We had a great dinner here tonight with a very good bottle of wine.. As a starter we had the ceviche, the Caribbean and the Peruvian. Both were delicious! Main dishes were good (lamb and chicken) dessert was also good. Very nice atmosphere with live (Hispanic) music. And the personnel is also really nice and helpful. We had a wonderful... More

We went there by chance and it was a lucky strike. The place is very nice and food and service were impeccable. It was the best meal we have had in Colombia so far. I had fish and my friend meat and both the options were well presented and tasty. Prices are just a bit higher than in other restaurants... More

Went there on 3 consecutive night (feeling rather guilty that we should be ex0loring some new places!) Each night we each had different dishes & every one was really good, Set in an old church, the atmosphere was great - nice lighting and live music on acoustic guitar which was pleasant yet unobtrusive. Seemed to be a place where well-heeled... More

We had dinner here after a day of walking around Candelaria and going to Monserrate. We had a delicious mushroom in parmesan sauce appetizer, then order the La Bruja medallions of beef and another steak served on eggplant. Both steaks were very good, cooked perfectly and served with mashed potatoes and salad. The eggplant was a bit under cooked for... More

Came to la bruja for dinner. Really enjoyed the live music played by a singer with a guitar who also dedicated songs by request. The tomate soup and corn soup were great! For the main course we ate steak wich was perfectly cooked and ordered a nice chillien wine. The staffwas really good and was a good time!

We both enjoyed our meals and service. One had the lomo steak in red wine sauce. I had chicken curry. Both were very good. Dinner, with a good bottle of Argenntinian wine and one dessert, with tip was about $50 usd. The atmosphere was also quite elegant, but the feeling not stuffy at all. You can eat for much less...

A romantic little nook with great food and exceptional service. Everything from the bruscetta forward was fresh, well seasoned and nicely presented. The pasta was freshly made and the steak was a nice cut, perfectly cooked and quite tender. The service was professional. Prices: steak 28,000, pasta 20000 and a really nice Martini for 13000(?).
