Criterion was recommended by a couple of friends; however, it was not what you would expect of a “5 stars” restaurant. The waiters were very insistent trying to push the most expensive items on the menu, and kept on serving more wine even though the...More

The brunch is one of the best in Bogota - great selection of food which is so tasty. A perfect way to spend a Sunday morning with friends and family. The mimosas are also lovely and constantly refilled. Very recommended!
