So, 4 tortilla-based dishes and more than an hour waiting. In fact, still we haven't tried our food, waiters say nothing, no even a single plate of totopos or something to get through the waiting time, even drinks run out. Nothing deserves such long waiting...More

Nice and well appointed Mexican restaurant with excellent food, selection of tequilas and music show (mariachi) after 10-11 PM. Can also dance in between the tables as the night rolls away.

El Techo Mexicano is located on the fifth (5o.) and last floor of the El Retiro Shopping Center in the heart of the Zona Rosa in Bogotaá, Colombia. We are popular not only among our colombian costumers but with the mexicans men and women who live in Bogotá these days. We have an awesome "shrimp tostada"! We also. at night, have a very well choosen music and a mariachi "serenata" from our famous Clásico mariachi of William Guevara. Excelent margaritas and a variety of tequilas make us a very interesting alternative in the Zona Rosa zone.
