    I've been to 3 other Michelin star restaurants and this one was by far the most underwhelming. Some courses were good but most were mediocre. They tried to put an artsy spin on it but the underlying food was something I could get anywhere. Specially the coffee was just plain bad considering they called it Colombia's best coffee proceeded to over extract a darker roast... I had geisha coffee that morning and it was way better at a local coffee shop. Overall experience was positive but not Michelin star or that price tag worthy in my opinion. The hospitality was excellent and were extremely attentive.

    Amazing experience. Very creative menu, service was outstanding and the ambience was calm and relaxing. I’ve been to many Michelin restaurants that are overly fussy and affected by their status - not this one. They got almost everything right although there was one dish (lamb) which was not to my wife’s lamb-loving taste (somewhat overpowering vinegar). Otherwise it was faultless.

    This was our 2nd visit and once again we were absolutely amazed by the experience from the moment we approached the door! The principle chef’s ability to merge Columbian culture, artistry, creative use of spices, and exquisitely timed course presentation is unlike anything we’ve ever experienced in dining. Our photos and description does little justice for the actual production. I believe El Cielo should be on everyone’s list of must-do dining.

Presentation of food same, it moves my Colombian deep feelings, place is cozy. So happy to be able to have this experience and extra proud of the people who shows the good face of our people and beautiful land. Love you Juan Manuel couldn’t give you the kiss I had reserve just for you but from the distance thank you. Just do something cheaper for people that can’t afford that prices like us.

    Honestly, this was the perfect Miami take on a Michelin star restaurant. ( not in a good way ) The service was so slow I was falling asleep in my seat. The food was subpar. Maybe one dish in the beginning,a tasting dish was pretty good. The cocktail pairings weren’t very good. They were very disgusting in taste. I would not come back here ever again in my life. And the whole washing your hands with chocolate is disgusting.

    Our recent visit to this esteemed establishment offered an exceptional foray into Colombian cuisine, leaving an indelible mark on our culinary journey. The curated selection of dishes not only surpassed our anticipations but also presented a nuanced divergence from our preconceived notions of traditional Colombian dining. This variance, rather than detracting, enriched our experience, providing a contemporary interpretation of classic flavors. The menu serves as an exquisite introduction to Colombian culinary traditions, ingeniously reimagined to ignite the imaginations of its patrons. Each dish, a testament to the chef’s mastery and reverence for Colombian gastronomy, was infused with an authentic passion, making palpable the rich cultural heritage imbued in every bite. The meticulous attention to detail and the harmonious blend of indigenous ingredients and modern techniques bespoke a deep-seated dedication to culinary excellence. Dining here is not merely about savoring exquisite flavors but embarking on a gastronomic odyssey that captures the essence of Colombia’s vibrant heart and soul. For aficionados of Colombian cuisine and those eager to explore the depths of this rich culinary landscape, this restaurant stands as a beacon of sophistication and culinary innovation.

    We expected the experience to be more outstanding. Meaning the food experience. The restaurant inside is lacking a nice cozy ambiance. Doesn’t have an impressive view nor a luxury feel. The service was good and the food was okay, not the best for a Michelin star. The food was coming way too fast so by the eight plate we were stuffed bc there was little break. The money we spent is not worth. Way too expensive

Le service soigné et chaleureux. Ambiance élégante et comfortable. Le seul hic: les accompagnements de vins- quantites trop petites pour permettre une vrai degustation avec les plats.

    One cocktail (the coconut) was extremely sweet. The tamal was not really good. But the worst thing is the chairs, they are so high and so uncomfortable. They are dangerous by being so high with out back rest and slippery leather. We all end up with back aches. The service was really nice but sometimes they confused cutlery order (shouldn't happen in a Michelin star)
