I used to visit this restaurant with pleasure on a regular basis sometimes even once a week. We would often bring business guests and even large groups over for lunch and generated a lot of business.

I enjoyed a cheerful dinner at Botero. The very corner where it lays is not particularly fancy, but the restaurant's interiors are nice. They mixed some sort of old french style with Botero's paintings. Fine food, reasonable price.
