Club Colombia looks more like a country club than one of the restaurants in Bogota, set in a beautiful brick house with ivy growing around the outside. Inside, there’s a few leather armchairs gathered around the fireplace, and two floors of dining room seating, most of which is usually full. It’s wise to order a few traditional Colombian dishes; the empanaditas (small turnover pastries stuffed with different fillings and served with accompanying sauces) are the best in town, and the shrimp stew has wonderful flavours. Huge bowls of colourful fresh fruit are displayed in the kitchen, ready for use in juices or other dishes, and are a sign of Club Colombia’s natural quality. Diners here are encouraged to relax and while away the hours, so order a few appetisers before your main course, and then sit back with a good brandy. You wont be in any hurry to leave.
