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

I can't recommend Mini-Mal enough to anyone who finds themselves in Bogotá. The food is delicious, creative, and reasonably priced. The wait staff is the friendliest I've...More

We went here for dinner on a local friend's recommendation. We didn't have a reservation, but they seated us right away on a busy Saturday night. Everything was delicious! Absolutely everything. Service was a bit slow, but friendly. Highly recommend.

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.
