It was incredible. We ordered the chef's menu, which covers all senses. We had it paired with wine, our friends pointed out that next time they would prefer to order a couple of bottles instead. it was a great experience, all the "momentos" were perfect and service was good. We spoke with the Chef, hopefully the many other restaurants he is opening will not deter his attention from this culinary heaven

I was amazed by this restaurant being from this town, its a whole challenge to what you consider tradicional first class food. Great taste, abundant food, exquisite sensation-courses that involve all of your five senses. A definite must.

This is not an ordinary dining experience. El Cielo offers a very creative service.
There is no menu that you can choose from. You decide whether you want 10 or 18 "moments": I will not describe them (part of the emotion is the surprise), but many of them are very original.
We had a very good time, but to tell the truth, the food, which should be the star of the night in an excellent restaurant, was not outstanding. Some of the dishes were just regular, while some were really delicious.
Overall, the restaurant is very nice, and the service is excellent.

This is not a regular restaurant, actually food is the only common restaurant factor: light, music, number of plates, tastes, flavors, seats and time to eat... Don't come here if you are in a hurry

El Cielo (Heaven) can be described as more of an entertainment experience rather than a culinary delight. After you go once would you enjoy it as much the second time? Probably not. We had an excellent night to celebrate my wife’s birthday but I think the food took second or even third place. We chatted to the people at the adjoining table (from Bogota) and had a fun time with them. You can choose the number of “moments” – we chose the maximum, 20. Each “moment” is a different experience, appealing to all the senses, so I won’t spoil it by mentioning them. I think the food definitely

Some “moments” were more memorable than others but it is a novel experience, well worth going. We were there for over 2 hours and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our neighbour joked that the 21st moment was when the bill arrived!
