We did a sampler of multiple dishes and everyone was unique in presentation and taste. We had tuna, braised slow cooked beef, pork belly and a few more. If in Bogota a must try! Great price select to wines.

We were supposed to go to the restaurant next door, but they were closed. This happens a lot during our vacation, many restaurants close during Christmas and New Year. The Uber driver said the Donostia was very good, so we decided to try it. We...had a lovely dinner. Small plates which the four of us shared. We enjoyed the oxtail, squash blossoms and amazing risotto! The waiter recorded the potatoes And we were glad he did!!More

I have no words to describe how delicious the food in Donostia is. It is unique and exquisite local food with very friendly content for the palate. This is a mandatory stop when you visit Bogotá, Colombia if you want to have a gastronomic experience...with its local food and great service, thanks for all.More

Went to this restaurant for lunch while visited Museo National. 1. Tried to make reservation through Restorando, but restaurant does not accept reservation for solo travelers, only for two people and more 2. Took my chance and just walked in. Was greeted by friendly servers...and seated 3. Оrdered famous,Osso Buco. Asked waiter for a marrow bone spoon, wich was helpfully provided 4. Here comes the dish. Warm outside, cold inside and bone marrow completelly frozen 5. Here comes the check with tips included without asking. OK, service was good, but food sucks. Better avoid.More

We are sorry for what happened. It is a total shame for us. We have only to ask for a sincere apology. We do not know what happened in the kitchen, a very serious mistake. How sad that it qualifies our food as sucks. Years...More

An amazing selection of dishes, a combination of vegetables and superb wine. Food is prepared to meet the most demanding gourmet. The wine selection was outstanding and not expensive.

Been a de times, always good service and good food. Surprised by 55000 peso uncorking fee. Just an FYI, more then some wines on their list I think, although could be wrong. I’m fine with an uncorking fee, but that’s a high oneMore

Thank you very much for your opinion. You are absolutely right and we will take it into account. The truth with the latest tax reform in the country, which affected wine with 20% consumption, we had to understand differently the sale and purchase of wine....More

My husband and I went to Donostia while we were staying in La Macarena on vacation. Tomas Rueda’s reputation lives up to the hype. The food was incredible. My husband and I consider ourselves amateur foodies and are always looking for good restaurants when we...travel. Donostia ranks for us as one of the best meals we have ever had. We had lamb meatballs, langostines, and lamb osso busco. I will be dreaming of this food and can only hope that Tomas will open a restaurant closer to our home so we can enjoy his food more often. If you are ever in Bogotá, don’t skip a Tomas Rueda restaurant. It is worth it!More

A small restaurant in a very vibey neighborhood. The menu offers s great selection with some vegetarian options. The servers were very patient and helpful in explaining the menu to us as it was all in Spanish. The food was wonderful! They specialize in farm...to table and every dish was amazing. Highly recommend the Osobucco and risotto served in a pumpkin. Wine was pricey but expected. Fantastic experience.More

We were lucky enough to have our order placed with chef Tomas Rueda. I told him I was a vegetarian, and he said I came to the right place. I had a beautiful beet purée with quinoa, sour cream and avocado. My boyfriend and I...shared the house salad: a bed of sweet Potato mash with white beans, topped with lettuce and hearts of palm and a gorgeous, enormous, unsliced half of avocado. My boyfriend had a wonderful piece of local fish. The experience was excellent. Look forward to trying Their sister restaurant Tabula, next time I’m in Bogota.More
