The food and service were just good, for a Colombian restaurant not to have Colombian beer is a sign that they do not take being a Colombian restaurant seriously and the modern decor did not set the right tone of Colombia

Thank you, for your visit and review Tony. We love to get feedback from our guests and we regret that we did not have Colombian beer in stock during your visit. We do offer it depending on availability while we change distributors. Bandeja Paisa was conceived is owned and primarily managed by native Colombians, so I respectfully disagree; we in... More

This place is really nice. Our server Daniela was great. The dish that my wife got she loved, it was the snapper. I got the skirt steak and I loved it. The service was awesome. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Very disappointed. Started with the nail salon smell coming from next door... The waitress was very nice but not very good. There were no other customers but she forgot many things and seldom returned. A can of coke cost 2.50 no refills. We eat at alot of Colombian restaurants.

We tried this place since we had just bought a Groupon for it. It is a beautiful restaurant and the bathrooms are fancy. We ordered a papas con chorizo, lomo saltado and a grilled steak. The papas con chorizo were fantastic. The lomo and steak - not so much. The lomo was drenched in teriyaki sauce so that is all... More

Hubby and I tried this place out for romantic date night when we were in town for my birthday and OMG, what a gem!! I lived in Miami and was born there - so I've had Columbian food. This was, by far, one of the best Columbian meals I've ever had! Lomo saltado was incredibly rich, flavorful and tender! We... More

Last time I dined here was 2 years ago, and I LOVVVED IT! But we went again today and they changed the decor- from original Colombian brick and decor to 'upscale' modern..... Not a fan. Besides taking away the cozy feel of the place, they served Budweiser with refajo instead of a traditional cerveza agria from Colombia. And finally- the... More

I took my girl here for lunch today for her first Colombian food outing. The service was average and food was just okay. I had the full Bandeja Paisa and, overall, it was pretty average. The beans were a bit watery, the steak was cooked perfectly, but not seasoned, the chicharrones was a little over cooked. The plantains were different... More

This is a Columbian restaurant. Their food is delicious! Service is fantastic. The waiters come over often to ask if you need anything at all. Then you get a visit from the owner and asks you were you are from and thanks you for being in his restaurant. Awesome!

Recently renovated, this restaurant offer a "gourmet style" so called Colombian food. The taste is good, portions are smaller when compared to other Latino restaurants but still satisfying. The menu very general with not many Colombian dishes was printed in a very small font making it difficult to read. Location decor is plain - you would expect more comfort based... More

We've been looking for a good Colombian restaurant in the Orlando area for years. We've tried five and frequented a couple of those, but they just didn't quite hit the mark. That is until we tried Mi Bandeja Paisa on Friday night. I had been craving some good Colombian chorizo and chicharon for months. A neighbor told us about MBP... More
