Excellent meat!

I loved the meat. Excellent flavor and texture. Side orders were nice too. Great service. Will go back. Only drawback is the name. I cant believe such a great treat is called that way!

This restaurant has a very nice backyard and it is well decorated. The menu offers almost all typical Colombian meat options and the food is always fresh and well prepared. I think this is the perfect place to try the goat grilled in the Colombian way and the special sun dried meats - good wine options too

I liked a lot the "Carne Oriada", a specialty of the region, which is a sun dried cut with a sweet treatment. yummy... ;)

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
