About
Oh la la Restaurant offers a range of local dishes interpreted by a French Chef and its local Colombian team. Its technique and savoir faire is essentially French with a definite Costeño twist. In a corner of the famous and trendy Getsemani neighbourhood, the restaurant is located in an old colonial house of the Vargas family. The walls and decoration tell about their story. We offer a menu a la Carte as well as daily specials in accordance with seasonal products available from street sellers and local markets. Some of you will be delighted to hear that it is really important to offer some vegetarian alternative. Our gnocchi de yuca with blue cheese are delicious. We are transferring our savoir-faire

Perfect location, It's one street off the center of all the loud festivity to enjoy a tranquil meal and then join the fun in Getsemani. The food is delicious, which elevates "criolla" food with a touch of French. The Cvi che and the risotto was...More

All across Colombia there are great brunch places serving fantastically decorated french toast and pancakes yet this one serves plain pancakes with no topping. Totally tasteless.

A very good place for breakfast (they also serve lunch and dinner) in Getsemani and a short walk from Centro Historico. Fresh fruit juices made from various Colombian fruits and good meals. Service is excellent and they are genuinely friendly.
