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.

We had the tasting menu. Several small dishes mostly very good. The presentation is polished and quite dramatic....rose petal pellets to clean your hands and pan de yuca tree.... It is fine for a special occasion. Probably too expensive and involved for a regular restaurant visit.

Absolutely phenomenal experience. Had the larger menu meal. Every course was a surprise and very appealing. The cocktails were also excellent. Do not miss this restaurant

What an over priced and obnoxious place. some things were interesting while you look at them but the flavours are lacking. the bill was out outrageous even in dolars. I went in with lots of ideas of what the restaurants offer was, ended up being something cold and with no personality. what a shame.
