A Hedonist’s guide to…

Bogota

Grazia
Grazia offers a menu of traditional European dishes with a Colombian bent in its restaurant, as well as selling chocolates and patisserie from its store.
La Fama
La Fama is Bogotá’s first sustainable barbeque restaurant, offering delicious grilled dishes in a rough-luxe setting in the Nueva Granada area.
Restaurante Casa Santa Clara
From its perch on Monserrate, Restaurante Casa Santa Clara has sweeping views out over the verdant mountainside and serves delicious Colombian cuisine.
Bruto
A chic Spanish restaurant, Bruto is one of the brightest spots in Bogota's current culinary firmament, offering delicious food and live music.
Balzac
Balzac's brick walls and wooden beams provide a dimly-lit, atmospheric setting for French cuisine right in the centre of Zona T.
Donostia
Tucked away in the newly-fashionable (and forever beautiful) La Macarena, Donostia adds unexpected spices to traditional dishes for Colombian cuisine with a twist.
Abasto
Abasto looks like one of Jamie Oliver's cookbooks come to life. In a good way.
Kong
Central Cevicheria
Start an evening out in Zona T at Central Cevicheria, where sumptuous seafood and fresh fish are very much the order of the day.
Luna
Stop by Luna for a Sunday brunch and watch all the Zona T-revellers as they try to hide their hangovers behind oversized sunglasses.
H. Sasson
At the very centre of Zona T, H.Sasson Wok & Satay Bar is sweepingly large, and always full.
Rafael
Headed up by one of the best chefs in South America, and frequented by Bogota's most famous faces, Rafael is a must-eat.
Centrico
Centrico is a great restaurant/bar with amazing panoramic views of Bogota...
Casa de la Botica
If you aren't fussed by service, Hotel Casa de la Botica will give you a true taste of Colombian culture in lovely surroundings.
Pajares Salinas
Pajares Salinas has been a Bogotá institution since it first opened in 1958.
Club Colombia
Club Colombia serves exclusively Colombian food, prepared to an extremely high standard and with more than enough options to surprise even the most seasoned diner.
14 Inkas
A reservation at 14 Inkas should be on every hedonist's hit list - if not for the excellent Peruvian cuisine, then for the potent pisco.
Osaki
Osaki is a casual Asian restaurant with simple décor and excellent food.
La Biferia
Beef is big business at La Biferia, where carnivores are well catered to with steaks galore.
Leo Cocina y Cava
Leo Cocina y Cava is good - very good, even - but if you expect to dine at one of the best restaurants in the world (it has been included in such lists) you may be slightly disappointed.
Matiz
Matiz's dove blue and grey plush dining room is home to a sophisticated power scene.
El Comedor
El Comedor is an extremely fashionable hotel restaurant that attracts hungry diners from all over the city, as well as high-profile hotel guests.
La Cigale
Di Lucca
Inspiring Italian fare awaits at Di Lucca, which has an excellent reputation and a fit-to-bursting reservations book.
Nazca
A see-and-be-seen kinda place, Nazca proves that style and substance can go hand-in-hand with a crowd of beautiful people and a menu of perfect Peruvian fare.
SUNA
The discovery that healthy food can actually have taste has drawn models and actresses to SUNA in their droves, so be prepared for a sighting.
La Brasserie
The red leather booths of Brasserie are always filled with impeccably-dressed diners keen to sample some of Bogotá's best French cuisine, and glimpse their own reflection in the mirror-lined walls.
Tabula
Tabula has a very natural feel, with plants scattered along the floor and bamboo walls, and the casual philosophy is matched by exceptional cuisine.
Astrid y Gaston
A stately manor is the appropriate home for Astrid y Gaston: the king of Peruvian cuisine.
El Local
Contemporary Colombian fare is very much the order of the day at El Local, where fashionable types flock in their designer-clad droves.
Habana
As the name suggests, La Habana is a Cuban restaurant. But this doesn't just apply to the food-the main draw is a live band that plays Cuban every night.

Fantastic French fare abounds at Criterion, the reigning queen of Bogota's gourmet district.
Niko Café
Niko Café is a Bogotá classic that serves excellent food in an elegant setting with no pretensions or gimmicks.
