Best meal I have had in Colombia, easily

Poblado is full of bars and restaurants. Half are for tourists, mainly backpackers and gap year students, and the other half are classy wine bars and steak houses. I had lunch at Mondongo and loved it. Great service, perfectly cooked fish, and good value. The whole area is good to walk around... read more

Poblado is full of bars and restaurants. Half are for tourists, mainly backpackers and gap year students, and the other half are classy wine bars and steak houses. I had lunch at Mondongo and loved it. Great service, perfectly cooked fish, and good value. The whole area is good to walk around, especially at night when the bars fill up.

A good place to try regional dishes. The decor leaves a lot to be desired but the service is good and the beer cold and cheap. Good views to the action on the street.

Visited Mondongos as part of a group during my first night in Colombia. The food was very tasty (not knowing what to expect), service was great and the place is located in the middle of the Poblado district. All in all a great experience.

Our Medellin friends took us here for lunch. Now Colombian food isn't really as popular nor as interesting as, say Mexican or Thai cuisine, but as far as Colombian regional fare goes, the always packed Mondongos is probably the best restaurant to try it at. We ordered the stars of the menu: the glorious cholesterol bomb known as la bandeja... More

Great food does not need to be complicated. Mondongos is serving up classic Colombian dishes and simple meat dishes but everything is prepared well and with great flavor. Even the grilled chicken platter was delicious with aji dulce and picante to top the ready seasoned meat. The sides were delicious and the sangria was surprisingly good....and strong! It's casual and... More

The hotel recommended this place to me. I had what they call Bandeja Paisa. It is really big so come hungry. It was worth every peso as the dish was cooked really well.

Mondongo's Restaurant is one of my favs restaurants in Medellin. I went with 2 Finish girls and my bro, we are so much and it was very pleasant. We loved every dish we ordered and at the end, it was very cheap for such a great food!

We've been to this place by recommendation from our hotel and we had a bandeja paisa. Not a big fan of pork's fat but i would have to admit that I enjoyed it. The portions are very big and the sauces they bring los amos are very tasty.

As visitors my wife were well pleased with the experience. Decor is somewhat dinerish, but don't be out off. We stuck to the main chicken dish,and ordered extras (rice and beans) that we didn't need! Chicken was grilled, tasty, surrounded with avocado , plantains, etc. Also, added half bottle of acceptable wine. Waiters attentive, helpful, and organized the taxi back... More
