We had the 9 course tasting menu and it was absolutely fantastic. I have eaten at several Michelin star restaurants across the world and this was up there with the best and without any of the pretentiousness one can often get in some. The service was excellent and it was lovely for one of the chefs to come out and explain one of the dishes to us. I was also pleasantly surprised with the waiters and chef being able to explain the dishes in English as throughout our 3 weeks in Colombia we found this to be rare (not a criticism as we did not expect them to speak English but it was nice to have the dishes explained to us here). I would recommend this restaurant to all.
