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.

Leo has an outstanding reputation so has to work to live up to it - I felt they pulled it off. The menu, with its focus on ingredients from conflict zones and different microclimates, is unusual, intriguing and innovative. Everything we ate was good - the desserts were the stand outs, but I appreciated being surprised. Staff was attentive, bilingual... More

A world class restaurant. Before visiting Bogota I had recommendations to visit Leo Cocina y Cava from friends in New York and London. The food is amazing, the service friendly and knowledgeable, and the ambience stylish. A great experience.

Modern surrounding & Good Service. Waiter was very attentive. Portions are small but interesting. The wine menu is limited. Cork feels $80,000 COP (Expensive)

I went with work for a celebration lunch. We had all heard about this place and decided to try it. My boss had already been a while ago and had good memories from that time. The service is great - very attentive and we truly felt welcome. The restaurant has a fancy French restaurant decor, which felt like a mismatch... More
