dinner there and I am impressed...

The food here is amazing. All the dishes are great. I first tried the delivery service and it quite surprised me. Ceviches, cazuela, arepa de huevo, desserts, everything is so tasty and well prepared that you always want to go back. Really recommended.

I live in the neighborhood. I took my son and have empanadas and I have a glass of wine. The service is super and they are very kind. It's a very small place so we should take that into account.

We stumbled upon this small restaurant in La Macarena and highly recommend it. Everything we ate was delicious: crab claws, fish tacos, shrimp ceviche, and prawns. The restaurant is very small so could get cramped on a busy night. However, we were the only patrons on a quiet Monday night. Staff were very helpful as our Spanish is limited.

Interesting menu and ever better cocktails! Cramped eating area means that it's a bit like eating in someone's living room. A favourite neighbourhood restaurant.

Delicious Colombian food from the pacific zone of the country, a familiar and friendship ambience in a pretty neighborhood of Bogotá. You can visit our rooftop and have an amazing view of the city.
