This was, for sure, the best food I've ever had. Despite being pricey, the experience worthes every single penny. As some dishes are accompanied by specific wines, there is no need to order beverages beside water. Very romantic environment.

El Cielo provides diners with sensory experiences beyond just the taste of the food. To some degree most "fancy" restaurants attempt this, generally with the food being solidly on center stage and other sensory elements supporting the overall experience subtly in the background. This is not the case at El Cielo, where the food is only one aspect of various... More

This restaurant is not only about a delicate and tasty meal. The whole experience is a journey through the senses and each dish will transport you to an eclectic version of Colombian food. My only complaint will be the dessert, I found it simple and not spectacular.

We liked our tasting menu a lot, are planning to return and recommend it for a special occasion due to the time requirement (2-3h). Pairings with foreign (french, spanish, chilean) wines optionally offered. Food (5*): We took the longer sampling menu (2-3h) with smaller wine pairing (4 wines). The most memorable tastes were: - Tomato soup with sweet corn pasta... More

The waiter presented us only with prix fixe menus ! Only when we told him that we had "limited" time, he gave us as an alternative some "a la carte" options. Therefore our lunch started on a bad note, and the food plus service did not change our mind . . . this restaurant blows hot air.

Enjoyed our experience at El Cielo , gastro dinners are always more about the experience then just about the food. The experience was very fun here the only reason they do not get a 5 star is that the timing between courses was a bit off on a couple of courses and the food while excellent a couple course we're...

Food was ok, but expensive. The larger experience prix fix menu was too fussy with the non-food dishes and wait staff seemed to be in training the night we were there. For a truly wonderful dining experience in Bogota, try Leo instead. Better, more thoughtfully prepared dishes, more relaxed, knowledgeable and attentive staff and cheaper.

This is a very unusual restaurnat. The menu is prix fixed, it is expensive, at least for Bogota standards, but still a bargain for Northamericans and Europeans. The menu is baded on a them of Colombian dishes and evolution, and each dish is amazingly tasty and perfectly cooked. The place is beautiful, feels more like a spa than a restaurant.... More
