Andres DC is basically like being in a supper club from the 20s that was invented and adorned by Pedro Almodovar and Salvador Dali. The five floors of Andres DC take you from hell to heaven, each table 0 named for a deceased person (and speculating on where they ended up.) A cabaret plays music, confetti rains down on you occasionally, and the decor is red, sparkly, and random. Could make for a gimmicky mess if the food wasn't ridiculously good. Ceviches and octupus salad are wonderful. Fresh limes come to the table for squeezing into your water or fresh strawberry juice. Little squares of coconut put chips and salsa to shame as the snacky little starter. And, the steak is a buttery, bacony, rich revelation in the pleasures of the flesh. Oh, and the menu is about 30 pages long, tempting you to return.Recommended for:

Without doubt one of Bogota's defining experiences, it may be expensive and difficult to get to but it's absolutely worth it.
First up: the food. Unrivalled in terms of quality and presentation, it’s arguably Colombia’s best restaurant and certainly the best meat I’ve tasted in the country. I recommend getting anything beefy. Well-cooked, tender and delicious.
Once the food is over, however, is when the real experience starts. Andres Carne de Res is a place full of color and chaos. The walls are adorned with incredible kitsch decorations, costumed performers wander around the club and while all this is going on the best selection of internation and local music is being played.
Ultimately the best thing about Andres Carne de Res is the atmosphere. Since it’s not easy to get to, people tend to be devoted to having a good time and enjoying the night without reservations. People come in groups, but it always ends up that the entire club seems to be socialising with each other.
To get to Andres Carne de Res you’ll need to either book a bus with a group or take a taxi (roughly $40-50,000) since it’s outside the city in a place called Chia. Entrance is $15,000, while a bottle of alcohol will set you back about $120,000. It’s certainly not the cheapest night in Bogota, but if you do decide to go, you’ll soon discover it’s one of the most fun. And not just in Bogota, but the world.

Andres was the place I was mostly looking forward to visiting while in Bogota. I really wanted to go to the original location, but opted not to since it was far away and and I was traveling alone. I ended up going to the restaurant outlet in the city on a Sunday and it did not live up to the hype. I guess I was there a little too early in the evening to witness all the excitement of the entertainment I read about, but what i saw was average at best. The food was a little disappointing- my steak had a little too much fat on it although it had a good peppery flavor. The one thing i did appreciate it is that i left a comment card with how I felt about the food and about a week later I received an email about my feedback. I am sure it would be better during a busier time, but it just didnt do it for me.
