This is a set menu place with several options for your main dish. Includes dessert, drink and soup! Plum sauce is great. Service was first class and 15COP is a fantastic deal.

You're offered a few set meals (all courses included), such as fish, beef or chicken. And every course was delicious! Well-lit and comfortable. Friendly staff. Just remember that, like many local restaurants in San Gil, they aren't open late.

The dinner is sooo good! You get a starter, main dish, dessert and drinks (normally fruit juice). The waiters are attentive and fast! Many locals come here as it is very budget friendly. For less than 5 USD you have a 3 course menu.

One of the best restaurants in town that serve a full "almuerzo ejecutivo" for cheap. Includes: lemonade, fresh fruit, soup of the day, salad, main dish and desert. The servers are extremely friendly.

Ate so much! The service was amazing! Seriously quick but everything served with a smile. Good price for food and a simple selection for the main meal. Go, you won't need to eat for a day afterwards :)

We ate here twice in our 3 day stay in San Gil as we found the meals were very generous (fruit, bread, soup, main meal with meat, rice and potatoes, salad and dessert) and tasty. For 14,000 COP each this was too good to miss!...More
