We liked our tasting menu a lot, are planning to return and recommend it for a special occasion due to the time requirement (2-3h). Pairings with foreign (french, spanish, chilean) wines optionally offered. Food (5*): We took the longer sampling menu (2-3h) with smaller wine pairing (4 wines). The most memorable tastes were: - Tomato soup with sweet corn pasta... More

The waiter presented us only with prix fixe menus ! Only when we told him that we had "limited" time, he gave us as an alternative some "a la carte" options. Therefore our lunch started on a bad note, and the food plus service did not change our mind . . . this restaurant blows hot air.

If you want to experience trough all your senses the Colombian food, this is the place. You will find a romantic and familiar environment. Also, a unice taste with excellent wines.

Enjoyed our experience at El Cielo , gastro dinners are always more about the experience then just about the food. The experience was very fun here the only reason they do not get a 5 star is that the timing between courses was a bit off on a couple of courses and the food while excellent a couple course we're...

Food was ok, but expensive. The larger experience prix fix menu was too fussy with the non-food dishes and wait staff seemed to be in training the night we were there. For a truly wonderful dining experience in Bogota, try Leo instead. Better, more thoughtfully prepared dishes, more relaxed, knowledgeable and attentive staff and cheaper.

This is a very unusual restaurnat. The menu is prix fixed, it is expensive, at least for Bogota standards, but still a bargain for Northamericans and Europeans. The menu is baded on a them of Colombian dishes and evolution, and each dish is amazingly tasty and perfectly cooked. The place is beautiful, feels more like a spa than a restaurant.... More

This is a tasting menu only restaurant, and our service took approx 3 hours. If you have any dietary requirements essential to book in advance. The space has a green wall which looks great and is lit very moodily with big candles. The food was good, especially the desserts and a clarified smoked tomato soup was exquisite. However the rigmarole... More

The idea behind this is to get a multi sensory experience. From the hand washing, to the fragrance to the wonderful tastes (and even hearing the rain fall on the roof), Elcielo was wonderful. We loved the experience and the food was delicious and inspired. We highly recommend it.
