This Candelarian house has so many floors and individual niches that you nearly forget about the reason you came here while exploring the place. The staff is friendly and advises you correctly, the menu is small but fine and the meals excellent. The Grey Cat...More

We have gone there twice - once for dinner and a second time just for drinks. We love the ambience with its small quirky spaces. The drinks were very good especially the sangria. The food was good but not spectacular

This is definitely a place you have to visit if you are in Bogota. Great atmosphere, live music and drinks. Love it.

A beautiful little restaurant with good food, although potentially a little overpriced in comparison to other Bogota restaurants. Live entertainment is great, and there is an awesome selection of craft beers.

We didn't eat, as we had alternate plans (and had heard the food here wasn't the main draw), but it was the perfect spot to grab a glass of wine before dinner! Loved all the small rooms—definitely feels as though you're one of only a...More

One of my favorite things during my visit. It was a fantastic multi-level restaurant with live music, countless private areas/coves/rooms, and delicious food. The beef dishes were all great.

You may have some difficulty finding this restaurant. It's in the alley directly behind the small square (opposite the little church). The interior is very attractive, it looks like you're seated inside rooms around a small courtyard. We ate a fish dish which was good...More

The Gato Gris comes from a story that long ago, a beautiful woman used to sit on the balcony of her house (which is now the restaurant), petting a gray cat on her lap. A passing paramour fell in love with her so her husband moved them away, and people never heard from them again. Only the gray cat remained, wandering around the roof of the house. music live all day 8 pm atmosphere is bohemian.
