Dinner was phenomenal; we took the chef's recommendations of grilled octopus tentacle, shrimp carpaccio and crab claws and it was perfect. The crab claws in particular are going to stick in my memory. If I'm ever back in Bogota, I'll be back here. P.s. Take a chance on the wild strawberries with black pepper!

Dinner here was excellent - especially the awe-inspiring calamari. But what stood out even more was Chef Rafael and his patient, accommodating staff. This is truly a fine-dining experience, and Chef Rafael and his servers were ever so gentle with our somewhat fish-out-of-water group of backpackers. An all around excellent experience.

We arrived in Bogota about 2pm after a difficult morning of travel and we were starving. We walked down the main restaurant street on Zona G and happened upon 69 Oyster Bar. After being in Argentina and Uruguay for a week, we were no longer interested in red meat. We walked in wearing casual travel clothes, while the rest of... More

Great seafood, the mussels in white wine were particularly good. The service was warm and friendly, and accommodating of my poor Spanish.

The owner and cook was there when we arrived. The food was great and I just wish we had a bigger appetite because the food was great

Amazing place to share with your Loved One or simply with Friends! The food was great, and the service was splendid. I decided to come with two friends for my birthday, and it didn't let us down. They immediately received us with complementary champagne and something to snack. The appetizers were small, but delicious, same for the main courses. I... More

This has been one of the best dinning experiences at Bogota. The sashimi shrimp and grilled octopus as appetizers are to to die for. As appetizers the pork and beef were excellent, I would recommend this place blindfolded. This becomes my favorite at Bogota. Sofia, the chef, will give you the best dinning experience ever

The chef here knows how seafood should be prepared ...some of the dishes were unique (the crab claws were flavorful and so convenient to eat) and some of the classics were done so perfectly. I had the grouper, which was amazing in the lemon butter sauce. Don't forget about the dessert - probably some of the best chocolate cake I've... More

I just finished my meal here, and it will be one I remember for the rest of my life. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by Rafael, the Chef/Owner, who spent 5+ years studying the culinary arts in Milan, but you would never know it by his gentle smile and warm demeanor. We had a reservation and... More

I travel to Bogotá for work once a month and I never miss eating at least once in the 69. The owners travel the world once a year collecting new ideas for their delicious meals. I would call their style an European-South American fusion with an Asian twist. A special mention must be given to their friendly knowledgeable service, with... More
