The food - I had the cerviche for appetizer , which was not that great - a few chunks of the fish did not taste too fresh ...

Buy my main course was amazing - the casuela (? Spelling ). It was a seafood soup with lots of chunks of fish , shrimp , squid , etc. the soup was amazingly tasty - it tasted like a rich shrimp or lobster bisque , and all the chunks of seafood in the soup was fresh and delicious . I highly recommend this dish !

Service - very good , though a little slow.

Setting - very comfortable, relatively quiet .

Food well prepared and spiced at its point, fair portions the place does not stand out for its atmosphere, they believe that serving in ALUMINUM pots gives them a touch, but what it gives is sadness due to what we all know about this food stuff, Hopefully improve your recipes and match the Gourmet technology
The service is impeccable.

The restaurant has a nice ambience and a modern decoration. Service and attention from personnel is excellent. Since we arrived, they greeted us with a smile. Their kindness is a special characteristic from Colombians. The main area of the restaurant has around 15 tables and there is a bar area with big windows that have a nice view of the street at the front. I ordered a salmon pave with a tahini sauce over a bed of barley and peas, which was amazing! Every ingredient perfectly spiced. I also tried the “ajiaco” a Colombian typical dish that consists of a soup with potatoes, chicken, cob, avocado, cream of milk, capers and rice. I went for a lunch and spotted the Colombian soccer player Juan Cuadrado, so it must be a restaurant that celebrities like to visit.

Last Sunday I made a reservation for brunch at La Ventana. I was expecting a high quality brunch. But my expectations were highly exceeded. First I have to highlight the great service and attention of Juan Carlos. Who was always attentive and helpful. Besides, even though he left for few minutes, he left us in hands of Juliana, who also was really nice and kind. In the other hand, food was delicious, well presented and organized. The mimosa was great!!! I think the best one I have ever tried in a brunch. The atmosphere was also great with live music, perfect to share a morning/afternoon with family. Overall an excellent brunch! Many thanks to all the staff for the good moment we had.
