Central Cevicheria

Seafood in Bogotá

This large, high-concept cevicheria is insanely popular with the upscale Bogotá set. Choose your fish (octopus, shrimp, mixed seafood etc), then add one of a dozen sauces split into spicy and nonspicy categories, of which there are more than 10 inventive offerings. Reservations recommended.

A favorite sauce is the kick-laced picoso, swimming in two peppers, cilantro and fresh corn. But it doesn't stop there: there are numerous tiraditos (long-cut ceviches without onions), tartares, fresh seafood main dishes and good Latin cocktails (COP$22,800). It's Colombian coastal cuisine on overdrive. Save room for the deliciously dense coconut flan.
