Restaurant details
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Relatively inexperienced in Bogota, so I'm not sure about the "Price/Value" aspect of this review. However I had a great meal here for approx. 40$ US including tip and 1/2 bottle of wine. It coulld well be that this is on the pricy side for Bogota.

I have nothing negative to say about this restaurant. On the plus side: excellent and attentive service, prompt service for my orders, pleasant surroundings/decor (this restaurant seems to be associated with the Hotel Charleston, quite modern in style), well sized portions (exactly the right size in fact - I hate restaurants that assume quantity = quality).

The biggest surprise was the little appetizers that they put down before receiving what I ordered. One was a little dish of some kind of pate. I asked "what's this, then?". I was informed that it was chicken liver pate, and was expecting the worst. It was excellent!!! (I am quite familiar with, and very fond of, pate de foie gras, so I was thinking this is gonna be a disaster. Big surprise).

I will happily go back.

- nice presentation of the dishes
- excellent service by seasoned professionnals
- good soups
- nice location

Cons
- main too salty and lacking flavors

We hade dinner at this place. Everything was excellent until the mains arrived. The presentation looked very good but the taste disappointed. It wasn't terrible but very salty and lacking flavors. You would expect higher from a high end restaurant like this. Not bad overall but not great either. Many better options in the area
