We were really hungry for meat and this restaurant advertised Angus Beef. Nice interior, good service---no English. I ordered the 300g Angus beef steak (U.S. about $23.00) ---it was a real disappointment. Thin, full of gristle---way too much fat that should have been trimmed. The part that was edible was about 100g. BF ordered the 3 pepper beef medallions. They... More

You can smell the food while you are walking towards the restaurant. Must try arroz con coco. They prepare meat al leño (wood) and the flavor is awesome. I have been here for lunch and dinner. It can get a little busy for lunch but no delay in service.

It is a spot where you can eat a Colombia north coast traditional beef, prepared with traditional coast cousin and the best selected fresh ingredients. The place is nice, the music is excellent and the staff super efficient. In one word simply enchanting!

My wife and I were recently in Bogota on business. We stayed near the Parque 93 dining district in Chino, so we invited a friend to join us for dinner at Restaurante La Bonga del Sinu. As it turns out, this restaurant was an outstanding choice. The restaurant is located near Parque 93, and is a cozy, comfortable establishment. The... More

I love this place and try to visit as often as I can. It's basically the best place to eat meat I know.

Very attentive waiters and good food. A bit on the expensive side, but affordable nontheless. One of the steaks was really salty and they changed within minutes of telling the waiter, no questions asked. I'll go back for sure.

Relatives of mine took me to La Bonga for lunch/almuerzo this past week. It was a very good experience overall. The atmosphere is fun and friendly. The servers all wear the traditional Colombian " Vueltiao" hat and are quite attentive. I ordered the 16 ounce Bife de Chorizo medium rare (un quarto in Spanish) and it was cooked to order.... More
