We started a the chicharron squid, which was delicious. Main course was the fish (just average) and the pork chops, which was great. Ambiance could be a litlle more cozy. Service was great.

Brought my two girlfriends here on a recent trip to Bogota. Service is just okay but the food was outstanding! We loved the creativity in the dishes (we ordered all seafood dishes) and were particularly impressed with the seafood plantain appetizer. If you want to...More

Based on their menu and reviews from TripAdvisor, we were expecting innovative cuisine in a cozy setting. The reality is quite different. The service was friendly but totally incompetent. They brought a short list of daily specials, and told us this was their menu. The...More

We went to Mini Mal because it was so well reviewed in guidebooks. The food was a fusion of local and modern. It was good. But it was pricey in Colombian standards. Also, the clientele was definitely touristy. I mean, don't avoid it, but just...More

OMG!!!! The food is so tasty. Try it you will not be disappointed. We had "Tumaco, green curry tenderloin, red tigers, and let's go to the beach". EVERYTHING was SO good. If in doubt ask, Simón, our waiter (seriously!!!!).

This is what food is all about. Service, ambiance, ingredients, creativity. It's all there in abundance. I had the "Lomitos con Curry" and it was delicious. The appetizers (I had the "pica-pica") and the desserts are also excellent. Bogota has great food but this place...More

This small restaurant is also the base of a design bureau. The fusion food served here is an amazing mix of the most delicious Colombian flavors. Coastal recipes meets traditional fruit desserts, along with some delicacies that are exotic even for the locals. I have lived here for a long time and this place is a revelation.
