Beautiful steak that melts in your mouth. Other dishes like chorizo or chicharron are quite generous. Reasonable prices. Quick service. I would definitely recommend it.

The steak was really good, and the service fast. The ambient music was really bad though. The price is good. Recommended.

Excellent food fresh and cooked to order. The Yucca fries were awesome. The Arepas were very fresh. The meat comes in gigantic portions. One of my favorite restaurants in Colombia!

Punta de Anca 300 gr thick cut it's amazing. They have at least 20 different options in the menu and there are some excellent choices.
