Food and restaurants in Bogota

Top restaurants

Café
“La Puerta Falsa is a Bogotá institution and perhaps the oldest restaurant and snack bar in the city. It isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience for anyone looking for authentic and traditional Colombian fare.You can’t miss out on their hot chocolate or agua de panela. Even though they serve small plates, we suggest going with an empty stomach and trying a little bit of everything they have to offer. Sun: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Mon: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Tue: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Wed: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Thu: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Fri: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Sat: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm”

“La Plaza de Andres and Andres DC are two places you have to see them to believe ithem! Located in the El Retiro Shopping Center, it's the urban version of the original Andres Carne De Res, which is in the far northern suburb of Chia, requiring a sometimes lengthy trip, making it a destination.”

Coffee Shop
“This is a hidden gem. Find it, head to the (rather rickety) roof terrace, grab a drink and soak up the views. From here you can see the entire centre of Bogotá and the church of Monserrate.”
