I was quite excited at going to this restaurant as i'd heard a lot about it from guide books and the internet. The idea of showing up and being taken on a 'journey' through Mexican cuisine awakened my curiosity and I was expecting an experience that aroused the senses. In actual fact, the food was pretty standard Mexican fair and nothing particularly to write home about. Although it was certainly not unpleasant, it was far from the taste sensation I was imagining.
There's no food menu or a price list, just a drinks list. You're therefore blind as to how much the cost of the meal will be. So, to start with, I ordered a Chipotle Margarita, which was delightful, and my girlfriend, who doesn't like alcohol, asked for a lemonade (which wasn't on the menu). In fact, there wasn't much choice in the way of non-alcoholic drinks, as the menu's 98% alcohol.
For the food, the waitress explained to us how there's no menu and that the chef just cooks what they have basing the ingredients on your preferences. I was up for trying anything whilst my girlfriend asked that no seafood or mushrooms be included in any of the dishes.
The service was very good and my girlfriend and I shared small tasting dishes, which were periodically brought out. They were all tasty yet nothing extraordinary. We had guacamole with tortillas (which had huge pieces of coarse salt in it making the dish, at times, too salty), Huitlacoche which are Crispy corn dumplings with corn fungus and cheese (crunchy and cheesy but otherwise quite bland), Turkey with spicy Mole chocolate sauce and roasted pineapple (really rich and tasty sauce), stewed beef (nothing special, just meaty really with the flavour of an unrefined and under seasoned gravy). I ended the savoury food offering with a prawn, avocado and tomato sauce filled tortilla, as that's all they had left and, as my girlfriend doesn't like seafood, I indulged in it myself (the best dish of the meal - delicious!). For the desert we shared a slice of cherry chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream (nice and tasty).
Aside from the prawn dish and Margarita, the whole experience was slightly underwhelming, particularly when I paid the bill. Although, we'd had 5 dishes between us, the portions of each dish were very small so the bill came as quite a surprise when it turned out to be $160,000 COP.
I won't be going back as it's too expensive and there's no value for money (aside from the Margaritas). The food was okay but nothing out of the ordinary. For Mexican, in Bogota, I'd recommend 'Enchiladas' in La Candelaria. Much cheaper yet similar flavours.
