If you want a decent steak in the city and feel like you are sitting on a large outdoor terrace, this is a good place to stop in... The service is fast and waiters are kind and understanding ;-) As much as the food is good it does seem a little too much line cooked. The salads seemed pre prepped... More

It's a huge dining under a thatched roof, making comfort in it because the temperature regulation. Quite spacious tables that allow placing the dishes. The service is good and diligent, we went to a time when the lunch service was finishing which ensured good service. Prices are reasonable but the portions are very large.

I was offered a complementary invitation for two, and I was said to reach out to them for details. Now, it has been more than three months without any reply to my emails. Not a good business practice.

this is a "parrilla" - a grill restaurant so, you expect that the meat will be great (at least reasonable...) - and it wasn't. i got a dry stake, with no real taste. truly not recommended (there are many other good ones around)

This place's architecture is warm and casual. Food is decent, but one would enjoy way better any dish from Lenos y Carbon menu. Beware of meat's term as they don't follow international standards. For instance, their "medium" would be "medium/rare" in any other country. Now, the core of my review: TERRIBLE SERVICE! These guys have a great business in great... More

We went there (4 adults and 2 kids) to have breakfast. The staff was extremely kind and helpful, the food was really delicious and the ambiance was really folkloric. the prices were really really really good considering that I'm exchanging dollars for pesos.

The restaurant is very nice, all outdoors and very "tropical looking" with live bands and so on. Nice selection of cocktails to drink. The food is nice. I was expecting a bit more but it was nice. Sobrebarriga was very nice. I ordered the baby beef which I found it was a bit dry... Empanadas were very nice too.

Very good place to eat typical Colombian food. It has a great variety: meats, red beans, sea food, but probably the best typical food is "sancocho & ajiaco (soups), sobrebarriga (meat), empanadas, y patacones". Best drink: lulada (naranjilla non-alcoholic juice). It is a nice place, has some few kids attractions & short horse ride (around the restaurant). If the place... More

It's not a fancy restaurant, it's a typical one. If you want to eat traditional food from Colombia with folcloric music, then go. Ask for frijoles and jugo de lulo.
