The restaurant is in a beautiful old house in La Candelaria. The food is very good ! Try the Lulada ! The sancocho and fish dishes are the best.

Definitely a five-star location. We were a group of seven and everyone was totally impressed with the food. Some of the dishes are from the Cali area. I had a seafood dish from that area ... can't recall the name now. The limonada de coco is delicious; I've only had one better in two months in Colombia. Service was also... More

Went for lunch, the food was very good and the service was top notch. I ate on the outside roof terrace and the views out to the west were amazing. Worth eating there just for the views but the food does not disappoint.

Great lunch at Fulanitos today, January 13. On the terrace with a great view we started with cocktails, then we had some small starters (empenadas and something with bananas). After that traditional Colombian main courses. Finished with postres and coffee. Very good and friendly service, 4 hungry persons satisfied for as little as €50 including 10% service.

My wife and I went to lunch at Fulanitos before we went on a tour of Casa de Narina (The President's House). The views upstairs on the 2nd floor are fantastic. You can see a good portion of the city to the west from the terrace. The food was pretty good. Colombian food is rather heavy to me, but the... More

This restaurant is located in la candelaria, downtown Bogota, I went in a long weekend was really good, the environment is really appealing, decorations are beautiful, food was good, we had sancocho and was very tasty, service was good and the neighborhood looks like you are in other place outside Bogota. Really recommended to try some Colombian food.

This is a typical restaurant in downtown Bogota. The food is typical from Valle del Cauca. You can eat meat, soup, sweet and salty bananas, empanadas and so on. It is necessary to make a reservation or arrive early.

lovely little restaurant at the edge of the Candelaria, great views over town and authentic food from the pacific side of Colombia (as i was told). Great for a romantic dinner overlooking the city. Prices reasonable and food good (not fab, but good)
