Ufff truly different meal - you definitely need to try it!

If you are visiting Medellin, I recommend this place to taste something new to your palate. You won't regret. Good service and traditional to the city.

Poor service, high prices compared to quality of food. Acquired fame I believe because former president Uribe used to or goes there; therefore, people assume place is the very best. For my personal experience, I would compare this place to any other average eatery in Medellin. Twice I asked that rice served with mondongo be very hot for I am... More

Our tour guide (a Medellin resident) recommended this place for good Colombian food. It did not disappoint. The Bandejo Paisa was very good: chicharron, white rice, ground beef, sweet plantain, with an egg on top. Even better when you supplement it with the avocado, cilantro and sauces that they give you with your meal. It was a little noisy sitting... More

The place looks like a country side place where you could enjoy meal either indoor or outdoor. The waiters are quite fast and they take care of the dinner guests. We tried two of the must typical dishes bandeja paisa and mondongo. Both are real tasty. Very good place to try good typical food in city. Highly recommended

My group of friends and I wanted an authentic Colombian meal and we definitely got that! Everything was so fresh, authentic, and so tasty! By far the best meal we had in Medellin! We tried to go to a Colombian "authentic" restaurant here in USA after we came back, and after trying Mondongos there is NO comparison!!! Cant wait to... More

Over the past eight years I have tried mondongo at more than 15 places in Colombia and while all were decent or good, the best has always been at the original Mondongo´s at La Setenta in Laureles (Cra 70). As good as it is, and as hungry as you may be, you will be hard pressed to finish all of... More

There is a wide range of variety for those fussy eaters and those that want a healthy choice. The food is fresh and the service is friendly and very courteous.

Great service! Very friendly and polite people serving. The food is good. Although i dont like typical mondongo stew; to porky/earthy for me. The sides we nice though. And the rest of the food is great. The road the terrace is on can be noisy. The decoration of the place is not great but the ambiance is good.

There are several Mondongo's restaurants in Medellín, and we tried the locations in Poblado and Laureles. Both were consistently excellent. I tried the pork in mushroom sauce that was delicious. The solomito (a New York steak cut Colombian style, but with all the flavor) was outstanding. My friend tried a breaded fish that was excellent. Most of their platters include... More

Went to this restaurant after being recommended by the hotel Laureles 70 staff, this restaurant was the best food we ate , during our stay, and yet very affordable.
