Gato Negro is a solid option on the park. Though there is nice indoor seating I always sit outside. They have good heaters and it's a nice set-up. The food is always solid, the drinks are good, and the service is polite and attentive. Gato Negro is not a destination type of restaurant, but it's a very solid option for... More

Saturday lunch at Gato Negro with just a few people in the place. An overall good experience,nice staff,clean,good food. I had the New York Strip, it was tasty but not tender. I can´t blame the restaurant . The only tender meat I have had in Colombia is the lomo, baby beef.

Excellent steak at a good price and once again the waiter worked with my appalling Spanish to make things go smoothly. I sat outside and really enjoyed the lively ambience of the area. Menu in English helped!

I have been here before for dinner and today tried lunch. Consistently great food and service. I ordered the Lomo Hollandaise which was at the right point and tasted very good.

Gato Negro has tasty food that's a bit pricey due to its location bordering Parque 93. Sit on the patio and people watch by candlelight. Service, like most places in Bogotá, is a bit sluggish unless you actively seek out or call waiters over.

The foods were excellent. The decoration were very classy with all the cat pictures and musical instrument on the wall. I had sea bass and my daughter had a green pasta with tomato based sauce without meat. Price was between $10 to $15.

We spent an evening here in a party of 5. We had to wait over two hours for food: one member of our party never received his order at all. Not until right at the end of the evening did the waiter say that the kitchen was one chef down: if they had told us earlier we could have amended... More
