Ceviche is a shrimp salsa mix.. the chicken sandwich is not so great tasting molten cheese .. maybe not the best thing to order here but certainly no positive surprise.

I’m not sure this is the official name of the restaurant, but it is very good. First of all, the service and our server were first rate. My husband shared a empanada appetizer which was very good. My husband had what I would have called...More

The location is fantastic. It's all downhill from there. Bad service, bad coffee, terrible price. I can only recommend it if you really, really, really want to sit down.

During the museum visit, I stoped for a snack in the Cafe Botero; for a cafe is missing more options for small snacks, cakes and "cafes" things. But if you sit outside, can admire the Botoro sculptures at the plaza.

The food was only okay, but the view was great. Sitting outside in the shade was a perfect way to enjoy the Plaza Botero and escape some of the insanity with the vendors. Would recommend coffee or beer to recharge while enjoying the atmosphere.

We combined the lunch at Cafe Botero with the visit to the Museum. The venue offers both indoor and outdoor seating. The service was good. The wine selection is interesting. The food delicious. Service a bit slow. Very convenient if you are visiting the museum.

The pictures in the review are from Laboratorio de Café , not Café Botero. And the descriptions and reviews all match to Laboratorio de Café,,not sure why they call it Cafe Botero ,, regardless the Coffee is the BEST

The best thing about this place is the view of Plaza Botero. That alone guarantees it 4 stars. A snack or a glass of wine can be enjoyed while watching the action in the Plaza will make for a memorable experience. I would not make...More
