Colombia Restaurants: 40 reviews and 37 photos
While South America might not be noted as a top culinary continent, some countries certainly stand out above others and Colombia is easily one of them. As with accommodation, it might not be the cheapest of all South American countries but overall the quality and range of choices are better too. That said, it was a slight disappointment to us as we had eaten in a particularly good Colombian restaurant while in Ecuador two years prior to setting foot in the cuisine's namesake country so we had very high expectations. Once our initial letdown passed, we found some excellent dishes that we already miss.
Favorite Dish: As with all things Colombian, prices vary greatly. You could pay much for a meal here as you would in North America or Europe if that is what you are looking for. We were not so I cannot report on whether those meals are of the same standard. We did do a few splurgey meals in the $15 range and must say they were excellent and worth doing but we only did this when we were pretty sure the prices were warranted from prior research. These meals were about three times what we normally paid so you can imagine they were quite good. So, expect to pay around $5 for a meal with breakfasts often being half that. These are for restaurant meals and food from vendors is even cheaper and quite often good stuff too. Small snacks are in the 50 cents to $1 range and as a rule hygienically more than safe to consume.
Below is a sampling of our favorite meals in Colombia.
