    Andres Carne de Res is NOT all that!

    by krstknight Written Jul 8, 2009

    While surfing the web for restaurants to enjoy during my visit to Bogota, one that came up on several websites was Andres Carne de Res. When I asked my husband, who grew up in Bogota, and many of his friends who live in Bogota, the response was all the same...a laugh! If you want to spend WAY too much money and dine with other tourists and Bogotano snobs, than head over to Andres Carne. If you opt to "live like the locals" (my travel motto) than avoid the overpriced tourist trap!
