“Tastes worth Tasting”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

My husband and I went here as we were only able to find two tasting restaurants in Bogota, one of which had the same name as a restaurant we went to in Chile. At first we had our doubts about the place (appeared a bit stuffy). The bread and complementary appetizer left us wondering if we made the right choice. However, the tasting menu was amazing. Each dish was unique and flavorful. The chef, who was very welcoming and friendly, personally came out to describe each dish to us - in English. The tasting menu had just the right number of courses. We left full and satisfied – try the Caipirinha con Vodka. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be returning!

“Quiet & Dignified ... Superb Cuisine”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

This is a 5-star dining experience in restaurant with a warm and dignified ambiance. It's god for important business dinners, but equally pleasant for a social outing. Nice wine selection and a range of appealing entrees, continental cuisine and also french influences. Fairly priced

“My best dining experience in Colombia”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

This was an extraordinary experience. Next time I would order the daily tasting menu for 120,000 Colombian pesos, or $65 at 1,840 pesos to the dollar. I’m sure it would have been worth it. The new chef is a doll, the service is the best I’ve ever had in any restaurant. We sat near a quiet, modern waterfall with a view of the chef at work behind a glass wall. This was fine dining at its best. Buffalo steak was our favorite dish. It was truly one of my all-time best dining experiences, and I've had many. New chef is Nicolas Quintano.

“Delightful fusion of the best of Latin and modern Euro-American cuisine!”
Reviewed April 12, 2011

A lovely surprise! The young Peruvian chef has had some training outside Latin American...in Italy and Santa Fe, New Mexico, to name two places. His diverse background shows up in the menu. The dining room is lovely and the widely spaced tables allow for an intimate feel. Our waiters were attentive and professionally trained, better than found in many "high-end" Washington, D.C. or New York restaurants.
Priced comparably to better U.S. restaurants, but all in all, a beautiful package that makes for a lovely evening.
