We didn't eat, as we had alternate plans (and had heard the food here wasn't the main draw), but it was the perfect spot to grab a glass of wine before dinner! Loved all the small rooms—definitely feels as though you're one of only a few parties here, which lends an intimate feel. Not a huge selection of wines, but... More

One of my favorite things during my visit. It was a fantastic multi-level restaurant with live music, countless private areas/coves/rooms, and delicious food. The beef dishes were all great.

You may have some difficulty finding this restaurant. It's in the alley directly behind the small square (opposite the little church). The interior is very attractive, it looks like you're seated inside rooms around a small courtyard. We ate a fish dish which was good but nothing special. The live music was good but quite loud, making it hard to... More

Visiting this cute multi-level restaurant is like going on a treasure hunt in someone’s home and uncovering a wealth of hidden nooks, hideaways and balconies for drinking and dining—all of them warm and inviting. The ambience is really quite special. We had the ceviche (with corvina, or sea bass), caprese salad, emapanaditas, and cazuela de mariscos (note that this seafood... More

We came here because of a recommendation and were impressed by the location, restaurant ambience staff. However the food was absolutely rubbish. I ordered the pork chop with mash and a huge chunk of pork came soaked in a sweet mustard sauce. The pork was cold on the inside and the mash potato was clearly powdered mash. If you're paying...

Siting on the roof deck next to the fireplace. Adequate service, nice music, good food... Authentic place suggested by the hotel night receptionist. All you need to make your night out despite of the noisy neighborhood.

This restaurant is situated near the birthplace of Bogotá, El Chorro. If you are tired of sitting in the sun, drinking beers and enjoying the student-like atmosphere...this is the place to get some really good food. I was here with two friends and we all had an amazing steak. The interior of the restaurant is nice and peaceful and if... More

We enjoyed a very fine meal with great Lulo cocktails into this charming busy place with musicians. The food was savoury perfectly seasoned and the side dishes as well.

The Gato Gris comes from a story that long ago, a beautiful woman used to sit on the balcony of her house (which is now the restaurant), petting a gray cat on her lap. A passing paramour fell in love with her so her husband moved them away, and people never heard from them again. Only the gray cat remained, wandering around the roof of the house. music live all day 8 pm atmosphere is bohemian.
