Best steaks

One of the best meat you can find in Cali. My husband is Texan and as soon as we leave the airport , he says ..let's go to Leños. We both love it. I didn't give it an excellent , because I personally don't like the place itself. Too crowdy for me. We prefer to go to the one located... read more

We went to this restaurant a couple of times. Service was always good. You don't have to wait too long for your food to be served, which is a huge plus. Great for meat lovers.

I have lived in Cali for 15 years and have yet to find an equal for general steak house as Lenos & Carbon. The portions are over-sized and the prices are mid line in comparison for Colombia but in comparison to the US the prices are unbelievable. While it is not a traditional style order at the table restaurant the... More

We have been to a couple locations of Lenos y Carbon. We have NEVER had a bad meal. Their steaks rival most steaks we have ordered here in the States. I do with their Salad Bar offered either unlimited or at least 2 passes. It's pretty pricey for the small bowl they give you & only one time. Definately not... More

all of their selection on the menu are worth-while - the beef is guaranteed and their portions are quite large. i love their black pudding, and my favorite cut is the sirloin or the baby beef - besides, they serve pretty good spuds and a decent salad.

A little on the pricey side... but the meat is REALLY good... the Chimichura sauce is pretty good but i would have liked a little more. This is sort of your fast food of decent meals

You can get here a good steak with their salad, rice and potatoes at a very modest price $16, You have to try their "Granizado de Mandarina" it is delicious!!!!!, it is an outdoor mall type restaurant yet no table service except they bring your order to the table. But for $16 what else can you ask for! totally recommend.

For less than 15USD you get a good steak, potato, salad and rice. As a restaurant it is ok. The fact that it is in a foodcourt, makes it better than average. I recommend Churasco, or Punta de Anca. If you are a fan of medium rare as I am, you must ask that they put the steak on a... More
