Ajiaco de tomate soup, the best! Number one choice also for vegetarians! The owner, and also well known cuisine critic and writer, makes sure every thing is perfect! Food, ambiance and service! Not to miss if you're in town!

Silly me to think that the ceviche may be fresh. I take the blame. But after 3 days of being sick because of it I must let you know. I ordered a ceviche and the sobrebarriga, as a few hours later I'd learn, the ceviche was in a pretty bad state and my body reacted badly to it, gladly I... More

The menu looked good but the food was not. Sticky tables. We ordered a tomato soup but it was sweet. Service quite fair.

First get in the restaurant and let them know you'll sit outside, if that is your choice. There are 2 entrances to the restaurant complex,one from the Plaza Mayor(The cathedral side... More

We loved the food -- the Colombian soups accompanied by rice and avocado and made with lentils and beef. Great wine, nice atmosphere. Lovely sitting either indoors or outdoors. I've eaten their twice now on two different visits to Villa de Leyva.

Excellent service, live music, and of course the food, make this small restaurant a must when visiting Villa de Leyva. The tomato soup, yes I said tomato soup, is a meal in itself, and with all of its ingredients, is very tasty. The flank steak is another winner. There is a good variety of food options on the menu. Make... More

Don't miss this gem of a restaurant. The owner acts as a very welcoming hostess and makes you feel at home in her restaurant. It is a bit cheeky that she has pictures of herself featured in magazines all over, but What can i say, she is quite photogenic...The prices are fair and the food is delicious. I can highly... More

From all our memories, from the flavours of our local markets. With ingredients that we love, but sometimes we forgot how to use.Tierra Buena invites you to discover a few dishes of our own. It is not typical but, it is our’s. It is the new colombian taste fussion.
