We were staying in Bogota a single night and I had heard about this restaurant before so we had to pay it a visit. We ordered the tasting menu (the last evening it would the 2016 version would ever be served) along with the matched wines/drinks. Exquisite - the novelty of the flavours and ingredients, the exemplary plate design, some... More

We stayed 10 days in Bogota and tested over 10 "high ranked" restaurants. "Leo" came on top of our list. The décor, cleanness, service and food surpassed all the other restaurants we tested. She deserves to be on the top 50 in the Latin America San Pellegrino list. We would say that her forthcoming 2017 ranking should be better that... More

We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was just great. The pairing was excellent. The dishes very unique and perfectly presented! Friendly staff.

We went here based on the 2016 San Pellegrino review (#16 in South America). We were absolutely delighted by the food, wine pairings and service. Our waiter apologized for his English, but he explained each dish clearly and in good detail. The local ingredients and techniques made for vibrantly flavorful food. The standouts were the ahi tuna tartare with ants,... More

We went to Leo's based on word of mouth and looking for a counterpoint to the two weeks of typical Colombian food that we had had on trek in the Andes. We were entirely successful - this is a serious restaurant that demands your full attention to the food. Not only because it is cleverly plated and beautiful to look... More

On the food, interesting menu that brings a lot of Colombian flavours to the plate, however the tenderloin was raw (and they insisted that was "medium"), and the octopus was nothing that justifies the price. However the worst was the service, which was incredibly slow (50 minute wait to get the main courses - having stated that they should not... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Colombia. I been in a considerable number of restaurants in Bogota, and to my criteria this is one of the bests. I had a great experience the only thing that I recommend is to train better the waiters because they served me a caverne in a sauvignon blanc glass. The food is... More

I went to this place for a business dinner. Happy that i didnt have to pay it as the place is expensive! The menu is creative and you can really get some special and delicious dishes here! No doubt that the quality of the food matches their reputation. However, I feel that the reputation and good feedback have had its... More

One of the best 100 restaurants in the world. Colombian Nuvou cousine. I had excellent Mote de queso (soup, REALLY GOOD) and Posts Negra which is meat in a style from the northern coast of Colombia. Really good and creative. My gourmet Colombian Friends Sweeney this place.
