Peru is the culinary center of Latin America and Rafael provides a tasting.

It is a distinguished Peruvian restaurant located in one of the most popular and busy sectors of Bogotá. Its concept focuses on fusing a tropical vision with a modern environment, and for owner-chef Rafael Osterling, this is reflected in his dishes. The important thing is to preserve the tradition hand in hand with the experimentation typical of Peruvian cuisine. The atmosphere is relaxed, with some of the most notorious works of art commemorated in the bar, while the dining room is a bit more formal.

As a good Peruvian restaurant, its essence is the special and unique preparation of the fish to add a pinch of vibrant flavor to its dishes: spicy, sweet, or sweet and sour. Clearly, you will also find a variety of dishes: pasta, lean cuts of red and white meat, including dishes for those demanding vegetarians. In entrees, its price ranges between 30,000 and 50,000 Colombian pesos, although you can find dishes for 70,000 and 80,000 pesos. Approximately the average price of everything is 90 thousand pesos

Once again we enter the chef Sasson area and the famous T zone, another of the busiest culinary and shopping spots in Bogotá. So crowded that it is normal to distinguish one politician or businessman from another. Balzac is clothed with more charm at night since he can enjoy his serenity.

It is a kitchen that experiments, but that preserves its sobriety. He builds his dishes with the finest and most exquisite haute cuisine foods such as mussels, mushrooms and asparagus, but he risks experimenting in his presentation and preparation. Balzac experiments above all with his appetizers, so the least thing you can miss at this restaurant is to try a special design of appetizers. Its average price fluctuates between 80,000 and 90,000 Colombian pesos.
