Very cool place. Decor is superb. Service is SUPERB. Most of the servers spoke English which was great, since every course had to be described. We did the 13 course tasting menu and wine pairings. Under approx $75 USD per person. It took 4 hours, but time flew by. Each course more amazing than the last. i do not eat... More

A truly wonderful experience. The food was a delight, not exceptional like a multi michelin star, but really fabulous. The experience with the hand washing and the smog over the coffee finca and the crab empanada that cracked like a crab shell was so much fun and such a treat. The wait staff tried really hard, were not quite up... More

This was my first visit, it's a small place with good service. The use of the modernist techniques in the cooking it's attractive. The food was good, I would have chosen different wines for the pairing. This kind of experience is not cheap, but surely it will cost much more outside of Colombia. If you are going in the night...

My boyfriend and I went there. Comparing with the fine dining restaurants that I have been to this is really average. I mean the food was good, a nice interpretation of the traditional colombian food but the service was really not good - the just don't get the basics of good service. You cannot bring food when someone is on... More

Very creative place and perhaps not for everyone. Food was delicate and creative. Service was very good, however, i visited at lunch and the place was not very busy. But the service at the time was spot on. If for lunch and taking the small set menu, one can choose the entree, however, the app and the dessert is preplanned.... More

We loved this restaurant, with its very creative and inventive cuisine. the whole evening was a great gastronomical journey, with many different taste and visual sensations. on the whole the staff were attentive and helpful. at times seemed rather absent. But would recommend anyone interested in food to try it.

Thank mcplc
