If I am not wrong, this restaurant has been opened almost two decades ago and it still serves the best oysters and the fries are crispy, thin, not greay (hhhmmmmm...). The menu ppfers a good variaty of options and even the bread served is good, like fresh homemade bread.

This is an excellent restaurant with a french bistro´s flavor in the Zona Rosa of Bogota. Service is very good, aswell as the food. Is pricy, but the quality all along of the place makes you pay with no regret.

Upscale French restaurant in the upscale Zona T. It's on the expensive side with an upscale crowd that expects quality for their meals. Excellent service and modern decor makes this a great option if you feel like French in Bogota.

Highly recommended for groups and client meetings. The menu offers a lot of options. My preferred ones are the hot brie salad, the house pate, the pepper steak, and the duck. The wine selection is very good and reasonably priced (you can find very good value for money offers). In terms of seating location, try to get a table close... More

Super delicious French restaurant. The service is not the kindest but is quick. It is a bit expensive so have your wallet prepared. I had a ceviche and for dessert a creme brûlée... Both are easily the beat i have had. Super recommended!

Balzac is the type of restaurant where food and service are always perfect! The fish is fresh and amazing, great salads, delicious mushrooms with cheese fondue and excellent selection of wines. Highly recommended

Balzac is a restaurant that doesn't disappoint. My family has eaten there many times. One of my favorite appetizers is pate topped with carmelized onions, served with toasted, seasoned bread. Another favorite is a main dish, halibut steamed with vegetables a bag. A side order of creamed spinach completes this mouth-watering experience. Yesterday my family shared two desserts, neither of... More
