Bad food,stale bread,warm salad,tough beef,underpoured cocktails,cheap decor,no parking,horribly over priced.....why bother to go? This place is the sister to some formerly nice restaurants in Bogota,but the entire chain is now a mess. Avoid this slop house.

We went to the restaurant because of the reviews, however, this is definitely not to be rated five stars. Positives (reason for the 2 stars): 1) the service: the waiter was extremely attentive, friendly and quick; 2) decor: although not a luxurious ambiance it was well decorated and neat. Negatives: 1) the food: we ordered two appetizers. The octopus carpaccio... More

It was a special event for a group of about 20 well-seasoned and demanding travellers - and we were all very well taken care of. High calibre service and food.

I was very Impressed with this restaurant and service. Located opposite the Holiday Inn Express, and getting there mid evening I went as it was a handy location. Food is very good and the service is friendly but sharp - Something which is not to easy to find in Panama. I went there the following night and treated to the... More

The location directly across from our hotel, Holiday Inn Express, made this restaurant the obvious choice. I was impressed by the ambiance of the space and courtesy of the hostess. We don't speak enough Spanish to order (only enough to start a bar fight) so we were assisted by the bilingual hostess. My Cosmopolitan cocktail and our Argentinian wine were... More

The level of service and quality of the meal is unsurpassed. Sophisticated menu and dishes make this restaurant a superb experience. This is my second experience at Rausch and the Magret of duck as well as the Boullabaise is wonderful. The 6 course meal is extraordinary and very reasonably priced for the level of the quality which is unsurpassed in... More

We had the Degustation Menu without the wine. There were 7 courses. As a chef i have to say it was really good but not the standards we are used to in Europe. The Service was very good. They explained us every course and have been very attentive

Went there based on some recommendations. We started with the waiter bringing a bountiful basket of breads...about 6 options from baguettes to brioche. All seemed wonderful until we took our first bite...none of them were warm....all of them were room temperature and the taste of the rolls were just average. We then had several appetizers: Tuna tartar, soft shell crab... More

My score (average) is not because this is an average restaurant, but compared to restaurants of the same standard. We visited on Boxing Day and definitely had a great dinner and a great evening. The food was well prepared, presented with care, but for a restaurant with this kind of a reputation it could have been slightly better. My meat... More
