I have been to Bukura many times and I am never disappointed by the high standards, strong flavors and excellent service. The owner really puts a lot of emphasis on the freshness and preparation of his meat and fish which is evident in the delicate flavors and textures that distinguishes Bukura from most restaurants in Bogota. Without question, Bukura has the best lamb in Colombia but the high standards are prevalent of all types of meat. Great for a big lunch.

We have been at Bukara for lunch and I cannot wait to go there for dinner. Everything is perfect there. The owner personally offers you specials and he also speaks perfect English. He recommended us wonderful fish options with homemade fettuccine and perfectly cooked vegetables. The desserts are delicious prepared in the best European traditions.
The location is very safe and very close to Bogota World
Trade Center.

The host is a Croatian expat who has lived in Germany apparently for a number of years. It is here that he has clearly picked up his drive to deliver perfection.
He is enthusiastic about his food, where he sources it and how it is prepared before it ends up on your plate and I his enthusiasm pays off as the food is excellent.
It is a little out of the way and can be difficult to find but get dropped at the world trade centre and walk past the sculpture and through the passage way into the courtyard against the church where you will find the flames in the evening.
Very busy at lunch time so book ahead.

It is located in one of the best areas of Bogotá, just behind the World Trade Centre, in a lovely setting with other trendy places. The food is very international, mainly a mix of German, Croatian and Colombian, heavy on meat. I had a delicious goulash and fried organic veal meatballs. For dessert I had an ice kaffe, actually more like an affogato, for which they used their own vanilla ice cream. All was superb. I found the place unusual by it emphasis on German and Eastern European food, as most trendy restaurants in Bogotá are French or Italian oriented. The very friendly waiter introduced us to the head chef who told us that the owner has his own farm from where their lamb, veal and other meats come from.
