Mondongo is a typical Caribbean soup made with diced tripe (stomach of a cow) or Callos as they called in Spain. The specialty of this restaurant is this soup and as you will see is difficult to find a table, especially at lunch time. There are also some other paisa dishes, all of them with the same quality. Try it.... More

The grilled chicken was very good and the portion was large. (It really is hard to ruin pollo parrilla). The rest of the meal, aguacate, mondongo and sides were ok. The food was all pretty bland and tasteless and we had to keep adding hot sauce to make it more palatable.

Authentic food, large portions and good service for a large group of friends. Even though the restaurant was full we were well tended. It is well located at El Poblado area.

I had a big bowl of MONDONGO for lunch which filled me up the whole day, a very busy local restaurant, attentive service although not a fancy one, décor is just acceptable and the price is reasonable, recommend it!

I had the tipico mixto and it was the largest amount of food I've seen in a while. It could have fed a small family. The soup was the best part for sure. The soup is hearty and filling. No need for extras next time.

I had the steak and , plantains and avocado and everything was wonderful. My waiter was very kind and even flipped to the menu to English for me.

I don't like the Mondongo so I feel a little bad writing this review 'cause I'm not in position to bring my opinions about the house specialty, however, I do eat in this restaurant because the other meals are just great. Try the meat, the chicken, or Bandeja Paisa if you have a good appetite. The service is excellent and... More

I really enjoy coming here! It's home-style, cosy food. Simple and tasty. The restaurant is not fancy and not pretencious. It's PLAIN but comfortable. Expect some line during lunch time if you don't get there early but it's worth the wait.
