Huge portions, the down side is they are so good you have to eat them all. Maybe is a tradition but in Santander the size of the meals is very important, so once you are served and scared by the size of the dish, but you dig into it , then, you realize that it is a challenge you have... More

Really nice place and very good service. For me the best restaurant in Bucaramanga. We had the "mazorca" with cheese as a starter and lomo fino with avocado salad as the main dish. The meal was just delicius! And the wine was also one of the best we had in this city. The meat done exactly as we wanted -... More

They respect the natural flavour of meat, and they sell first quality products. There are three locations the best one is the one on San Pio Park.

I have eaten many steaks in Colombia, this is by far the best. The service, ambiance is all okay. You don't go to Mercagan for that. You go there to eat one of the best steaks you will ever eat. Dont try it at a food court. Go to one of the restaurnants and order a lomo fino and enjoy

let´s face it, if you are in Bucaramanga is most likely for work-related issues. The city doesn´t have much to offer, granted with the exception of the nearby amazing Chicamocha National Park. So Mercagan will appear as a gem, a colombian experience. They serve exquisite meat in various sorts and the typical side-dishes are amazing, particularly the fried Yuca. A... More

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!
