Colombia Calling - The English Voice in Colombia

Mesa Franca needs no introduction to people in Bogotá, but for those considering visiting the Colombia capital, this restaurant, founded by María Paula Amador, Tom Hydzik and Iván Cadena, has gone from strength to strength as one of the pioneers in new Colombian cuisine since its founding in 2016.

We get to sit down in the restaurant with María and hear about her restaurant story, the challenges, hopes and future plans.
