Atop the beautiful Monserrate Mountain, the citizens of Bogota have been able to enjoy the best French cuisine in the city for the past 31 years. Since then, the restaurant has become famous for its gastronomic seasons, present throughout the year. Fish in time of lent, a French menu in May and June, lobster in September, wine and champagne in December: always generating new and delicious options for its guests. This colonial building, whose decoration evokes the tranquil and romantic mood of the city in the XIX century, is today the ideal place to taste delicate meats, poultry, rabbit and fish, with the soft whisper of the piano in the background, or if you prefer, on our panoramic balcony with the beautiful sights of Bogota at your feet.
Wao...what a view...great service and my Salmon Morrón with mushroom sauce on a bed of cream cheese and red pimentos!!! Ummmmm....delicious!!! Equally delicious was the “Saumon aux fruits rouges te vodka” that one of my friends ordered!!!
To top it off...It is one of the most romantic restaurants I’ve ever been to...highly recommended!!!

This is a terrific place for a friendly business lunch-- sharing delicious tapas among an every-expanding table of colleagues and new acquaintances certainly helps to keep the conversation flowing! We enjoyed series of classics, including wonderful grilled octopus, meatballs, and slices of ham and manchego cheese. We also went through several servings of crusty rolls. The service was excellent. This is a very popular restaurant-- by the time I had to leave to go to another meeting the place was packed.

I've been to Bogotá several times, and Oyster Bar 69 (that's the official name) is the best restaurant I've been to.
The ambiance was classy and comfortable at the same time. The service was great. Every single thing was delicious, starting with the bread, house-made rosemary crackers and accompaniments for them.
I had the seafood croquettes to start - full of seafood and delicious. My sister has the little crab claws in garlic butter. We couldn't stop eating the butter. For entree we both got the pork special (it was Thursday), which was a huge pork shank in a light sauce made from the vegetables it had been cooked with. The shank was perfectly cooked. I asked for extra sauce. For dessert, I had the warm strawberries in a wine black pepper sauce with ice cream. I'm going to try to make the sauce at home.
A very memorable lunch. Don't miss it!

I recently stayed at the Hilton and enjoyed breakfast every day at the La Ventana. Nice buffet with a multitude of interesting fruits and other local items. I really appreciated the variety and freshness

This beautifully designed restaurant is a labor of love on the part of Colombian chef Catalina Mojica and Italian chef Simone de Cia. The menu changes daily, and it combines both authentic colombian dishes and mediterranean fare. It's inventive, fresh, meticulously prepared, and delicious. The...MoreGrazie Mille Robert!

A unique and cozy place in Chapinero Alto with amazing pastries, baked empananadas and excellent coffee.
Cozy restaurant in the ChaoineroSpanish neighborhood. Multiple meno choices, most of them chicken, meat and lamb, but few vegetarian options. Get the quinoa salad, with mango, lettuce, avocado, cashews. It's great. I wanted also the veggies quiche, but they were out. Prices are reasonable. I also liked the mango lemonade.
English and Spanish music playing.

It’s hard to fathom why Madison is so highly rated. The burgers were fine, nothing special. Buns were too soft and fell apart. French fries were very decent. Appetizers were good- we had grilled edamame and jalapeño ‘balls’. The location is good, it’s really dark inside though. Service friendly. Meh.

We came in April with clients and co-workers. Just outstanding. Menu is comprised of tapas, we had a combination of different choices; empanadas, oxtail, tuna tartare, honestly I was so busy eating I wasn't taking note of all the different tapas. The chef/owner took a personal interest in our meal, and offered outstanding wine pairings with the tapas.
Service was attentive and the crew spoke good English. We were lucky, we came on a Monday night - apparently there's a months long waitlist on Friday/weekends nights...not surprising given what we experienced.
Would absolutely go back and highly recommend. For 7, with alcohol and dessert and service fee included, came to $325USD. Very very good value.
