local food, very good meet, friendly atmosphere

after a bad experience in a more trendy meet restaurant, i was looking for an honest local restaurant with good meat. i end up at Bonga del Sinu and had a very good surprise. very friendly staff, reliable, not pushy to increase your order. good wine, and the meat was very good and perfectly cooked

We had a meat platter that was very good. I agree with many people that the service was slow but, it was cooked to order so I give them some slack. Great location, real close to the Morrison Hotel, a gem of a hotel. Back to the food, you will enjoy your meal, but be patient and enjoy the surroundings.

Dear reader, I always tried to write about my good experiences with some restaurants located in Bogota but, I consider necessary to talk about those really bad restaurants where you have to avoid due to the bad food or the really expensive price or the terrible service. Unfortunately, La Bonga del Sinu restaurant is a bad place to eat. Let... More

We love to come this place before fly back to USA. It is a typical meat, might not be as quality as Abe Louis but great for the money.

Although the staff was really cortious and professional, they length of waiting time for your meal is inexcusable. It took close to an hour to get served. The food was below average and it seems they use higher amounts of MSG than other restaurants. My date and I got sick from the food right after. WIll never come back and... More

My friends and I were very disappointed with this restaurant. While the meat was okay, although not anything special, the service was completely abysmal. We were the only diners, but the waiters seemed to have better things to do than serve us, and trying to just order some wine was quite the ordeal as it turned out that, despite initially... More

I went with a collegue to this place hoping to find somewhere for him to eat local food. I found the surprise that there were only 2 or 3 items in the menu that were colombian. The reat tou can find in any restaurant. I was, however, impressed by the service: kind and QUICK! I suggest you order the typical... More

The food is pretty good and the products they offer have different taste from the other restaurants'. That is because they base the flavors in typical colombian food from the northern coast. I totally recommend to try 'tajadas con suero' for 5900COP both. And if you are a foreigner I also recommend to try any meal with 'queso costeño'.

Su comida es exquisita, su sabor es tipico costeño, sus platos son abundantes. Tienen como centro de mesa tajadas de platano verde con suero costeño, lo cual me parecio espectacular. Aunque es un poco costoso, me parece que vale la pena, sus jugos son caros, pero sabrosos, yo consumo la limonada de coco, pero un jugo tipico y muy sabroso... More
