Astrid y Gaston – Bogotá

Astrid y Gaston – Bogotá

Astrid y Gastón in Lima is arguably the finest restaurant in Latin America. But A&G in Bogotá was a huge disappointment. Barely average!

Misia – Bogotá

Leo Espinoza, who has gained the reputation of being one of Colombia’s rising culinary stars. Misia offers breakfast and traditional Colombian comfort food in a clean, casual setting.

Criterión – Bogotá

Criterión – Bogotá

Local celebrity chefs Jorge and Mark Rausch serve up unique menu with local ingredients dressed up in a French tuxedo. Very popular and usually busy.

Harry Sasson – Bogotá

Harry Sasson – Bogotá

Harry Sasson is one of Bogotá’s most acclaimed restaurants. But noticeable errors in execution by the waiters and the kitchen staff left a bit of a tarnish on our visit. Still, a commendable showing.

Rafael – Bogotá

Rafael – Bogotá

Overall, the meal was very good. Reasonable prices, about as expected for this quality of food in this ambiance.

Dos Gatos y Simone – Bogotá

Dos Gatos y Simone – Bogotá

I’m going to sum this up. Although I have only spent a limited time in Bogotá, this is about the only place downtown or in La Candelaria that I can recommend for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

La Puerta Falsa – Bogotá

La Puerta Falsa – Bogotá

The staff was friendly and attentive. But I can say that about 80% of the restaurants I’ve visited over the past few years. Hardly a reason to go there for breakfast.

The Burgers at Hooters – Bogotá

The Burgers at Hooters – Bogotá

You don’t go to Hooters for the burger. But if you’re there, and you have the urge for a burger or don’t want the stomach acid that accompanies a basket full of three-alarm wings, they have a pretty good cheeseburger to fill that bill.

Brot – Bogotá

Brot – Bogotá

A warm and pleasant ambiance, friendly, attentive service, and fabulous bread and other food items make Brot an excellent choice for breakfast or lunch. Or perhaps just enjoying a fresh-baked croissant and a frothy cappuccino.

The Burgers at Burger Kill – Bogotá

The Burgers at Burger Kill – Bogotá

This burger was good enough to make it into our list of top five burgers in Bogotá. But we preferred the burger at La Xarcutería to the one we received at Burger Kill. There’s no sham ein being a runner-up.

Elcielo – Bogotá

Elcielo – Bogotá

Elcielo offers a theme-based tasting menu only. But they somehow pull it off with panache. Near perfect execution and flawless service make Elcielo Bogotá’s top dining attraction.
