After living in Colombia for 1 year and a half, Bagatelle has become somewhat of a staple breakfast spot for my Saturdays. A quaint French-inspired bistro offers many delectible delights with French-Colombian names. Most dishes are Colombian in nature with a French spin. Nonetheless, the amount of dishes the restaurant puts out is pretty incredible, considering that they all are very well presented and do not vary in presentation.
With all of that being said, the service is absolutely terrible. The management couldn't care less about you as a customer. They know they have good food and the Colombian high society loves being seen here. While I didn't recognize any of them, my wife quickly points out some of the actors and news reporters that make this Saturday/Sunday spot their stomping ground.
So, in summary, the prices are so-so (basket of assorted bread, two bagels with egg and holandaise sauce, two juices, and two coffees will set you back about US$50), the service (like in 85% of restaurants in Bogota) is terrible, and they couldn't care less if you actually return. Nonetheless, I still am here a couple of times a month because when it comes to similar options, well, you are basically stuck.
