However brief your visit is to Bogota to dine or lunch at 69 should not be missed! It is a lovely, stylish restaurant. If you don't speak English the Patron, a 5th generation Scot will come and talk you through the menu. We started with some 'amuse bouches' then a prawn carpaccio starter followed by a seafood mixed grill, wow!... More

Without a doubt the finest dining experience of our stay in Colombia. Wonderful fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection by the chef/ patron, perfectly seasoned and beautifully presented. Clean modern and stylish decor enhance the entire dining experience add to that the professionalism of the serving staff and nothing can be faulted. An amuse bouche of a trio of... More

We tried several off the menu dishes that where delicious. The best bisteca fiorentina in Bogotá. Mussels, tune, black rise, shrimp carpaccio are always great.

Before we ordered the chef came out to speak to us about the menu and suggested what sauces went best with the fish of the day. He even made one to order for me based on what I said I liked. How good is that! I had grouper and my partner, tuna. They were both exceptional and the service was... More

6 of us visited for lunch after a morning touring Bogota. The restaurant has a beatiful design and friendly service with good prices (apart from the oysters which seemed to be overpriced so we did not indulge) I can recommend the crab cakes and the snails washed down by the pinot grigio!

6 of us popped in for lunch last Saturday. The atmosphere is small and quaint in a great part of town. The initial greeting and service was efficient but not very friendly. English was not seemingly a comfort zone. The menu is delightful for various seafood appetizers. We were going to try the oyster along with all the other options...but... More

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.
