Place to eat
“Crepes and Waffles is an incredible local chain. I've used this location as an example for this list, but you can find them all over Bogota and they're all INCREDIBLE. The food is great, it’s pretty cheap, and they only hire single mothers for waitresses, so they can make a decent living and support their families. At least once, you must to eat at one of these because the food is so good. Their ice cream for desert is incredible! It must have drugs in it because it’s so addictive! ”

“La Plaza de Andres and Andres DC are two places you have to see them to believe ithem! Located in the El Retiro Shopping Center, it's the urban version of the original Andres Carne De Res, which is in the far northern suburb of Chia, requiring a sometimes lengthy trip, making it a destination.”

Steakhouse

“In 2009 Andres Carne de Res brought their famous, fun dinning concept to the center of bogota for even more people to enjoy. The urban paradise still does what they do best: combining a restaurant, bar and lively dance floor that make for an unforgettable night - night after night. Although sorrow died by a slightly less rustic atmosphere compared to the countryside of chia, Andres DC still runs on plenty of heartfelt warmth. Come join the thousands of souls that come to this one-of-a-kind party venue to share, dance and shine.”
