Good meet, not to many choice but way sufficient. Good burger with vegetarian option. Burger from 10 000 to 15 000. Meat options grilled style around 20 25000. Quick service and free beers I'd you come from Sam's Vip hostal. What else?

Great service! My partner got a hamburger (she loved it) and i got the meat platter! Should have gotten the tenderloin but everything was fantastic and so professional. Made it the perfect date night to end our stay in san gil

The Service was incredibly, painfully slow that I had enough time to wonder if they forgot we were there. Having gone with a group of about 10 eventually our food came out. One meal at a time, so that by the point the last of the food came out, everyone else was done. Fries came separately. The steaks were good,... More

Most of the reviews about this place are accurate, the steaks are ok but a bit hit and miss, the service is dreadfully slow, parts of the order coming at different times. The choice is limited. The music is dire.

During my last time in San Gil I couldn't go to Sam & Sam, so this time I was really into this restaurant, so I went with a co-worker for lunch, but unfortunately they don't have menu options before 16:00, we were only offered the daily menu, which had few options for people who can't eat anything. No sugar free... More

This place does live up to its promise that it has good steaks. The best in Colombia? I am not sure about that, but they are certainly good and credit to the owners for doing something a bit different in a backwater like San Gil Ambience is also quite nice, set in a courtyard and they have an antisocial cat....

We were in the accommodation here. Our room didn't have a window but I think the ones with windows were quite noisy from the street, I didn't mind. The room was clean and comfortable. Quiet atmosphere, good place to rest.

I can't comment on the meat options but I wasn't overly impressed with the veggy burger. Nice atmosphere though and they accepted credit card when I was stuck :-)

Restaurant always seemed a bit quiet compared to gringo mikes a few doors down so lacked atmosphere. Thought we'd try it based on the reviews. My 'medium' steak was virtually raw, and one of us who had the steak with ant sauce was violently ill that night - I know we can't pin that down to the meal, but maybe....... More

Thanks for you comment, we like positive and negative comments, our restaurant it is a bit quiet as it is not a fast food place comparing to others close by, about the person violently ill should know that food poisoning starts making effect 24 hours after you ate, all our steaks are fresh and don't spend no longer that 48...

We were originally booked at El Dorado next door, but it was a little dirty for our taste. Luckily we were able to switch here after the first night. Our private family room with its own bathroom was super clean. The atmosphere is mellow with a beautiful courtyard and hammocs up on the balcony floor. We had a great view... More
