El Bandido, a sort of hidden gem in Bogotá, will allow you to enjoy great premium food, top of the shelf cocktails and listen to live music.

In case you'd like to sample some premium drinks after your meal, this restaurant also features a "hidden" small bar at the end of the place (El Enano). Try not to miss it. Despite its very small size, El Enano provides a great place to enjoy a premium drink.

Great, vibrant atmosphere. Live music. Appealing dishes and fine dining. The crowd is mostly comprised of young adults. Reservations recommended (Even on weekdays)

El Bandido is my favorite place in Bogotá when I want to go to somewhere more than just a restaurant. There is always either a DJ or live music, this time it was only a DJ although I prefer live music, but it was very good anyway.

I will return to El Bandido every time I go to Bogota!!!

The host should really be fired. I can’t judge the food since when we arrived at 6.50 pm we were told there was no table available while the place was completely empty! I asked what time people had made reservations for and he said 8.30. So I said that’s wonderful we will be done by then but he just refused and was so nasty. When I asked how long we would wait for two he said he didn’t know. I honestly do not recommend this place. Terrible image of the usually friendly Colombians!

This restaurant was perfect for our small group. The atmosphere is lively and the food was delicious. The live band made for a great atmosphere and the service was excellent. I would definitely return! I would recommend making a reservation as the seating is limited and groups seemed to stay for quite a long time to watch the music.
