The food was average at lunch time , it was a very big restaurant with only a few customers , it does not have a nice environment , and the service is very poor . I would not recommend it .

Good typical food but when you order you have to wait 40 minutes or even more. I recommend bandeja paisa.

We have visited the Simon Parilla restaurant for lunch with a group of 12. With a mix of traditional Colombian dishes, like sancocho & modongo and meat we had like a good mix of what the restaurant offers. The service was very slow. Its a big restaurant and maybe they were understaffed. Most of the dishes were served cold. Personal,... More

The place was empty, I had my doubts and almost left. Then I thought, it's raining, it's a Monday night, and 8pm.. so against my instinct, I came back in. Needles to say, it was a great choice. The service wasn't great but, acceptable. Our appetizer was "Entrada vayecaucana", delicious. Main dish, and out of this world, LA Bandeja Paisa.... More

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. Recommended entries "chunchullo" for 3 to... More

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
