A little pricey but worth trying it. It's a place for the locals and it does serve a tasty local food indeed. The portions are very big and the service is great

Our first experience with authentic Colombian food was very pleasant and interesting. Our wonderfully cordial and patient waiter delivered plates which were overflowing. One included sweet banana and green avocado, the other had a large chicharron (a long thick bacon like solid piece of pork), one small whole potato, a large pile of dry, finely minced meat, and a cooked...

This is a great restaurant to try authentic Antioquian cuisine. It's in one of the nicer neighborhoods in Medellin, close the Parque Lleras. This also makes it a great restaurant for a Friday or Saturday night, because it is a short and safe walk from a lot of night clubs. Also, as a vegetarian, it was refreshing to find Authentic...

I had the "Solomo Steak" which was good quality. I asked for some things to be changed on my sides and the waiter got it all wrong as he did for my Associate. Place is open air and a little noisy, and there may be flies. Food was ok a little over priced and the waiter we had was not... More

I tried the dish with the same name as the restaurant. It turned out to be a large bowl of soup. I'm not sure what kind of meat was in it, but it was a very hearty soup. It was really good and the service was good. I think it was about 22 mil pesos for the soup and a... More

If you haven't tried the traditional farmhand plate elsewhere, you might be interested in checking it out here. It usually consists of minced beef, a fried plantain, rice, some deep-fried pork skin (chichurron), beans, and maybe an egg. That said, you could probably do better. You would be lucky to find a fresh vegetable in this place. The food is... More

Very good traditional Colombian food including Bandeja Paisa. They also have a restaurant in Doral (Miami) FL. Reasonable prices and good food!

I've heard so much about Mondongos that I was afraid to be disappointed. Well, you love it or you hate it and I loved it both the dish and the service. The waiter went at great length explaining the ingredients that go into a Mondongo (tripes, etc.) and recommended that I take half a portion. Once it arrived he explained... More

We wanted to try the Paisa Plate and went to Mondogos. We all had the plata and it was enourmous and tasy and inexpensive. We likes to fast service and food quality was good.

You must have Mondongo, if you want local food. If there is a line up, it should move fast. Staff is very efficient and friendly. If you don't want Mondongo, there are other options. Regardless, the food is good and served in big portions.
