A great discovery! Can't wait to be back!

If you want to enjoy a nice meal in a nice, green and relaxing context, this is the place! On weekends is very full and you might have to queue a bit, but the waiting is soon compensated. The meat is excellent, the portions are generous and if you really want to eat like a Colombian you can... read more

I am a meat lover. I have been fortunate enough to have been to many restaurants claiming to serve great steaks and burgers in several continents. Galapago Campestre is up there with the best. Don't expect a beef wellington or some sort of fancy dish. Here you can choose from a few different cuts which can be prepared in a... More

Even if you ask for a "half" portion it would be HUGE but delicious. The "patacón" was the very best of our lunch.

I ate meat in many restaurants in Colombia. This is one of the best!!! They serve way large portions, I would recommend share it. My Lomo was one of the best considering all other steak restaurants in this region. Prices are vert good compare to what they serve.

The portions were huge and definitely can be shared to enjoy more choices of dishes. The ribs were great and the steak was very good. We ordered a second portion of chorizos since they were so good. The hamburger was very large and looked even bigger since it was quite wide (but not very thick). The side dishes were also... More

We ate here with friends who live in the area and said this is their favorite place to eat. Most of us had their hamburgers which are the largest burgers I have ever seen in a restaurant. They aren't just huge, they were actually very good too. If you are not a big eater you can easily split one between... More

It is a good place to visit, plate sizes are really huge and you can share. Waitress attention is very good, you feel they do care. Chunchullo is a most. Very crowded in peak hours. I wouldn't give a 5 star because it's quite expensive and tricky if you consider that taxes are not included, which is done in quite... More

This restaurant is an awesome Colombian experience for anyone who wants to get a real feeling for the people and culture of this wonderful country. It's mostly open-air or in tent structures so it's a very friendly kind-of large extended-family atmosphere. The greatest thing is that you can see them cooking everything on super large grills inside. Try everything! Including... More
