Oh la la Restaurant offers a range of local dishes interpreted by a French Chef and its local Colombian team. Its technique and savoir faire is essentially French with a definite Costeño twist. In a corner of the famous and trendy Getsemani neighbourhood, the restaurant is located in an old colonial house of the Vargas family. The walls and decoration tell about their story. We offer a menu a la Carte as well as daily specials in accordance with seasonal products available from street sellers and local markets. Some of you will be delighted to hear that it is really important to offer some vegetarian alternative. Our gnocchi de yuca with blue cheese are delicious. We are transferring our savoir-faire through some cooking lessons for individuals and for groups for up to 15 people. Atelier de cuisine are also available for children party. Oh la la is located in the heart of trendy Getsemani, on the famous Calle Larga and esquina Vargas.
