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

I have had very good meat here before but on my last visit the piece I ordered was terrible. The very expensive cut (almost 50,000 pesos or 25 US$) was seriously hard and tasteless. The 'yuca frita' was not fried but boiled. Very annoying having to pay so much money and leaving unhappy. I pointed out the the waiter that... More

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.
