We went here for lunch while I was in Bucaramanga for business, very classic Colombian decoration, attentive service and delicious steaks with typical Colombian sides, I enjoyed very much the experience and will sure be back when I next visit this city.

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!

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
