The service was good and the food well presented making this a good plae for lunch. It was claimed to be a French Bistro but there was a good mix of Italian as well.

La Cigale has been around for quite a number of years already. We visited last week, after a long time, and we were not impressed at all. There was nothing really attractive in the menu, which used to be so exciting! The restaurant has a reputation for its pork courses. We had two of them, which were just ok, with... More

We used to go to this restaurant and it was amazing! Last time food was so horrible we had to return it, food had ice and french fried were dripping in oil, just disgusting. Waiters were rude, never going back.

This is one of Bogota's most classic restaurant in the zone. Prices are convenient for a family celebration and food is very well served and presented. The staff is always willing to serve and give their best.

This is a nice restaurant with 3 stages and a nice terrace, the food was average, the Chuleton was not that tender, and the risotto with 3 tomatoes was great. The carpaccio was average also. Very good prices

This is a great place to eat pasta, risotto or meat of any type, although the menu was chosen by an expert and the menu is very well organized.

This a nice place, very well located in an area in Bogotá called zone G, the food is really good, I recommend the steaks and sausages! You can have a meal for two including an entree and dessert to share for around 60USD

Food is pretty good. I enjoyed the asparagus and artichoke starters. The onion soup tasted a bit on the lighter side and very skimpy with the cheese on top. I used to live in France, so I know the onion soup should have a nice layer of caramelized cheese. The duck breast tasted good, but presentation can be improved. Usually... More

They have a good variety of beers, the Duvel ,which I really like was present. We were able to have a very nice table on their extended terrace which has a lovely temperature and... More

I've been several times to this wonderful Belgian owned restaurant in Bogota's trendy Zona G, and it always made for the perfect evening. The food is delicious, and the seafood risotto deserves a special mention: creamy, with subtle perfumes of wine and saffron, it would not be out of place in the best restaurant of Italy. Belgian beers, scrumptious desserts,... More
