Cut little place across from a market. I got the mushroom soup and was impressed with presentation and taste. We stopped here with another couple and the atmosphere was very romantic and laid back. I would come back.

This place in the middle of Bogota, specialises in mushrooms. We knew this from the start but might catch some people by surprise. Inside it is candle-lit so you need your torch to read the menu. The food is good and so was the service.

The place for mushroom lovers. Limited options but every dish we tried was delicious. A very good option late night in Candelaria.

A lovely small restaurant specialising in meat and mushrooms. We probably would've had a better choice if we understood the menu more fully, as we don't speak Spanish! Given this difficulty, we still managed to communicate and we had a fabulous meal.

This place was terrible. The food was OK, but the service was terrible. Our server was rude. We asked about the fondue and our server failed to check or mention that it was out until well after we had ordered. 5 of the other things...More

A bit expensive for the what you get but the food was hearty and tasty. It was quiet when we went (Monday night) but I imagine when full that it would have a great atmosphere

After being tempted in by the initial free tasting of the mushrooms. You find it a dark restaurant, hard to read the menu. The natural lemonade is quite special and worth ordering just to see what happens. The food come on a sort of Swiss...More
