Merlin is a cute little restaurant. Although I wasn't really inspired from the menu at first sight, the very friendly waiter explained that they have the local speciality Ajiaco. I don't eat meat and he said, they can serve it without the chicken. It sounded...More

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

The interior of this restaurant is quite seductive however the food does not live up to the promise after first walk in. The service provided is of a high standard. The food however well presented is just quite bland.
