Restaurants in the Parque offer a variety of international cuisine and typical Colombian dishes. After dusk, the party begins with overflowing crowds of after-work singles and the sounds of Colombian music. This is a place you don't want to miss!
How to Get There: Call or hail a taxi and tell the driver "Parque LLeras (pronounced Parque Jeras). If your staying at a hotel or apartment in the Poblado area (which we recommend) it will be a short ride that will cost the minimum taxi fare of 3,500 pesos. You'll know the minute you arrive in Parque LLeras because of its bright lights and party atmosphere. Have the taxi drop you off in the middle of the Parque and walk around until you find a restaurant that you like.

Where to Eat & Drink (recommended favorites):
Basilica...........My favorite restaurant in the Parque is "Basilica. With an international menu, easy going atmoshere, and great service. Dinner for two with wine is about 60,000 pesos ($28.00). Its also located in one of the best locations for people watching and making new friends (map location).
La Triada............Is a very popular open-air restaurant with a stylish lounge, orange neon bar and low-slung couches. Their menu has a great selection of appetizers, beef, chicken, fish, and pasta entrees. Try the tortilla Soup its delicious. Get there early for dinner because this is a local hangout for Colombians who make dinning and drinking an all night affair (map location).
Divino Cielo........This is one of those great Restaurants/Bars that people like to sit back and relax with a cool drink or two. Divino is strategically located on the corner of Parque Lleras and the view of the park and people watching is excellent. The service is fast and friendly with waiters that speak a little English. This is one place you don't want to miss on a Friday or Saturday night (map location).
