Mamona without the drive!

A good option in Villavicencio without having to make the long drive to eat mamona. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a very good restaurant, the best beef (mamona) we ate during our stay. It was full, we had to wait a little but it was worth it. Looked like most of the costumers were locals, we had a very good lunch there.

at the middle of the day when you get hungry this is a great option to refill your balley and taste the flavor of the original recipe of "mamona"; this is beef from the calf...just yummy
