The service at this restaurant is good, but the food and cocktails here aren't worth the price. The chicken dish I had was dry and crusty, as if it was sitting out for half a day. If you're going to be paying these inflated prices,...More

Good service, and one of the better steaks I had in bogota. Loved the way the seating was as in many of the restaurants in old buildings in this part of central Bogota.

This Candelarian house has so many floors and individual niches that you nearly forget about the reason you came here while exploring the place. The staff is friendly and advises you correctly, the menu is small but fine and the meals excellent. The Grey Cat...More

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.
