I went to the restaurant on Calle 42 and Carrera 33 with a business associate and ordered Lomito, 200gm, medium well, normal cut (they ask you whether you want it "butterfly cut"). It was tender, juicy and flavorful. This Mercagan restaurant chain has its own cattle ranch. Best Lomito in town for sure. Go for it. Reasonable prices and wonderful... More

I'm originally from Bucaramanga, but I now live in the Netherlands. Every time I go back to bukara I must eat there!! The meat is always juicy and tender, their burgers are also really delicious and of course the prices are very affordable. I recommend this place without a doubt!

We ate here a few time, lunch and dinner. Great value and really good steaks. They speak no English, but we managed. Service was fast and efficient. Wine is expensive, but it seems to be everywhere in Colombia.

We've been there thanks to our colleagues who invited us for a lunch. The meat quality was excellent and it was so big that I was almost able to eat it all (but eventually I did it). The atmosphere is nice and waiter kind.

I've been here about 5 times in different Colombian cities, Bucaramanga and Medellin to be exact. The meat is better than anything I've ever had here in the United States. Not sure why, but it is. Maybe it's fresher? The turn around time from harvest to plate seems to be much quicker there, and this is probably true in other... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant to us. We thanked and tipped him on our return! This is a very popular Parrilla (restaurants specializing in meats) in Bucaramanga, Colombia. It is situated not far from the Dann Carlton, and within easy, safe walking distance. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor dining; it overlooks one of the many... More
