“Place suggestive”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Very good to spend alone, in couple or with friends good moments in an hystorical place: you'll find bands exibiting live (romantic songs and modern as well) with popular instruments, saxophones etc... full of restaurants, sometimes expencives. Good to spend dinner time and visit monuments nearby.

“Nice but "no gracias, go away!!!!"”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a pleasant plaza spoilt by the constant harassment by vendors. We spent two afternoons here for about an hour each, the constant attention is as bad as bad as Bali and not pleasant. It is nice to see and watch the world go by, if only some of the world would go away!!

“What a fun plaza!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The restaurants on the plaza are expensive, but the food is reasonably good. There is a wonderful Botero sculpture, and the evenings are filled with live music of all kinds. Yes, there are lots of vendors trying to make a living here, but they're not aggressive or obnoxious. I

“Good place for a few drinks at the end of the day”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Such a relax place just to see people coming and going, having some drinks and get some appetizers. There will be good musicians around. Make sure you agree on the price before they start singing. They do not work for tips as I thought.
