This legendary steakhouse blows everyone away – even repeat visitors – for its all-out-fun atmosphere. The 75-page menu of classics like arepas and ceviches, and pages of succulent steaks (some portioned to serve as many as seven people!) is totally overwhelming (al trapo, or chargrilled beef tenderloin, is recommended if you need some help!).

Food-wise, it has really ramped up the quality of late (perhaps shockingly to some, it crashed into the coveted San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants list at 49 in 2017) but it's the surreal decor and designed gimmicks that truly fascinate. For most, it’s more than a meal – but a leave-the-watch-at-home expanse of late-night rumba that will leave you mesmerized, drunk and wondering, "What the hell happened last night?" Staff will get you on the floor if you resist joining in. The catch is that it’s out of town – in Chía, 23km north towards Zipaquirá. An Uber runs between COP$27,000 to COP$48,000 – don't use their highly overpriced taxi service!
