This place is absolutely wonderful. Imaginative, flavorful food and in the right portions. Filling but not heavy and everything combines so thoughtfully. I am excited for their menu change, our last two trips here have had the same menu. That said, I will miss items from this group. The lobster tails, three baby ones, with asparagus risotto is a divine... More

After reading wonderful reviews, our family venture into a new culinary experience at Cocotte. We encounter a charming and warm bistro atmosphere. Service was attentive to details and food was authentic French cousine. From the Tuna Tartare to the Duck and the gratine potatoes. My sister had had the beef steak which was outstanding in flavor and tenderness. Our surprise... More

Every Time we come to Cali we come here and every time it gets better and better. A quiet lovely French bistro that transports me to Montmartre every single time. This time we asked for a table for 15 and everything was perfect. That is not easy to do. And they pulled it off with elegance and poise. Food has... More

Quality French food. I had the duck, it was very good. The well known wine I selected appeared to be sold out.

This restaurant is tiny, and reservations are a must. The food is excellent, if on the pricey side. The chef Remi is talented and his wife takes care of the customers. The menu is limited and only changes once a month, but everything on it is superb.

Excellent food and service. Beautiful and romantic setting. One the best spots in Cali to have a great meal and spend the evening listening to French music!

It is a small restaurant with limited choices (4 dishes) but they are all very tasteful. If you really want to go there, better make a reservation. The chef changes the dishes once a month. The starters are small, but also very good. Deserts are also delicious. Price is fair.

Real French food. Masterfully cooked and beautifully presented. The place feels like a little neighborly bistro in Paris. The husband and wife team do an excellent job both at the dining area and kitchen.

The place is tiny, with only four tables downstairs and a large one upstairs, which is the one I recommend most. The food is amazing but portions are on the small side (and yes even by colombian standards, not american ones). Its very intimate, think, you can clearly hear the table next to you conversing level intimate. Its probably best... More
