Stumbled across this place while visiting the mall (the restaurant is on a street next to the mall) checked out the menu ..they had a English version posted near the door. It had various vegetarian options. Decide to have dinner that same evening. Arrived half an hour before closing and Sara the chef/owner greeted us. We went upstairs to a quite nice dining room. Daniel our server was excellent. We had two varieties of soup both delicious and a stuffed vegetarian cucumber dish which was awesome and Chicken Diabla. Daniel recommended the chicken. Everything we had was amazing. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the achiote sauce was hot but tasty. The hasselback style potatoes were great and the chicken came with a sweet and sour type cucumber salad that was the perfect accompaniment to cut the heat of the sauce. Ok here’s the awesome part.. after we ordered Sara came and reviewed our selection as we asked for some substitutions so she wanted to make sure our food allergies were addressed and we knew what we ordered. Outstanding service. One of our best meals on out trip to Colombia. Go! You’ll love it smaller menu but not a bad thing on it. We will go back.

We went there based on the excellent TripAdvisor rating.
A nice comfortable place in Usaquen, close to the park.
Roomy, nice place; excellent service, friendly waiters, nice view from the second floor. Attractive menu.
But the food was very basic and ingredients were second class,
Tasteless, somewhat small portions, chewy meat, just very basic food.
Perhaps we would have been not so disappointed if the rating would have told us that we should expect average food only.
Price was lower than expected, which perhaps explains all the above.

Interesting combination of Colombian food. I had a tamarind chicken with dehydrated beets sauce that was juicy and tasty. Also tried a pork with drizzle of some secret sauce that was perfect. The EGG ROLL with Chicharrón de pollo sauce was one of the best egg rolls I’ve tasted.

Would go back just for the egg roll and order two orders to make a meal!
The Egg roll will not let you down if you like crunchy with a bacon like sauce.

We two went here tonight seeking a good local restaurant, after going to two of the big name places the previous two nights. Those two were excellent, but, in our opinion, this small neighborhood place is the best dining experience we have had in Bogota. Food is excellent and creative; service is excellent; the establishment is exactly what you might envision in a quality neighborhood place. We won't be back to Bogota for a while, but you can bet this will be our first stop!
