need to know La Bonga del Sinu serves the meat from Còrdoba, famous Colombian region to raise cattle ! There are branches in Barranquilla, Cartagena and Monterìa, and several in Bogotá... well known for the banana chips and cuts, nice atmosphere from the Caribbean... just ask for a Sombrero Vueltiao to take your Colombian picture !

Stopped in for lunch; we should have kept going. They put banana chips on the table. They tasted as if they were left out overnight. Ordered a chicken consommé to start, asking them to put in a few potatoes and vegetables. Tasted as if they they dissolved 2 bullion cubes, it was that salty. Potatoes must have been from the...

I went with my family for lunch. The prices for plates of meat are too expensive and they're not even that big. The hamburger was great but the "Arroz de cerdo" wasn't. Fish was more than 40k and very dry. I think there's a lot of better restaurants for the same price around usaquen.

The lamb (cordero) burger caught my eye and I asked them for grilled onions rather than raw and put on a different roll - no problems. One of the best burgers I have had in my life. Loved it - made me forget about In-N-Out!

We loved everything about the place. The decor, service, food - this place is awesome. Most of us focused on meats and they were fantastic. Pepper steaks, beef chorizo, chicken - cooked to perfection and delicious. The only thing I would improve is the fact that all you get is meat + french fries. There is no salad, nothing on... More

A "fusion" of typical food from the Caribbean area and the rest of Colombia. Service is amazing and the food is just good!!!

Was recommended this place by locals and did not disappoint. We visited just after the lunch rush and tried most things in the varied menu which is a meat lover's heaven. Most ordered meat dishes and someone ordered the chicken stew (caldo de gallina) which took a lot of space on the table after all its accompaniments were brought in.... More

after a bad experience in a more trendy meet restaurant, i was looking for an honest local restaurant with good meat. i end up at Bonga del Sinu and had a very good surprise. very friendly staff, reliable, not pushy to increase your order. good wine, and the meat was very good and perfectly cooked

We had a meat platter that was very good. I agree with many people that the service was slow but, it was cooked to order so I give them some slack. Great location, real close to the Morrison Hotel, a gem of a hotel. Back to the food, you will enjoy your meal, but be patient and enjoy the surroundings.
