This truly a remarkable place. The atmosphere and the service are outstanding and the food is simply superb!
What impressed me the most was the fact that Santiago, owner and chef, took the time to personally greet us at the table to make sure we...were well taken care of.
This kind of personalized service is hard to find around these places.
The only negative was that the place is a bit hard to find, some effort should be made to make it known to more people.More

Traveling the beautiful villages of Boyacá is always an amazing experience. Finding a GREAT restaurant near the highway makes the journey even better. El Candil is a restaurant you should visit: I tasted the best salmon there eventhough this place is not located near the...sea!. The service is good and the waiters are very kind. If you go there, make sure Santiago (the main chef and owner of the restaurant), tell you about his cooking and traveling experiences around the world. I reccomend to order any of the salmons in the menu or the "crema catalana" that it's as good as in Spain.More
We ordered many different dishes paella, beef, pork, salmon everything was delicious and didn't take too long to come out of the kitchen
The dessert was also incredibly tasty overall a very good experience along with the service
Come by if you are near you...won't regret itMore
