The whole experience we had at Criterion was almost flawless. There is an excellent english speaking maitre d (who had only been there 4 days when we ate, yet had a complete understanding of the very extensive menu). There are also menus in english which is relatively uncommon in Columbia.
The menu is extremely extensive and caters for all tastes. The chef is obviously extremely talented, the balance of flavours in every dish was amazing. He appeared in the restaurant later in the evening was very likeable and very humble. I felt honoured to have met him.
The piece d resistance is the shared dessert. It is constructed by the pasty chef at the table before you. The end is result is a piece of edible art, however, the flavour of the food still reigns supreme, even with such a high level of theatrics.
The dining area is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Considering the quality I thought the meal was an absolute bargain.
This was a true high end eating experience that is within the top 3 eating experiences of my life.
If you eat at one nice restaurant in Bogota, make Criterion the one. You can thank me later!
