Description: At Quinta Camacho, one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Bogota, you will find DiVino Swiss House Restaurant which offers the most authentic Swiss cuisine in the city. Hosted in a beautiful house that preserves the architecture of the 1930s with an attractive decoration that allows you to be transported inside a traditional Swiss house.A well-designed menu with more than 40 specialties to choose among starters, entrees, various Swiss gastronomic specialities, homemade pastas, fresh fish, meat and veggi dishes.The fondues are offered in different forms: Not only the classic Cheese Fondue, based on selected and ripened cheeses prepared by a Swiss national, but also varieties such as fondues with mushrooms, fresh herbs or a combination with shrimp chowder. Meat fondues are prepared with finely sliced meat which is cooked in a housemade beef and wine broth. The raclette is another of the features of the house: Swiss cheese ripened by the traditional way, melted slowly under a special raclette oven to get this special creamy texture and served with small boiled potatoes and homemade pickles. In addition, guests can choose from over 12 different options of side dishes like ham, sirloin medallion, shrimps or cured and air-dried beef tenderloin, called Viande de Grisons.Desserts are a must at DiVino Swiss House! Homemade Apfelstrudel, frish out of the oven with a creamy Vanilla Ice cream, the famous Chocolate Mousse and of course, the Chocolate fondue with a selection of fruit and the ever famous marshmellows for the kids. The Tyrolean Hat, a hat shaped grill-on-the-table that allows each guest to prepare meat, poultry, fish and shell fish roasting to the point of its preference, acompanied with finely sliced fresh veggis, noodles, different dipps, homemade chips and fresh salad. The Swiss Brunch, offered only on Saturday and Sunday mornings, featuring home made Swiss specialities is a a delightful way to let Mom’s rest and spend the weekend with her family without stress.Let you tantalize by the imported chocolates, home made truffes and pralines to enjoy or give away. The selection of imported Swiss liqueurs and coffees are the delight of the frequent and occasional customers visiting “the” Swiss restaurant in the Capital.DiVino Swiss House, offers several settings and a special lounge on the 2nd. floor for private, social and business events of all kinds. Free WiFi service, special bathroom and all facilities for the disabled or handicapped are available. Open Tuesday to Friday for lunch and dinner. Saturday for brunch, lunch and dinner. Sunday brunch and lunch.

“In English... y es Espanol! It is # 1 for just reason! The best! Es # 1 con razon! Lo mejor de todo!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

I planned to visit great restaurants and a different one each night during my week in Bogota. I tried this one third and it was so good that I had to go a few more times! I tried four different dishes here and various desserts. The service is super, but most of all the food, atmosphere, and value is the best! Everything we ate was terrific and we enjoyed a bottle of White Zinfandel during each meal and still spend FAR less than in any other place for the best of food and service. For now on, each time I visit Bogota I will also visit DiVino. It is within walking distance of Zona G and well worth the walk! Just wonderful! It is obvious the owner clearly cares! He is from Switzerland and the food is simply the best. Decent size portions and terrific tastes all the way through dessert! WITH a nice bottle of wine, the most expensive meal AND dessert we only paid around $100 USD FOR TWO PEOPLE. If we had skipped the wine and dessert and had THE AVERAGE PRICED MEAL COST ONLY about $15 USD per person!

Tuve intencion de visitar a various sitios de comida rica durante mi visita a Bogota. La tercera noche comimos ahi y era tan rico que tuve que ir otra vez! Probe cuatro platos y postres y una botella de vino de California EEUU con mi pareja quien es de Bogota originalmente. El servicio fue super y la comida mejor aun! Y el valor increible!!! Cada vez que vaya a Bogota voy a visitar a DiVino! De verdad es DiVino! Esta en distancia de caminar de la Zona G y sin duda vale caminar unos minutos mas para comer esta comida tan rica! Es obvio que el dueno le importa que lo pasen bien! El es originalmente de Suiza y la comida es maravillosa! Sin vino pueden comer aqui por menos de $30,000 pesos por cada persona! De verdad increible para lo bueno que es todo!

English:
Fortunately I ate at several restaurants and will share my honest opinion of these relative to others. To be fair I will consider: atmosphere, food (quality , portion, presentation and taste), service level and value. In order of best to worst: DiVino Swiss House, Restaurante 69 Oyster Bar, Tapas Macarena, Pesquera Jaramillo en calle 93, Astrid y Gaston, Andres DC Carnes de Res, Hamburgesas el Corral, Crepes and Waffles, y Harrys Bar.
DiVino Swiss house was terrific and #1 here with just reason as was 69 Oyster Bar and I enjoyed far better food and value at el Corral burgers and Creps and Waffles than the horrible quality and service of overpriced Harrys Bar which is way overated perhaps by friends. Of the places we visited DiVino Swiss House is SIMPLY THE BEST!

Spanish:
Afortunadamente comi en varios restaurants y compartire my honesta opinion de esos relatives a otros. Para ser justo considerare: Atmosfera, comida (calidad, porción, presentación y gusto), nivel de servicio, y valor. En orden de mejor a peor: DiVino Swiss House, Restaurante 69 Oyster Bar, Tapas Macarena, Pesquera Jaramillo en calle 93, Astrid y Gaston, Andres DC Carnes de Res, Hamburgesas el Corral, Crepes and Waffles, y Harrys Bar.
Me encanto DiVino y es # 1 con razón y 69 Oyster Bar también es super! Prefiero Hamburguesas Corral or Crepes and Waffles antes de desperdiciar su plata en Harrys cual tiene rango bueno en esta pagina pero creo que la majoridad de los 23 comentarios deben ser de amigos o empleados. De los sitios cuales visitamos DiVino Swiss House es simplemente EL MEJOR!

“Hands Down the Best!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The entrance and building are so charming I wanted to sit outside under the stars. Greeted at the front door like family and once inside I wasn't sure if I was back in Europe or still in Bogota! So charming. The service and personal attention from one of the owners was such that I didn't care if the food was good or not. But it was! The Fondue, hand made sausages (without MSG, mechanically processed fillers, little fat & no gluten) and vegetables were outstanding. I cant wait to go back!
