We went there with friends and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The place is small and cozy, the tables are pretty close to each other and can be a little noisy but it didn’t bother us. We had for appetizers Tumaco, these little “buñuelos” made of...More

This would have to be one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at anywhere! EVERYTHING we ate was just so utterly delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Loved the simple innovative decor (we had a grater as our light fitting). The neighbourhood...More

The food lived up to the descriptions I’ve read about the place beforehand - local (Colombian, Caribbean, etc.) and perhaps a bit experimental. It was indeed quite enjoyable! My absolute favourites was my appetizer, which was called Pika Pikas or something like that (see picture),...More

As a group of 4, we unanimously have been delighted by the originality of the menu offered to us, a light gourmet cuisine, with a completely different touch. Flavors from the Amazon, from the coasts, in a subtle mix. A unique experience.

A innovative and artisan restaurant with Colombian food with an arty twist. The starters are the most interesting in taste and style. A bit nonchalant service but definitely worth a visit.

We loved it so much that we made another reservation in April, when we return to Bogota to fly back home. Our server was Miguel. He was great. Two drinks were two exotic Amazonian fruit juice neither of which was adulterated by anything else. It...More

We started a the chicharron squid, which was delicious. Main course was the fish (just average) and the pork chops, which was great. Ambiance could be a litlle more cozy. Service was great.

This small restaurant is also the base of a design bureau. The fusion food served here is an amazing mix of the most delicious Colombian flavors. Coastal recipes meets traditional fruit desserts, along with some delicacies that are exotic even for the locals. I have lived here for a long time and this place is a revelation.
