Was here with some colleagues a few weeks ago. The neighborhood isn't the prettiest as some of the reviewers have already highlighted but waiting inside is a little oasis from a different age. All the food is fresh and fantastic and the wine list is very good. I had the garlic shrimp (see pic) and I'm still salivating...so delicious!

One of my favorite places for a Business Lunch, good Fish and a very good Cazuela de Camarones. Reserve miloja for dessert before you asked the main dish or you can't have one of the best milojas in Bogota. Always make a reservation!!

The Darius restaurant is one of my favorites in Bogota. You get to select your fish that they deep fry. The fish tasted awesome; light in taste. The service was outstanding. I had the opportunity to meet the owner and he was very obliging and spoke great English.

Hidden in the industrial area of the city, this little gem is a delight. Started the meal with yuca and tostones, followed by an incredible seafood soup topped with cheese. The main course was a gently fried yellowtail that I selected and finished with a delicious flaky pastry similar to a Napoleon, but so much better!!! Everything here was prepared... More

The size of the dishes is amazing!. You have to go there with a lot of hungry!. Very traditional place to go in week days for business lunch. The "Pargo Rojo" (Red Snapper) is the best.

It's one of the best places to get fresh sea food in bogota, but watch out, it's expensive. Everything from the menu is really good, I would recommend the fried fish. The one thing I ease my very happy with was the wine menu, too few options.

Great food in a small place. The cazuela is absolutely awesome! The atmosphere looks family business and I just felt warmly treated by the waiters.

Been there a few times and just had lunch there again today, best "Pargo frito" I ever had and the "patacones" are to die for. Totally worth it.

Darius has more than 30 years of tradition, just by saying that you must admit that is hard to stay in this business without doing a good job. From the entries with fried manioc and "Patacones" (fried banana in a coin shape) you can see that the main dish and desert will have a hard work to keep the same... More

If you want to eat a good fish or cazuela, like in the caribbean, you must go to Darius, not far from the downtown, it is just delicious and the dessert (Milhoja) better reserved when you got there otherwise you will miss it.
